Now We're Getting Somewhere with the Alien Prequel


Forget my previous reservations about Ridley Scott's planned Alien prequel, whose narrative hurdles and franchise sluggishness had me down. At least they did until being reminded of some of the hot special effects Scott might revive from the first film -- like the one where he "had the xenomorph's translucent head cavity filled with maggots to create some texture and movement - the maggots were sprinkled with LSD and sugar to get them going." That's allll anyone needed to hear. Sorry to ever doubt you, Ridley. As you were. [Guardian]
