I haven’t had a nightmare about one of those creatures in a long time, in fact, not since I watched the first Alien movie for the first time.
Time for me to introduce another sci-fi universe that I love and want to learn more about.
I think I first came across the trailer of Alien vs. Predator a few years back before pursuing the Alien trilogy. You know me, I love my aliens, no matter how vicious they get.
The first movie, I feel like I want to watch it again after that dream. The first time you see it, it seems scary, but afterwards, it’s not really anymore, but never gets old.
They call em Facehuggers and I often just refer to what comes out of the egg as just a parasite instead of that. Then they call the baby Xenomorphs Chestbursters, but I just call them…..well what would be another name for them? Maybe larvae since they look just like caterpillar once they pop out of a person’s chest. (like a daisy!!!)
Alright, I’ll save my thoughts on the movies for another post, time to talk about the dream.
The dream definitely reminds me of what happened in the first Alien movie. I wish I could have been more like Ripley in this dream, but I wasn’t unfortunately.
I was on board a small medical space station working in the labs. One of my ideal careers, just in space this time, which would be even more awesome. That was when two other staff members came into the room carrying a middle-aged man with a parasite attached to his face. The doctors failed to remove it, and after several hours, it detached and I examined it in the lab. At first, everything seemed fine until while I was still analyzing the parasite, the patient was in the other room recovering, until he started coughing and shaking uncontrollably, and then a small alien larvae burst from his chest killing him. I went into the room to try and catch it, but the creature slithered away.
I called security and told them to watch out for the creature, But no one prevailed in catching it, Soon the whole station went dark and I felt like no one reported back to one another.
Then, a few hours later, my lab went dark, and I heard the sound of crawling in the vents. I hid inside one of the empty lockers and suddenly there was hissing from outside.
|Still the most terrifying aliens out there|
A fully grown Xenomorph roaming around the facility. Damn those things grow up really fast! It walked closer and into the room I was in. I held my breath praying it won’t know I’m there. (they look like they are blind and if that’s the case, then they must have a strong hearing and sense of smell.)
