In deep space, the crew of the commercial starship Nostromo is awakened from their cryo-sleep capsules halfway through their journey home to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. The terror begins when the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship. An organism from inside an egg leaps out and attaches itself to one of the crew, causing him to fall into a coma.
Before the full size alien emerges it must grow inside a human being before exploding out of its guts…oh that sounds lovely. This adorable face hugger is the pre creature to the full size alien.
