There's a drawing by the name of "Ladies" in David's sketches that shows the chestburster as it looks while gestating. This work was done by Dane Hallet and his inspiration for it was Alien 3's poster featuring the Queen nymph but with a more detailed and closer look to Ridley's original. As the chestburster springs forth from Oram you can see the creature evolving on screen from nymph to young adult. I believe the chestbursters redesign is simply because of the modern effects we have available today as opposed to 1979.

Yes, and it was mentioned previously by one of the members that it is possible that both versions exist during the events of Covenant.

Could be from exiting Oram's body and the heat inside.

The steam is a really nice touch, hot body - cold tomblike room.

so is Oram's fingers twitching and curling up into a spider-like rigor mortis.

I thought so too, Ridley definitely has an eye for detail. The way Oram convulsed with his tongue piercing out was uncomfortable to watch lol

Oram- "What do you believe in David?"

David- contemplates for a moment "... Creation."

 

Love this scene!

Thank you for the awesome gif :D Didn't realize how much gore the chestburster was covered in, truly horrific. I also dug the transparent look the little Xeno had, could that harken back to Giger's original look for the titular beast?
