Milburn, Prometheus.  Arm broken in two...then has the giant snake (hammerpeade) slide in his suit and eventually slithers in his mouth! aargh!

Also would like to know what happened to the Milburn's corpse....did it reanimate like Fifield? 

I'd like to visit LV223 and see if his body is still there!.....visit as in: watching a video feed from a remote camera drone while i drink coffee on the flight deck of  my starship 1 lightyear away.....

Fun thread! My list: 


Aliens - Burke getting what he deserved

Alien 3 - Ripley

Alien: Resurrection - Perez. That was the general, correct? I'm talking about the dude who gets it in the back of the head and then tkaes a chunk out and looks at it!

Prometheus - Charlie. Pretty crazy sequence!

Alien: Covenant -  Oram. One of my favorite scenes from the franchise!

MonsterZero I don't think Milburn would have been reanimated, that Hammerpede destroyed him. Fifield inhaled the Accelerant and was still alive to mutate.

My list:

Alien: Kane chestburst

Aliens: When the Colonial Marines were ambushed in the Alien nest

Alien 3: Newt, Hicks, and Bishops untimely demise. 

Alien Resurrection: Purvis and Wren-chestburster through the head 

Prometheus: Charlie's death by fire

Alien Covenant: Oram's chestburst

Alien - Brett (amazing scene)

Aliens - Drake going down swinging

Alien 3 - agree with Murphy into the fan

Resurrection - Distephano head mush

Prometheus - Weyland's death by decapitated android head bludgeon

Covenant - Oram

Prometheus: The Engineer turning Peter Weyland into a unicorn when braining him with David’s severed head (Meredith Vickers is a very close second)

Alien Covenant: Ankor death by neomorph tail

Alien: Ash turned to milk by Parker’s flame

Aliens: Carter Burke meets gnashing teeth

Alien 3: Ellen Ripley into fire (because Michael Bishop told her not to do it...she showed him!!!)

Alien Resurrection: Purvis bringing it to Wren (he needed it)

IRaptus & Ingeniero I agree with Weyland's death, just desserts for his hubris. Love the way Ingeniero put it though lmao

 IRaptus Distephano's head mush was brutal af, totally out of left field lol Drake was a boss though, fighting for his Vasquez :3

Alien- Ash- I liked watching him die.

Aliens- (the deleted cocooned Burke explosive death scene- a fitting way to go since he knew the fear of the colonists)

Alien 3- Dillon- Fisticuffs and keeps going until the lead gets poured. Died with his boots on and was a bad ass.

Resurrection- The Ripley 7 mercy killing. It was sad but felt relief that the poor clone's suffering was over. Christie is a close second. His death had impact- demonstrated selflessness and sacrifice.

Prometheus- Weyland's death- the irony was just too great to ignore.

AC- the neomorph getting capped was satisfying after what it did to Rosenthall.

I will have to look up the deleted scene with Burke dk. Thank you.

Its a tough one...

But the Original Kane Chest Burster has to take it from me....

But then i also think the Ripley Sacrifice was also very fitting.

Anyways. My favorite is probably the one where the guy (Murphy?) falls into the fan (Alien 3). It is fast, he can't do anything about it and I am not sure if he knows that he is about to fall into the huge butcher-blades (or whatever to call them).

Another one is where Jude runs from the Xeno, he almost survives but he gets knocked by the Xeno (Alien 3).


When Dallas dies because you just hear what happens.


Where Gorman and Vasques hold the grenade and they know that there is no way out. (“You always were an asshole Gorman”) - Vasques

Alien 3

My favorite death in this movie and in the franchise in general is probably the one where the guy (Murphy?) falls into the fan. It is fast, he can't do anything about it and I am not sure if he knows that he is about to fall into the huge butcher-blades (or whatever to call them).


The swimming scene when the woman dies, there is something claustrophobic about it. It is probably my favorite in the movie. It is probably the scene that has most of the feeling from the original movie with the claustrophobia.


When Holloway gets turned into fried bacon. He knows that he is finished and begs to be killed. Poor Shaw even though she was stupid.


Probably when Ledward pukes blood, that was gory and then the back-burster gets out. It is just too bad that we didn't get to know anything about his character.
