The Facehuggers in Alien: Romulus will feature a new characteristic! It's been discovered that the Facehugger will now feature hooked barbs on its appendages in the next Alien movie by Fede Alvarez! The discovery was recently made by Mike's Monsters on Facebook, check out his discovery below: 

"Fun fact!

The Facehuggers in ALIEN: ROMULUS have a new special design feature that no one has noticed yet from the Alien Day teaser from last year.

Check out the hooked barbs on their creepy little fingers." - Mike's Monsters

As if the Facehuggers weren't creepy and difficult to avoid suffocating by already - now their fingers come with hooks to latch into their victim's skulls!

This new feature will surely be a gruesome one... trying to pull a Facehugger off one's face already proved fatal in most cases, but now attempting to remove the Facehugger will literally rip the host's face off in the process! 

What do you think of this new design feature? Sound off in the comments!

Weren't the barbs on the Super Facehugger?

Indeed you’re right, the Super/Royal Facehugger from Alien 3 did sport barbs but only on the first two appendages. It also featured webbed tissue between each of the fingers as well. 

This appears to indicate the regular Facehuggers have barbs and on all fingers, not just the first two. It also doesn’t appear to have any webbing so I assume this isn’t a Super/Royal Facehugger - although if it is, that suggests we might see a Praetorian or Queen in the new movie…
