Those Facehuggers with their clickity clackity steps and sheer rapey purposes creeps me out way more than being killed outright by an outright old school self respecting Xenomorph.

Scified- Go!

There is always something Horrific about the Face Hugger if you ask me,  and it would be able to sneak up on you from anywhere more easy and then you could face a fight for your life to keep it off you.

The Xenomorph would be Quick and less Painful experience.

The Face Hugger a horrific experience getting Face Hugged and then the Trauma does not end there.. as you get the brutal and painful Chest Buster.

Yeah, the facehugger smothers you then impregnates you, resulting in an agonising chest bursting. It's all so horrendous!

Facehugger.  By a long stretch.

DK - Hmm...I would have to say the facehugger is the far more unsettling choice! I have always found them to be quite hideous - and beyond monstrous! :)

It seems unanimous.I have to agree on the facehuggers.It's a lot more intimate,gross,and invasive.The chestburster is a much more terrible death.As BigDave pointed out a xenomorph kills you quick,a chestburster can be long and agonizing as evidenced by Kane(RIP John Hurt).The whole idea of a facehugger impregnating a male was to make the male audience uncomfortable.

Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for

In appearance, the facehuggers are- lack of a better word- creepier (like giant spiders), while the xenos are more horrifying and intimidating, if this makes any sense to you. 

I'd rather be in a room with a facehugger than a fully grown Xeno though, just cover your mouth with one hand and parry the attacking facehugger with the other hand while step dancing around like there was no tomorrow.

This tactic doesn't work very effectively against an adult xeno. 


MemberFacehuggerJan-28-2017 7:45 AM

If I can always see the facehugger, I'm not as worried. Doesn't matter whether or not I can see the Xeno. I'm toast.

That being said, I would prefer death by Xeno to the facehugger/chestburster experience.

Now if the Xeno has sexual plans for me, give me the facehugger any day. But that has really only been hinted at towards females.

Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!

Facehuggers by far..  They're smaller,  creepier and when they latch on it doesn't kill you. It tortures you with nightmares, plants a seed inside you and then you experience a grueling death hours later. Way worse than a quick tail through the face.

The facehugger practically f*cks its victims' throats

No thanks 


MemberFacehuggerJan-28-2017 1:11 PM

If the amnesia didn't erase that, I'd agree.

Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!


MemberChestbursterJan-28-2017 1:18 PM

Sure, unless there are buddies who witnessed and bring you the bad news of what left your face (and pulled out of your throat)


MemberFacehuggerJan-28-2017 1:21 PM

It's like when I get blackout drunk. If I don't remember, it didn't happen.

Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!


MemberChestbursterJan-28-2017 1:41 PM

Lol I get what you mean but I personally never get blackout drunk, I don't want to wake up not knowing what happened regardless of what it is (beaten, robbed, carrot in ass and anal pain)

MemberTrilobiteJan-28-2017 2:36 PM

MYRDDIN365 - a woman, I can certainly understand the apprehension that would arise from knowing the Big Chap had more, um, "romantic" plans for me. With that being said, I believe the less desireable fate is the one in which death also ocurs! :)


MemberFacehuggerJan-28-2017 2:46 PM

Facehugger for me too.

I woudnt like to be in a room with one knowing the pain would endure and be higher then a fast slash of the xeno.

MemberTrilobiteJan-28-2017 2:51 PM

TIAGO_MIAMI_LA - Indeed! :)


MemberFacehuggerJan-28-2017 2:55 PM

@Something real

Just the feeling of waking up and knowing you cant do absolutly nothing other then kill yourself before you experience ultimate pain..and that inside of you that thing is already hatching..i really think theres no match to it.


Altho in ac i imagine the neomorph birth goes even further on the pain section... :3

Something Real

MemberTrilobiteJan-28-2017 3:02 PM

TIAGO_MIAMI_LA - Hmm...I would be very torn with regards to how I would proceed if I realized I was carrying an Alien to term. Self-destruction is not something I would ever fathom lightly. However, in such an extreme circumstance, I might contemplate a swift demise for myself! With regards to Alien: Covenant, you are almost certainly correct. The "backburster" is most likely going to be dreadful in the extreme! :)


MemberFacehuggerJan-28-2017 4:28 PM

@Ninxeno I'm actually agreeing that, except in the case of the xeno raping a dude and then killing him (in my case), the facehugger is the worst way to go by far. 

I actually don't get blackout drunk either, it was just a great opportunity.

Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!


MemberOvomorphJan-28-2017 4:51 PM

i vote the beast that screws you over the beast that eats you


MemberPraetorianJan-28-2017 7:16 PM

That's one way to look at it Id.

Facehugger, no doubt. Something attaches to your face so you can’t see and it puts something down your throat. The result is a monster that kills you by ripping through your chest.
