Is that Bill Paxton's son? Ironic that he plays both the facehugger victim and the Alien.

It was!

Totally dug this short.

My order is

Specimen
Alone
Ore
Containment

Night Shift
Harvest

Neocron

Well that certainly is the most unique of all the shorts... can't say that it makes my top 3 list, but it certainly leaves the viewer a lot to think about.  Having seen all the shorts, my list is as follows:

Ore
Harvest
Specimen
Alone
Night Shift
Containment

robbritton

I enjoyed that very much up to a point, but can't help but feel it would have been more affecting to
Spoiler
just have had the synthetic and the facehugger gradually break down together. I felt the inclusion of the human swung it back toward Alien cliche territory just as it was promising to be something wholly unique and potentially quite profound.

Still, it was enjoyable as it was, so I can't complain too much.

Darkness

Meh, this one was my least favourite out of the lot. Very much a slow burn film and didn't really amount to much. It was too much like David and Alien Covenant for me. I don't think any of the short films have been bad - they're all different and much better quality than what we'd get from a fan film.

My fav out of all of them!

I can agree on that, the third part was just too "classic" for that course that the1st and 2nd part went for...
I kind of liked the Harvest, so it's really just about the personal view.

Maybe not the best but the weirdest one for sure.

Swap the first two around and that's my take.

I'll take it ;)

I wish more of the films had taken such a unique approach to the material.

P-Rock

It's a unique approach, but it's not very good and kind of ridiculous. I enjoyed the music but the cinematography and acting is bad.

2. Specimen
3. Night Shift
4. Alone
