I'm willing to accept that. There's just something about the idea of literally being scared to death that I think is amazing.

I was never keen on the idea of her dying of fright. Seemed like an anti-climax.

The one I wish we'd got is the Newborn-style death, because that would've been horrific.

And pure unadulterated schlock.

I'd argue Alien's partly that already.

I like what we got - even if it's offscreen.

That explains a lot. 😶

But seriously it only works in Resurrection because that's already the place that film lives in, and the added dynamic of the shifting emotions, from disgust to pity.

That was Parker's fate. Well, Hunter's.

I like to imagine the alien very gently gripped her toe and psychically told Lambert "Let me show you a little something to take your mind off the pain." Ala Major Payne.

There is.

Very difficult to portray on screen though.

I definitely prefer the heart attack.

I'm not suggesting transplanting the Newborn's death directly into the first movie. But the same demise played less gratuitously and more horrifically would've been chilling imo.

The idea is interesting but I'm fine with what we got.

I highly doubt it,  Lambert was, at the time prior to the prequels the first female human contact the Alien had ever had and without prior knowledge of human anatomy would find things difficult.

in that case it could be argued it was exploring that anatomy in the scene.
