Well...he said before Prometheus came out "I'm going to scare the shit out of you!" and failed pretty much on that...
...the med pod scene started good, then became meh once saw generic squid..
...Fifield was a radioactive mutant-zombie...felt so out of place...the snakes, didn't care much for them...
..the unknown was scary though, the living Engineer what he might do, react, say...the last part was cut out, so bad decision...
That's my sentiment, too. He made no attempt to hide that 'Prometheus
' was going to be his one, true attempt to better the fear factor of 'Alien
' and failed. He wasn't even just referencing that there would supposedly be a scene which would be more nightmarish than the chestburster eruption, but Lambert's disturbing death scene, too.
Fifield's death? Ehhh
... Lambert's was far more unsettling and we still don't know what happened. Embryonic extraction? Not exactly revolutionary (and, rightly, came across as a little stupid to people who have any kind of actual medical knowledge).
So, no, I'm not convinced. He said he'd "scare the shit" out of us and didn't even get close to that. It'll probably just be on the same level if he thought that stuff was terrifying.
Now the trailer for Prometheus was terrifying, I wish we had gotten that movie instead. I can still watch that trailer and get excited lol
I wonder who was responsible for editing that together.
