Looks good, except for the dog.

And why is the dog not going apesh#t? There's an alien nearby.

Why is the alien drool seemingly dissolving the floor?

Love the atmosphere and the cinematography of this short.

Perhaps with the alien drool they're taking inspiration from the Runner which could spit acid.

I thought it was due to her wounds after Ripley shooting at her.

Pretty sure it was wounded. The spitting thing didn't happen 'till the later movies. And on that, the Runner and Res Aliens spit acid (somehow) but they don't drool it. The Alien in this short might be injured or something.

She's not bleeding from anywhere we see.

It's really only used to give an effect to the audience of an "Oh f**k!" moment after we think Ripley and co have made it back safely. Seeing it isn't really important. But up to that point, it's established they bleed acid, so it could be something as little as a paper cut, as demonstrated with the incision Ash gives the facehugger in the first film.

Jumping on board for this.  Looks interesting.  That girl looks like Lambert with the cart.
