Having just watched this again, I enjoyed it far more second time around.
It's not especially nuanced or clever, but it is entertaining. As someone else said, at least one of these shorts had to go for the straightforward, Alien-stalks-people-and-kills them route. And I still got a good, macabre laugh out of the conclusion.
Other than doubling down on the mad robots, it makes for a nice companion to Alone because it's the polar opposite in terms of style and tone.
Anyone have any idea who the "Laurel Tooms" character is supposed to be? She's listed in the credits but I only see four in the film (plus the Alien).
Having watched Harvest recently, I think the android thing lets it down ny being too over the top. I mean seriously, smiling and having the "yes I am evil" facial expressions? that was a minus for me personally. It would have been better if the synthetics face was expressionless, apathetic rather malevolent.
The other thing that let it down was the facehugger effects too, it could have better done as a practical effect and it would not be too hard me thinks as you can get all sorts of alien merchandise online these days.
Other than that it was one the ones that I enjoyed better and it was good to see more of the adult alien. The sets were great as well.
Interestingly, the actress who plays Hannah is Jessica Clark, an actress who has had some major roles in mainstream media, namely as Lilith in season five and six of True Blood. I am not sure if there is any other known actors in these shorts, other than the woman who played Lorraine in Ore. Makes me wonder how they got her, did use most of the budget to hire her or did she do it for same amount as the other actors?
