Extra points for telling me which novel the title comes from!

Rhino Alien

Shot does show why they intentionally kept the costume pretty much in flashes and darkness. The suit lacks the detail and psychosexual horror of the first one. Also far bulkier, which makes it look kind of like a guy in a gorilla suit. But Cameron coming from Corman, he managed to make janky into near perfect.


That was really interesting. I'm always fascinated hearing about to alien/predator suit performers. Wow, Mr. Toop beat out like a few hundred other performers for one of the most iconic monsters in Cinema history. Then he graciously bows out of Hollywood after the film is released. What a boss. Great podcast gentlemen.
