Ok, anyway, the rape scene is what stands out for me in that film because i woulod never had thought that the alien would do something like that, at the age of 4 your mind wanders after that.

 Was this scene actually confirmed to be a "rape" scene, or was it just something someone thought it to be? I mean I understand that Geiger is crazy with his art, and all, but to actually call it a "rape" scene doesnt really hold any confirmation for me.
 Yes, the tail is between her legs, and she is "hanging" from something after they show her death, but that does not constitute a "rape" scene in my eyes. Maybe the ALIEN picked her up with its tail, and killed her in a manor they didnt show. :-\

I'm listening to the commentary right now, and he rather vividly said that in his own mind the rape was due to the Alien's ravenous desire to reproduce. So, while we might call it rape, it was intended to show the creature spreading its seed and making the destruction of the Nostromo a must on Ripley's part.

This has been discussed ad nauseum, though for the life of me I can't find an existing thread.

I think part of what it did echoed Brett's original death where the Alien spears its tail into the back.  But that's probably only part of it.  Things like that are best left off screen.  The reality would probably be a lot more mundane than something your imagination could dream up.

It was raping Lambert. This is true. As much as it sounds made up, it infact is what it did. You even see her feet hanging, naked at the part Ripley sees their dead bodies. I actually liked the idea of the rape scene. Sick and twisted. I know. ;D
