Don’t mess with Ripley when she’s got the Alien flamethrower in the backyard


go ahead, click on the flame. You’ll singe your eyebrows

Somebody posted this photo on Reddit of Sigourney Weaver trying out the flamethrower from Alien on the backlot lawn of Shepperton Studios in 1978.

They didn’t wimp out with CG back then. This was the real deal. Notice no one is standing too close.

Director Ridley Scott’s decision not to fuck around at all was what made Alien one of the greatest horror movies of all time.

I recommend you watch it again tonight. Try the director’s cut, this time.

Or if you’re busy tonight, wait and watch it on the big screen—along with Aliens—as part of Cineplex’s Great Digital Film Festival, which runs from January 30 to February 5.
