Lots of werewolf knotting, though. Amanda : At least when this one went on forever, there was a wide variety of monster sex. Kelly : That is an excellent question. Those werewolves must have some powerful man jam. It not only knocks a lady up, it also transforms them! Amanda : And the cocks were all overwhelmingly large. Several of them were described as being the length of a forearm.
Yes, I did notice that, though. He was kinda… odd. Kelly : Yes, he did. He needed his lady friend docile so he could impale her on his monster manhood! Amanda : But he tied her up first. Kelly : Not going to lie, that was a little creepy. Amanda : Also, there was a mermaid sex reference.
Cathy arrives at Moonbeam, the Roswell of the North, with one goal—to prove the mysterious dead tree circles are not caused by UFOs. Meeting a devastatingly handsome lumberjack with unusual blue and green eyes is a bonus. She can tolerate a little crazy in a one-night stand, especially since Rellec claims her body as no sane man ever has—with the hungry touch of forever.
Rellec arrives at Moonbeam with one goal—to retrieve his assigned mate, ensuring the continuation of his species. Having trained long and hard for his erotic mission, he is determined to satisfy his tiny human female and overcome her objections with out-of-this-world passion.
And that makes me sad. Cathy was an okay character. The set-up was a little ridiculous but I generally like ridiculous. The random aliens showing up planet side were, umm, unexpected. The bottom line is that I never really connected to the characters or what they were going through enough to fully immerse myself in the story. Ridged aliens have ridges! Eric Drake, a powerful Dark Wolf, has never trusted himself around human females—preferring to mate only within his pack.
That is, until he encounters Chelsea Smart snooping around Silvercrest pack land in search of her missing sister. Guys, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was interesting. And good. And sexy. Eric and Chelsea have this thing going on. Inappropriate boners fix a lot of problems in my book. Probably not so much for the poor guy sporting them but, well, I enjoy them.
It all comes together to give me a smile. Is Ursula a monster, too? I think we were spoiled by C. Morning after is awkward. Kelly : Honestly, you summed that up pretty well. I was confused whether the dildo was a separate entity or if it was part of Ursula. Otherwise, Ursula basically fucked herself in the ass. Kelly : Good point. Amanda : Yeah, there were parts that read like a non-native speaker wrote it. Articles were missing or the wrong one was used.
To the point that I was watching for those mistakes more than I was paying attention to the story. Kelly : This story gave tentacles a bad name. I suggest we stick with C.

Breeding Amy: Aliens, Tentacles, Impregnation, Oh My! (What Amy Becomes)
Government alien space breeding gone awry and transforms humans into alien form. Now with a female there is forced breeding, tentacle sex, pregnancy and egg laying. To each their own. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. About Fiona Thompson. Fiona Thompson. Books by Fiona Thompson. Trivia About Breeding Amy: Ali No trivia or quizzes yet. Welcome back. When she was interviewed about Sir John Hurt, following his death on January 25, Sigourney Weaver stated that she had thought Sir John Hurt was really dying when they filmed the chestburster scene, and did not realize that he was acting when they filmed the sequence, and that the cast were not acting when the Alien comes out of Sir John Hurt's chest and runs off the table.
The reason for most of the movie having hand held shots was down to the close confines of the sets. Tracks and dolly movements were too fast or too wide, so were replaced with hand held instead. Originally to be directed by Walter Hill , but he pulled out and gave the job to Ridley Scott after being impressed by Scott's The Duellists Ridley Scott was so bored while waiting for the budget to be determined on this movie that in his spare time, he storyboarded the entire movie, and then sent it to the studio, where they were so impressed with his vision that they doubled the budget.
The incubation of the Alien has also been interpreted as a metaphor for pregnancy. Dame Helen Mirren auditioned for a role. A lawsuit by A. Originally, the crew was suppose to emerge from hypersleep completely naked, as can be seen in the storyboards. This was nixed due to concern about censorship in several markets. Some of the Nostromo's corridors were created from portions of scrapped bomber aircraft, and a mirror was used to create the illusion of longer corridors in the below-deck area. Veronica Cartwright had originally auditioned to play Ripley, but producers opted for Sigourney Weaver instead.
Weaver was initially more interested in playing Lambert because in the early screenplay, Lambert was written as a wise-cracking character. In later re-writes, the role of Lambert became much more subdued and serious, and was given to Cartwright. Unimpressed with the poor body cast mold made of Bolaji Badejo the actor cast to play the Alien , H.
Giger was prepared to suggest a replacement before he'd met Badejo. One of his suggestions was supermodel Verushka, who Giger described as just as tall as Badejo. Reportedly, Ridley Scott was open to the suggestion. When he finally met Badejo, Giger realized that he was perfect for the Alien role, and insisted that a new body cast be made.
An early draft of the script had a male Ripley, making this one of at least three movies where Sigourney Weaver played a character originally planned to be a man. Among some of the ingredients of the alien costume are Plasticine and Rolls-Royce engine parts. Giger's first attempt at an egg had the top with one long slit across it, when he presented it to Scott, the department head burst out laughing, as it looked far too much like a woman's vagina, the slit was duplicated at a ninety degree angle, to make it more like an "X", which satisfied everyone.
The vast majority of this movie was filmed using a handheld camera. Art director Roger Christian remarked in an interview that "Eighty percent of Alien was shot on Ridley's shoulder". Referring to the fact that Ridley Scott did all the hand held camera work himself. Three versions of the landing craft were built for the production: a twelve inch version for long shots, a forty-eight inch version for the landing sequence, and a seven ton rig for showing the ship at rest on the planet's surface. Ridley Scott and Jerry Goldsmith were at odds with each other on the usage of the original music score.
As a result, many crucial cues were either rescored, ill-placed, or deleted altogether, and the intended end title replaced with Howard Hanson 's "Symphony No. The original intended score was featured as an isolated track on the now out-of-print 20th Anniversary DVD. Originally, in the end lifeboat scene, the Alien was meant to be latched onto the ceiling of the vehicle until Ripley sees it, but Ridley Scott felt this was too similar to what happened with Brett, so it was changed. The decal on the door of the Nostromo is a "checkerboard square", the symbol on Purina's pet food label.
It's meant to designate "alien chow". The computer screen displaying Nostromo's orbit around the planet contains a hidden credit to Dr. Brian Wyvill , one of the programmers for the animation. Brian Wyvill's common nickname. Originally, the plan for the Alien's transparent head was for it to be filled with living maggots. For the Director's Cut of the movie, a deleted scene was restored where the Nostromo crew listens to the signal from the planet before landing.
This scene had already been available as a bonus feature on the first DVD edition of the movie. The sound they originally heard was quite scary and organic, almost sounding like an extremely deep, slowed-down voice. Kane's response "Good God! At the premiere of the movie, religious zealots set fire to the model of the Alien Xenomorph , believing it to be the work of the devil. Ridley Scott 's first exposure to early Alien drafts were sent to him by Sanford Lieberson , then head of Twentieth Century Fox's London headquarters. Lieberson had seen Scott's The Duellists and was adequately impressed to consider the neophyte filmmaker.
Dallas' pursuit of the Alien down the ventilator shafts, and the intercut scenes of the rest of the crew urging him on, were shot in one day. Harry Dean Stanton 's first words to Ridley Scott during his audition were "I don't like science fiction or monster movies. This trend seems to have come to an end as the new android character in Alien: Covenant is called Walter.
In this new movie, however, David is still to be a main character, and both he and Walter are portrayed by Michael Fassbender. There was discussion to include a lesbian relationship between Ripley and Lambert. Giger discovered that old designs were still being constructed by the art department, Giger spoke to production designer Brian Seymour, who told him he was aware things had changed, but to stop them mid construction would wreck morale, and they had to be kept busy until the new designs were ready to be built, and it was better to let them finish, then replace them.
When Giger asked what would happen to the old work, Seymour told him "scrapped". Giger was baffled at this strange economy of waste. The Alien murdering Brett was the first scene shot with the finalized Alien costume and mechanical head. Giger is quoted in his book that when he presented artwork to Ridley he didn't like, Ridley would nod thoughtfully and say, "interesting", which Giger translated as "shit". The Alien was to be transparent, until H. Giger's team began to run out of time. Following a disastrous failed cooking of the molds, the team decided, in a car park, that the Alien would be standard latex, as the production would suffer huge costs if they didn't meet the looming deadline.
When Sir John Hurt was being fitted up for his scene on the table, it was a long and complicated affair, and ultimately, he got somewhat bored. In the end, he asked the crew if he could have his cigarettes and a bottle of his favorite wine, which they poured for him. He was then happy and relaxed afterwards, with his creature comforts. The original wakening sequence started on Kane's nostril and then pulled back further and further to reveal him getting out of his cryotube.
Many of the non-English versions of the title translate as something similar to "Alien: The Eighth Passenger". Originally, the lighting plan for this movie was to have everything pre-lit, so they wouldn't have to rearrange lighting from shot to shot, but Ridley soon realized it was looking very television-ish, with an even all-round, fit-for-everything lighting plan.
Also, actors and actresses would wind up moving in parts of the set that weren't lit well enough, so they went back to normal lighting set-ups for each angle. The scene where the Alien enters the room and approaches Lambert was trimmed down and re-shot. Originally, it was filmed in wide shots, showing the full Alien as it approached Lambert while walking on all fours, belly-up. Ridley Scott felt it made the Xenomorph appear too human in configuration, so it was re-shot mainly with close-ups, and far less focus on the Alien. Ridley would always use Gigers Necronomicon book to explain the kind of designs he wanted to Giger, who was gratified, as he was using his own designs instead of having to copy another artist's strange designs.
Originally, only six eggs were to be present in the egg silo under the derelict ship, but Ridley Scott stepped in and demanded that many more were required. He states Almost this world could easily be the city Los Angeles "The City of Angels" that supports, the crew that go out in Alien. In other words, the crew of Alien comes back in, they may go into this place and go into a bar on a street near where Deckard lives.
That's how I thought about it. Carlo Rambaldi constructed three alien heads based on H. Giger 's designs: two mechanical models for use in various close-up work, and an elementary model for medium-to-long shots. Rambaldi was not available to operate his creations on the actual shoot, though he did spend two weeks in the U. While engineering sounding in name, fly agaric is actually a highly poisonous hallucinogenic mushroom, whose toxin used to be commonly used in flypaper. Bolaji Badejo worked approximately four months on this movie.
Parker and Lambert's original deaths involved the Alien killing Parker and using his body as a shield against Lambert's flamethrower, with the Alien stepping out of the flames towards her. Giger was asked by a Shepperton Studios manager if he would front the cost for frames for all of his paintings.
Giger refused, and instead offered to fly economy instead of first class on all of his flights, they complimented him on his head for business. Brett's hobby was building model clipper ships. Some can be seen behind him in his bridge station, and also in the engineering bays where he works. Ridley Scott originally conceived flying mice robots that, while the crew were in hypersleep, would zip around corridors repairing things. A crew of over two hundred workmen and technicians constructed the three principal sets: The surface of the alien planetoid, and the interiors of the Nostromo and derelict spacecraft.
Tons of sand, plaster, fiberglass, rock, and gravel were shipped into the studio to sculpt a desert landscape for the planetoid's surface, which the actors and actresses would walk across wearing space suit costumes. One of the working titles was "They Bite". Lambert had a death involving her getting sucked through a tiny hole into space in the airlock sequence. This would be used for the newborn's death in Alien: Resurrection The hole to the egg chamber was originally planned to have an organic membrane covering it that Kane cuts through with a knife.
Cinematographer Derek Van Lint found the lighting issues on the Alien, the monitors, LEDs, fluorescents, and standard incandescent lights, all had various color temperatures, so getting them to match on camera, was an enormous technical challenge. Certain versions of the end credits reference the U. Although this would most obviously be considered as referring to the use of milk during a certain scene with Ash, there is another more subtle reason.
At the time of production in the U. These were transported in crates. These same milk crates were used within the set design as both certain floor and wall elements, in particular in corridors. Sigourney Weaver was the last actor or actress to be cast. Part of her audition was shot on the movie's sets which were in the process of being built. She had to rush to her audition due to traffic, and her flushed appearance helped convince the makers that she would be a good candidate for Ripley. Mirrors were used to make the Nostromo's corridors look bigger.
As of , Sigourney Weaver is the only cast member in the main cast to work with Ridley Scott more than once: in this movie, - paratiisin valloitus , and Exodus: Gods and Kings Dan O'Bannon and H. Giger were heavily inspired by the works of H. Lovecraft in their concept of the Alien. Especially Lovecraft's stories featuring the Cthulhu monster are said to have been particularly influential.
Cthulhu is described as a giant, vaguely anthropoid creature with tentacles, chained in a submerged ruin on the bottom of the sea. Although it is hardly ever seen, its escape from imprisonment is a constant source of dread for mankind. Although never stated on film, the planetoid where the Nostromo lands and finds the derelict ship is named "Acheron" in several drafts of the screenplay. In Greek mythology, Acheron is the "stream of woe", a branch of the river Styx which separates the underworld from the world of the living. The screenplay of Aliens also mentioned the name "Acheron", but refers to the planetoid with the technical name LV on-screen.
Both names have subsequently been used in expanded-universe media such as games and comics. A green monitor, visible behind Ripley while the crew discusses Kane's condition outside the kitchen, displays nonsense characters, as well as the word "Giler", a nod to producer David Giler. The producers of It! The Terror from Beyond Space considered suing for plagiarism, but didn't.
Ash and Dallas originally attempted to remove the facehugger from Kane inside the Autodoc using little robotic manipulator arms to cut it free. Giger met with monster maker Roger Dicken. Giger was warned he was a prickly character by Scott, and not to criticize his work. Giger was horrified when Dickens confessed he found Gigers work repulsive abortions, and the creature should be beautiful.
In a blind rage, Giger told Scott and Carroll he would do the monster work himself. The studio agreed, but only if he focused on the main Alien and left the other creations to Dicken. Roger Christian used scrap metal and parts to create set pieces and props to save money, a technique he employed while working on Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope It was rumored that when the movie premiered on the ITV network in the U.
However, this scene is not amongst the deleted scenes in the special features on the DVD. The early screenplay by Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett contained the Alien, the derelict ship, the Space Jockey, but also an ancient pyramid-like structure on the planet's surface full of alien eggs more shaped like canisters , where the crew of the Nostromo was to encounter the facehugger. The notion was that the pyramid, eggs, facehuggers, and Alien would all be indigenous to the planet. The derelict ship had once landed on the planet and its pilot, the Space Jockey, had become an unfortunate victim of the facehugger.
The pyramid was written out due to budget concerns in subsequent versions, and merged with the derelict ship. Predator and in Prometheus Ridley Scott 's plan for Kane entering the egg chamber, originally involved him entering through the ceiling and landing on the blue laser "placenta", which caused a faint breeze, as air was released. The space around Kane would be pitch dark, so Kane would activate hundreds of little lights on his space suit like a Christmas tree, which would illuminate the area. Peter Beale, one of the Fox executives argued with Giger over his fee, which Giger saw as insulting, and the same money paid to a high grade secretary working in Switzerland, Gordon Carrol fought in Giger's corner, in a discussion that lasted three hours.
Ridley suggested for the Alien they could strap two kids to an adult, and have them wrapped in rubber. Also, they proposed trying a robotic alien, but safety was an issue with that. When the script was originally optioned, Robert Altman was first choice to direct with Ridley Scott as the fifth choice. The original script by Dan O'Bannon went by the title "Memory".
It was then changed to "Star Beast", and ultimately, "Alien". In order to heighten the sense of claustrophobia for the actors and actresses, director Ridley Scott had the walls of the sets pushed slightly closer to each other every day. Special effects supervisors Brian Johnson and Nick Allder who ended up winning Oscars for their work in this movie made many of the set pieces and props function, including moving chairs, computer monitors, motion trackers, and flamethrowers.
The wiring revealed when the android Ash Sir Ian Holm is decapitated includes several Foley catheters urologic bladder drainage tubes with balloons inflated. After the airlock sequence, the crew were meant to be moving through the ship in their space suits, as much of the ship's atmosphere was lost in the airlock scene.
Jon Finch was originally cast as Kane, and had reportedly filmed a few initial scenes. However, while filming, Finch fell ill and left the production, to be replaced by Sir John Hurt. According to Tom Skerritt , Finch's work on the movie was so brief that he doesn't remember meeting him.
Finch worked with Ridley Scott on Kingdom of Heaven Carlo Rambaldi 's original alien face is now on display at the Smithsonian. The first R-rated movie to receive a tie-in series of toys marketed towards children. The process of preparing to make this movie ended up having a major impact on another violent, shocking, R-rated movie, The Warriors Walter Hill and David Giler were watching an Israel-set movie called Madman , because they had heard positive notice on Sigourney Weaver's performance, and wanted to see if she was a good fit for the role of Ripley.
Of course, it turned out that she was, but Hill found himself very impressed by the supporting work in Madman , of an unknown actor named Michael Beck, and he thought Beck could be a good fit for a major role in The Warriors He called Beck to come in and read for the part of gang leader Swan, and Beck nailed the audition, and was immediately cast. The Space Jockey's body was painted with Sepia glaze, and then coated with frayed rubber latex. Filmed over a period of fourteen weeks in the U.
Editing and post-production took an additional twenty weeks. Director Ridley Scott said that he often imagined Ash Sir Ian Holm being awake during much of the Nostromo's journey while the rest of the crew was in cryo, secretly communicating with the Company. He would be getting back in cryo shortly before the rest awoke, to avoid raising suspicions. This idea was later used for the android David Michael Fassbender Prometheus Yaphet Kotto was sent a script, off the back of his recent success with Live and Let Die , although it took some time and deliberation between Kotto and his agent before he was offered the part.
This movie is included on Roger Ebert 's "Great Movies" list. Kay Lenz auditioned for the role of Ripley. While walking towards the derelict ship, the storm around them obscured their vision, so Lambert's helmet gave her a heads-up display, mounted on a visor inside her helmet, which showed a 3-D topographical map rendering of the environment around her, so she could see where she was going.
The original Panaglide SteadiCam system was suggested for this movie, but with neither RIdley nor Derek Vanlint familiar with the format, they decided against using it, so they could operate cameras on the film themselves, and not rely on outside technicians. Although this movie was given the "18" certificate in the U. It was given the "M" rating in Australia. Included amongst the American Film Institute's list of the four hundred movies nominated for the Top Greatest American Movies. In the scene where Ash and Dallas are examining the facehugger for a way to remove it from Kane, they are both wearing what are obviously intended to be protective masks.
The masks have "nipples" at the bottom which are obviously intended for connection to oxygen lines, but they are attached to nothing. The alien nest lair is flanked by walls that have portals with a distinct "vaginal" similarities. Some have noted that the "facehugger" appears to be a fusion of male and female sex organs, most predominantly female. Swiss painter H. Giger 's artwork is often interpreted as being overtly sexual in nature. Nostromo's identification number is Giger was appalled at the failed translation of his ideas in England, and stayed only to keep things on track with his designs.
The first test screening of the movie was hampered by sound issues and only got a lukewarm reception, but by the second screening, the makers had their first indication that the movie was as scary as they had hoped. Several of the crew members later attended screenings where audience responses surpassed their wildest predictions, ranging from people running from their seats and requesting places farther away from the screen, people yelling at the characters not to do certain things, cinema personnel passing out, and restrooms littered with vomit.
One of the making-of books suggests that the alien did not outsmart Ripley by following her into the lifeboat to kill her, but rather was looking for a quiet spot in which to die.
The Space Jockey couldn't be constructed on the real scale, because it would have been too expensive, so they did it on a smaller scale, so that children would be in suits to make it look like the real scale. One common story is that "Weyland" and "Yutani" were the names of two of Ridley Scott 's neighbors whom he didn't like. However, this isn't the case. Ron Cobb , the designer of the movie, came up with the name "Weylan-Yutani". I wanted to imply that poor old England is back on its feet, and has united with the Japanese, who have taken over the building of spaceships the same way they have now with cars and supertankers.
In coming up with a strange company name, I thought of British Leyland and Toyota, but we couldn't use 'Leyland-Toyota' in the film. Changing one letter gave me 'Weylan', and 'Yutani' was a Japanese neighbor of mine. Despite many fans calling the creature asexual, or referring to the creature as "it", the Alien is heavily implied to be male. In fact, when fans and the cast refer to the creature by its gender, they always say "he" or "him". Initially, H.

Giger's derelict ship was accepted, and then rejected, in a tense meeting with the Twentieth Century Fox team and director Ridley Scott, they were concerned the bone-like shape would blend into the already bone-like environment. Giger believed his friends Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett were behind the idea, and tried to argue his case that the biomechanical nature of the ship would separate it from the background, until Gordon Carrol ordered him to create something new. Ridley remained quiet in the discussion, drawing a standard plane like fin sticking out of the ground in silent opposition.
Two months later, Giger returned to the U. When this movie won in the category for "Best Effects, Visual Effects" the presenters were Farrah Fawcett and amputee Oscar-winner Harold Russell who opened the envelope with his prosthetic hook hands April 14, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Some of the sets for the Nostromo were barely tall enough for the 6'4" Yaphet Kotto.
Throughout the movie, he has to stoop through doors and lower his head in certain hallways. When Kane has the facehugger on him, and is in the x-ray machine, Ash says, "We don't know anything about", and pauses and says "it", a possible nod to It! The Terror from Beyond Space The Alien franchise was produced by Brandywine Productions.
The Brandywine river is found in J. Tolkien's Middle Earth universe. After news and video of the production went viral, the club scheduled additional performances. The club had previously staged a version of Night of the Living Dead The teaser trailer which uses stills from the movie was narrated by Percy Rodrigues. After the key reveal scene with Ash, the three crew members then start to walk through a corridor.

This low angle shot shows that the ceiling for this part of the corridor was made of the bottoms of milk bottle crates. During the self-destruct sequence, the strobing lighting creates a strange effect on the visuals akin to a slow motion blur. This is likely to be a workaround due an unavoidable consequence of digital video formats using in-between key frames, rather than analogue video, and the original film stock recording every frame. This similar visual issue has appeared in other movies, which is usually only obvious if you saw them on analogue formats.
Six years later, when James Cameron fell out with cinematographer Dick Pope on Aliens and fired him, he hired Biddle who had never photographed a feature film before to take over as DOP. Jason regretfully turned down the role due to conflicting schedules. He was busy filming the first season of the enormously popular Only Fools and Horses The film was inspired by George Lucas ' success with Star Wars, and Alien turned out to be a great success that followed a winning streak of high-concept science fiction blockbusters from Hollywood in the 70s: ranging from A Clockwork Orange to Superman A simple egg was used for the lobby poster.
The reason why the interior of the alien ship looked like bones is that artist H. Giger wanted his paintings to look like an abattoir of cattle bones. Apparently he had just seen her onstage and recommended her wholeheartedly to producer David Giler. Some people have even called Alien a Texas Chainsaw Massacre in space. Rosemary's Baby plays on women's fears about Rape and unwanted pregnancy.
