In honor of Alien Day, I wrote up a little something about my first exposure to the Alien franchise. The first of the movies I saw was Alien 3, in theaters with my Dad... but I was hooked on Alien years before 3 was released.
Aside from the out of place vulgarity, I was captivated by the images on the small screen. The scene was terrifying, a tough looking lady in a robot suit traded blows with what looked like a giant spider-dinosaur. I couldn't focus on anything else until the giant black bug got sucked out of the airlock into the black void of space and the clip ended.
When I looked up from the tiny television, I saw my horror made flesh. Both the full size Alien Queen puppet and the Power Loader props were towering over me, frozen in eternal combat, a clothed mannequin in place of Ripley. I stood in awe, enraptured for what seemed like hours, but it was probably just a good ten minutes before my Dad and I made our way through the rest of the exhibit, left to grab some dinner at Crocodile Cafe then made our way home.
I feel like some part of me is still standing there, looking up in terror-stricken astonishment.
