Boy freaks out as he watches the Alien ‘chest burster’ scene

The chest burster scene from the film Alien is considered one of the most iconic of all time.

But as this innocent school boy watches it for the first time he hasn’t the faintest idea what he’s got himself in for.

As the late John Hurt’s character Executive Kane writhes around in pain, the boy is seen lying placidly on the sofa.

But as blood starts pouring from his chest, splattering his spaceship colleagues, the youngster is unable to hide his disgust.

The boy, who is being filmed by his parents in North Hempstead, New York, sits up, drawing his hand to his face and fidgeting wildly with discomfort.

But as the tiny, blood-soaked alien emerges from Kane’s chest, the boy cannot take it anymore, his face contorting in horror.

His adorable reaction is: ‘Oh dear, I think he’s dead!’ as his parents chuckle away in the background.

Posting the clip on social media, his mother wrote: ‘I had been looking forward to watching the Alien films with my son for a long time.

‘Since he’s now the age I was when I first saw Alien and Aliens, I thought it would be a great time. 

‘I wondered whether the practical effects from 1979 would still hold up in the era of gratuitous CGI, so I decided to capture his reaction to the iconic chest burster scene on video. Did not disappoint!’

The 1979 science fiction film was directed by Ridley Scott and received multiple awards for its cutting edge visual effects.

But today, in an age of multi-million pound Hollywood budgets, the scenes appear dated and somewhat over-the-top.

The story still resonates with audiences, telling the tale of the spaceship Nostromo, which gets diverted on a return trip back to earth with disastrous consequences.
