The promo mill is going roundly for Alien: Covenant, with 20th Century Fox releasing a tense new clip featuring the classic facehugger.

The short scene below sees Demian Bichir’s character of Lope getting up close and personal (and I mean in-your-face close, you guys) with the iconic facehugger from all those Alien movies. As Bichir and his friend grapple with it, they manage to pull the creature off, but not before he gets acid on his face.

If you think the clip is stressful, Bloody-Disgusting says that the scene is actually longer in the movie and that it’s been edited for the wonderful world of the Internet. Also, the way the clip ends, it looks like the facehugger won’t have any problem finding another victim … which is brilliant for us but not so much for the other dude. Check it out and chime in with your thoughts.

Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Alex England, Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and James Franco, Alien: Covenant opens in theaters on May 19.
