1997's Alien: Resurrection is a bit of a sparking lightning rod in the sci-fi community, eliciting vocal opinions on both sides of the screen, with most fans showing their disgust with its confusing clone story aboard a military weapons installation and the fact that it shares little continuity with the preceding movies.
But there is a growing group of admirers, myself included, who revel in its outrageous, in-your-face imagery, cannibal xenomorphs that swim, an alien hybrid Ripley, scene-munching Ron Perlman and Brad Dourif, robo Winona Ryder and one "beautiful, beautiful baby" monster sucked out a window like putrid jello. What's not to love? Directed with a grim, glossy Euro style and zero apologies by French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the film featured a laboratory housing a mad scientist's test-cylinder collection of alien/human Ripley clones in various shocking stages of evolution.
Here's an awesome SFX video from studioADI retracing all the steps and stages that went into developing their unsettling Ripley Clones 1-6.
Aim your flamethrower nozzle and take a peek inside the nightmarish nursery.
