200 years after her death, Ellen Ripley is revived as a powerful human/alien hybrid clone who must continue her battle against the aliens. Along with a crew of space pirates, Ripley must also prevent the deadly aliens from reaching Earth.
In the theatrical release, H.R. Giger is not credited for his part in the design of the Aliens. The video release has his name in the closing credits.
My mommy always said there were no monsters. No real ones. But there are.
(at around 1h 27 mins) When Ripley awakens in the Alien nest, the shot opens with one of the scientists speaking about evolution. Despite the speech delivered in his voice, the actor seems to just be making random movements with his mouth, as if he is literally saying "Blah blah blah".
Many of the creature effects casting and mold making crew. Some long standing, heavily contributing members, were omitted from the credits. Supposedly due to budget concerns.
