Films: Deep Space (1988)
Location: Civilized area
Height/Weight: Twice that of an average human.
Summary: It doesn't get any more Xeno-knock-off-ey than just going all the way and copying the design, right down to the head shape. But hey, we gave it more exaggerated parts, so we're all cool, right?
History: A while ago, a space station crashed near Los Angeles. But it was carrying some rather dangerous cargo. An egg containing a biological super-weapon was in it. After being brought into human arms, the egg hatches, and as it grows (not before the obligatory chest-bursting), it amasses quite a body count.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: The grown creature is finally confronted in a warehouse, where it gets its head lopped off by a chainsaw.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-This thing looks like what would happen if the Xenomorph Queen was designed by someone with half the budget and double the crystal meth. Big teeth, a mouth on its belly, and whole bunch of other limbs on it make it out to be a rather unsettling sight.
Trivia: -It’s "Alien" on Earth, alright. For God's sake, the theme of "Aliens" plays near the end of the trailer!
-This film is known in France as "L'invasion des cocoons", which translates to "The Cocoon Invasion".
