The second stage of the Xenomorph and perhaps the most terrifying. Known for wrapping its eight limbs around its victim’s face and the tail around their neck to ensure a firm grip, the Facehugger is impossible to remove once attached.  Planting this on your doorstep this Halloween will surely keep the trick-or-treaters away long enough to enjoy your evening… that’s if it doesn’t grow into the last stage Xenomorph.

A slightly cutesy take on an otherwise terrifying creature. The Xenomorph is relentless and practically unstoppable. This cute interpretation might melt your heart this Halloween, but should it grow into the full-size alien, it’s already too late.
