Alien - Lambert’s Demise

Preparing to leave the Nostromo for the safety of the shuttle, Lambert and Parker gather everything they will need for the long journey back to Earth

Whilst Parker is occupied elsewhere something huge unfurls itself behind Lambert. Parker can’t use the flamethrower so in a desperate rage he throws himself at the alien. It spins about and pins him to the wall, killing him instantly with a stab from its inner jaws. Its attention then turns back towards Lambert as it glides ghost-like towards her...
