12 Nightmarish Sci-Fi Movie Scenes That Freaked You Out
The first of a couple of moments in the Alien franchise on this list (it was too hard to pick one), this particular scene takes the concept of childbirth and delivers it in a whole new terrifying light.
In Prometheus, scientist Elizabeth Shaw is unknowingly infected with a liquid toxin, in turn causing a parasite to grow inside her stomach. It's an early version of the iconic Xenomorph in the original film, so as an audience we all know what's coming.
The horror doesn't end there though, as Shaw puts herself into a robotic incubator which cuts open her stomach to deliver the squid-like creature, which then tries to attack her as soon as it's out of the womb. It's then a battle against time as Shaw tries to exit the incubator before the alien can kill her.
Seriously, if this doesn't put you off having children for life, nothing will.
