Watch An Effects Studio Turn a Dog Into An ‘Alien3’ Xenomorph!

studioADI takes us back to 1991 with this awesome behind-the-scenes videos from their workshop in UK’s Pinewood Studios.

The never-before-seen footage shows an effects team member dressing a whippet into the “Runner” Xenomorph used in David Fincher‘s problematic Alien3.

The Runner, also known as the Dog Alien or Ox Alien, is an adult form of the species Xenomorph XX121 spawned from a quadrupedal host animal (such as a dog).

The costume doesn’t look very comfortable; I can only hope they gave the dog a whole lot of treats!

    This made my day

  • I had no idea they used an actual dog. The more you know.

      they did not, it was an idea that was discarded because it looked ridiculous heh

    I didn’t know they used an actual animal but as a dog owner I can’t say that I’m impressed as that dog looks uncomfortable and terrified even.

    They better have gave this dog steak for having to endure this, not to mention all his hard work went down the drains since Alien3 was an absolute let down.

    Cool! Although I must say that dog looks absolutely terrified! It’s saying “get this motherfucking thing off of me now!”

    I can’t believe this wasn’t made by a bunch of art students, stoned on weed and rolling around in tears of laughter as they did it.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    That’d be the best prank ever. Imagine unleashing that dog on unsuspecting fans at a haunt or convention. Just not the streets…… as everyone would see this creature doesn’t really have acid for blood.

    I guess this dog’s ready to go to canine comic con.
