Alien Beast with its mouth open.

The Alien Beast is one of the monsters held in The Facility. On the whiteboard, it was bet on by the Bio Medical Department.

Physical DescriptionEdit

This monster is of extraterrestrial origin. A "facehugger"-like creature, it appears to exude acidic yellow blood when shot.

It is possible that an alien egg summons it.

AppearancesEdit

It is first seen briefly leaping out of an elevator onto one of the security guards before killing him during the second wave of monsters in the Purge. In the novelization of the film, the Alien Beast appears during the scene where Dana and Marty are in the elevator right after seeing the Werewolf. The inclusion of the Alien Beast in the scene was apparently supposed to carry on into the film based on behind the scenes

footage and pictures, but never appeared in the final film.


InspirationEdit

The Alien Beast is likely an homage to the "facehugger" lifecycle stage of the Xenomorph in the Alien franchise, originally designed by H. R. Giger.

The Half-Life video game franchise also contains a similar creature, called a Headcrab.
