  1. It was a very interesting and thought-provoking podcast! I never thought that the dead body at the beginning of the movie was the previous alien. Perhaps the filmmakers are trying to make the point that being a female human is a difficult and deadly task?

      Funny you should say that – I also didn’t think the woman at the beginning was another alien being until I read other reviews and discussed it with Alex. I actually thought it was a random human woman they kidnapped in order to replicate her form or something.
