The famous chestburster scene in Ridley Scott's "Alien" is one of the most terrifying in motion-picture history -- it's still hard to watch that one without breaking out in panicked sweats -- so why shouldn't a bunch of talented kids recreate it for internet laughs?
The precocious children behind "Kids Swede Movies" have tackled the famed scene, and their take manages to be both hilarious and also scarier than anything in "Prometheus," this summer's "Alien" prequel. (Sorry, Sir Ridley.) This isn't the first time "Kids Swede Movies" has reworked some adult-oriented fare: In addition to "Alien," the kids -- part of the We Don't Give A Frak group created by Joshua Sterling Bragg, Rachel Crouse and Matt Gielen -- have parodied "There Will Be Blood" and "The Big Lebowski," as well as "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."
Watch the kids' take on "Alien" above. Check out the rest of their growing oeuvre below. If you're feeling frisky, you can also watch the original scene from "Alien" by clicking here.
