Few behind the scenes photos are cooler than Sigourney Weaver testing the “Alien” flamethrower. The flamethrower, also known as the “incinerator unit,” is an iconic prop from the Alien franchise.

The flamethrower was first used by Dallas and Parker before Weaver’s Ripley picked it up while escaping. However, in the directors cut, Ripley discovers Dallas and Brett still alive. The pair were turning into the alien’s eggs and beg to be killed. Ripley uses the flamethrower to incinerate Dallas and Brett.

In the photo above, Weaver practices using the flamethrower on the back lot of Shepperton Studios. Dressed in full costume Weaver is surely having a blast.

Production designer, Roger Christian created the iconic prop. Christian picked up an Academy Award nomination for his work on the film. Christian’s other credits include “Star Wars” for which he won the Oscar for Best Art Direction.
