In the third act of the film Ripley makes it a point to recover Jones the Cat to evacuate him with her before the ship self-destructs. There's a moment of suspense when she has to abandon him when she catches sight of the monster but ultimately she gets herself and Jones off the ship. He's sleeping peacefully in her lap in the final scene.

Not necessarily abuse, but Jones’ cage is flung by the alien and then thrown around a bit by Ripley during her escape. Can make cat owners uncomfortable.

Not a single horse in this movie. I don't know what the Yes-voter is thinking.

The crew's attempts to remove an alien parasite latched onto a crew member's face involve a number of close-ups of the creature, showing it in full detail. The prop, made of various seafood bits among other things, is realistic-looking and may be unnerving for some.

There are NO dragons or anything dragon-like in this film. (Did someone just go down the line pressing "yes" for everything!?)

Most of the movie is spent with the characters being hunted by the titular Alien, being found and then killed, which while not quite stalking, could be potentially triggering

There is some deception that could be triggering, but mainly Ripley is brushed off.

You can't have child abuse in a movie if there are no children in the movie.

Ripley is attacked and is pinned down by another crewmate and he tries to shove a magazine down her throat. Can be very disturbing.

It’s implied that the alien penetrates a crewmember vaginally with its tail, but it happens off screen

The android is burned and you see his flesh melting off. Pretty graphic and gross.

An android's head is squashed and knocked off of his body. His white "blood" is very visible and gets everywhere. A pretty gross scene.

Somebody's body discovery is indicated by hanging/swinging feet, but it is not suicide, and doesn't involve any rope or choking.

The alien is shown falling out of the space shuttle to its death. More of a blown into space scene than a typical falling scene.

Well gee, the cover's only used as the emblem for jumpscares... In all seriousness, the Facehugger leaps from its egg violently, and Davis is attacked by the Alien suddenly when searching the airvents.

As spoiler free as possible: a character attacks Ripley. At first his sweat looks weirdly white. As he is trying to suffocate her other characters come in to stop him and hit him. He starts to spew white fluid of his mouth a little bit. Later when the crew wakes him back up the same white fluid leaks out of his mouth before he is able to talk.

Cain is placed in Sickbay when the Facehugger attacks him. There is also an endoscopy (a camera inserted into the stomach) video shown.

Assisted suicide in the 2003 edition (the director's cut), but not in the original.

I‘d say it could be triggering that Lambert panicks all the time, especially when the Xenomorph is in front of her before she dies

The alien Chestburster is possibly triggering.

Not a woman, but a man has a chest burster kill him, almost like child birth, could be triggering

If you count 'having an extraterrestrial larvae gnaw its way out of your chest cavity' to be 'giving birth,' then yes, there is a birthing scene.

Lambert is trans! This is not addressed in the script other than in a brief view of her personnel file.

There is no literal sexual assault, but there are enough horrific metaphorical allusions to it that a sexual assault survivor would probably have their trauma triggered. Phallic objects being forcibly shoved down throats is a recurring element.

People awaken from, & enter the hibernation pods in their underwear. No sexy lingerie, undershirts, boxers, Sigourney Weaver at end in basic bikini pants.

Not a typical "mushroom cloud" type explosion, but there is a massive (easily nuke-sized, if not bigger) explosion that occurs in space.

The film's Signature Scene involves a parasitoidic alien larva gnawing its way out of a man's chest cavity.
