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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

Dallas was captured by the alien and asks her to kill him towards the end of the movie, she uses the flamethrower to do it. You do not see him get burned but you know it happens

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

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

There are multiple violent murders including an infamous “chestburster” scene in which an alien rips apart a character’s ribcage while leaving his body. There is a lot of blood.

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.

There cannot be 9/11 depictions if 9/11 hadn’t happened yet. Aka, if the movie was released before 9/11, 2001.

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

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.

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