Factual error: Fitch, who professes qualifications in biology, genetics and biochemistry, says that they made Sil female because she's a natural predator and so she'd be more docile. He should retake his finals. In every single species of predator on earth - every single one - the females are the hunters, aggressors and killers. The males may be socially dominant but they are the 'docile' ones. There are no exceptions - and no human DNA was used to create Sil - they used synthetic DNA based on the instructions transmitted to them.
Trivia: Creature designer H.R. Giger personally financed the "nightmare train" sequence after the studio refused to fund it due to its high cost and short length. It reportedly cost him nearly $100,000 between paying for the props, the filmstock, the effects and the camera crew.
