Ridley Scott's classic sci-fi horror hybrid, "Alien," might not immediately come to mind when thinking of fun menu planning, especially when recalling Kane's stomach-churning chestburster scene while the Nostromo crew was having a final meal before returning to cryosleep.

Nevertheless, London-based Titan Books is serving up a mouthwatering new cookbook themed to the "Alien" movies and franchise that might have you yearning for a hunger-stimulating hike around LV-426 before chowing down.

Written by Chris-Rachael Oseland, "Alien: The Official Cookbook" recently landed in stores with 144 pages aimed at terrifying your taste buds — and has a special exclusive preview of five killer dishes to die for.
