E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is a timeless classic and a staple movie for anyone to watch while growing up.

The scene is one of the more shocking scenes in the film franchise, not to mention one of the most memorable in the sci-fi genre.

The Chestbuster alien costume would require the use of a prop, a feature some people may not want to commit to for a Halloween costume.
