So I was researching on how to make proper effects when filming when I came upon these good tips! I hope these could be of help to you as well:
Airplane engine, flying (WW2 style)
Get some of the larger fan types into your studio and record different speeds and power up/downs, close miked. You’ll have to add some distortion and remove some of the lower end depending on the type of fan used.

Alien egg sacks
A good one for alien egg sacks contracting and expanding is breathing softly into a styrofoam cup while pressing it in and out.

Alien pod embryo expulsions etc.
Certain kinds of canned dog food make useful sounds as the food comes out of the can. The chunky stuff isn’t so good, but the tightly packed all-one-mass kind makes gushy sucking sounds when the air on the outside of the can is sucked into the can to replace the exiting glob of dog food. This sound can be used as an element in certain kinds of monster vocalizations, alien pod embryo expulsions, etc.

Use a thin bamboo stick, such as the type used to hold up plants in a garden. Whip it past the microphone.

I used an umbrella opening and closing rapidly for the sound of bats flying one time… turned out great. I think I had to filter out some of the low frequency material, though.
Blood and guts being torn out
I know how to make a nice sound of blood and guts being torn out. Just make a milk pulp and put it into your mouth, and they try to say “Ghhhh”. Mix it with the end section of any splash water sample or add a sample where you’re moving out your hand from the barrel of water
Blood rushing in veins
For the blood sound I use the sound of a sponge that I squeeze into water (with a hydrophone) to make the air come out, then I pitch down a bit. I would also add white noise under it to give it a bit of high.

Try putting a microphone into your mouth. You will get a nice low end sounding like blood. You will have to try to avoid making clicking sounds with your mouth.
