I like the otherworldly feel his art tends to convey and the details are immaculate

H.R. Giger, you indirectly made Sigourney Weaver most recognizable female badass of all time, for which we are thankful.

Does anyone else here think he looks a bit like Herbert Lom?

I watched Jodorowsky's Dune after reading several "movies that never were" articles, I will forever weep, that would have been the best movie of all time. Giger was a genius
