Comments: I think that Fox have behaved reprehensibly and should roll over and bow to the master. Anybody with half a braincell knows that Alien=HRGiger - fullstop. I will boycott this movie until the matter is rectified and Herr Giger is given the credit that is due to him - I would urge other's who are into Giger do the same - it is the least we can do for this man who has taught us so much about ourselves through his Art.

Comments: Their has been no alien produce that does not resimble H.R. Gigiger original Alien. Take alook at the aliens in independance day, those aliens, and thier ships had a striking resemblance to Aliens. I think the movie industry should bow down to the man who made aliens aliens, and are worst nightmares take form. H.R. Gigiger, the world owes you.

Comments: Giger's Alien is my favorite monster. The Alien in "Alien: Resurrection" is clearly HR Giger's. Just as the world has car designers; the world has monster designers. Does Ford design a car that looks exactly like a Mercedes right down to the logo? Don't fight this in court, Fox. Render unto Caesar that which Caesar's and render unto a wonderful monster designer that which is his'n. Why not fire the lawyers and do the right thing, Fox? We all have a sense of what is fair. Gosh, maybe making copies of Fox tapes and selling 'em cheap is fair ... Giger knows what's fair. I don't think he's asking for more than you can afford. Talk to him. God help us if a sense of fair play disappears from the American "culture." P.S. (1) Alien I was the best. (2) Alien II was good. (3) Alien III was yawn. (4) Alien IV caught the creative spirit of Alien I and was almost "too scary."

Comments: H.R. Giger is magnificent in his creative work. The original ALIEN couldn't have been good without the work of the splendid artist. I have the ALIEN RESURRECTION script and it was just awsome! But the movie was pretty good. There were a lot of scenes taken out, plus the part I was looking forward to was the scene introducing the Newborn was nothing compared to what I have read. I was on the edge of my seat reading that part over and over. In the script, the newborn was a dangerous of all the others and had a awsome ending. But in the movie, the newborn was like Ripley's dog. If the movie was to follow the script, and if you designed the newborn-as it was described in the script- I believe ALIEN RESURRECTION would of gotten far much better complements than what has been released. I guarantee it!!!! I'm sure everyone is aganst the fact that 20th Century Fox has not asked you to return to work on the second and fourth ALIEN films. The third I could understand. There wasn't much to do like the original. Only the chestburster, adult alien, facehugger, and the alien skin are all created by you. Those two effect creators- Tom Woodruff and Alec Gilles Jr. are better off creating special effects than intimidating you. Remember that you the one that creates. Let no one else do that for you. You are the most phenomenal artist of all!!!!!!!!!! Well, I guess I said enough now. I would say more but maybe next time! Charles Olsen

Comments: Herr Giger...I am hanging my head in shame. In addition to not knowing that my favorite artist had such a fabulous web site, I was also unaware of the controversy surrounding the 4th installment in the Alien storyline. Had I known, I wouldn't have gone to see this abomination. I intend to tell everyone I see about this... All of this controversy notwithstanding, Alien Resurrection was a thouroughly predictable piece of cinematic excrement. The fact that Herr Giger's name was not mentioned in the credits is an unspeakable crime...but to steal the work of this visionary artist and then use it for such a bad movie is unpardonable. Fox, you should be ashamed.

The fact that he was not credited with it anyway is as an unforgivable insult and a slap in the face to a much deserving and artistic genius.Mr. Giger has every right to be outraged at Fox's complete ignorance of giving credit where credit is due.

Comments: Having followed Giger closely since my graphic design degree three years ago at which time i completed my dissertation on the subject of his career. I can say without a shadow of doubt, being in full possesssion of the facts that Hans Giger has become a victim of the mighty hollywood machine grabbing a successful idea and making it their own. There have been a plethora of cases in the past of hollywoods disregard for original concepts in order to make a quick buck. However due to their power now, this case is by far the most blatent. The creatures in both alien 3 and 4 are by any educated eye far more accurate to Gigers original concept than ever before and yet he recieves less and less credit on every new release. I will no doubt comment again but I've got to get back to work. anyway keep up the good work. S. Bromfield

Comments: When H.R. Giger first denied any connection with "Alien - Resurrection"

I was puzzled. After witnessing the movie , I understand.

Herr Giger was right to remove himself from being associated with such a dismal movie. A respected artist like Herr Giger should have, at least, the right to choose how his art will be used comercially.

The movie was pitiful(sp?). Herr Giger's Alien design made the first two movies ( I was unimpressed with the third, actually).

Alien Resurection had a good premis. It is unfortunate that it failed to live up to the vision of it's authors.

Comments: If FOX does not gives Mr. Giger credit as creator of Alien, then they are opening a very ugly door: one which can lead to supposse that piracy, while not legal, is made legal by large corporotions. So, I think they cannot blame anyone who takes an image from any of their films for his own purposes. Very, very bad from you FOX. I think the cinema mogul owes a very LARGE apology to Mr. Giger.

Comments: It is not to late for H.R Giger's name to be added to the Credits of the Home version of Alien Resurrection. I would also like to ask "HAS GIGER"S NAME BEEN ADDED TO ANY OF THE FOX INTERACTIVE VIDEO GAMES ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!......." I personaly like the Alien Desings more than any other movie monster, but this Newborn (?!?!) is a piece af shit! Even the Alien Queen (Desinged by stan Winston) was at least respectfull of H.R Giger's Desing, and I actualy did like the queen desing. Fox has been screwing every alien movie after the original in one way or another. In ALIENS although a fan favorite the aliens themselves looked the worst, they had ribed flaky heads and spindly legs and they died to easily, Even the Queen was crusted with yellow foamy gew and her primary arms were spindly. In ALIEN 3 although the alien looked good agian, fox cut out to many shots of the alien and the movie was suposed to be a lot longer, but fox wanted to get more showings of the movie to make more money and they cut up Finchers film!... Finaly ALIEN Resurrection deprived H.R Giger of his rights, The moie could have been better near the end (the first half was very good, The CG aliens only looked good under water, and the newborn absolutly sucked oh the Newborn shoulod have been left out. The Alien reproductive system (that was shown in ALIENS) was fine the way it was so why fix it? Now as for the Alien desings (besides the Newbon, piece of shit ingrate) they looked better than ever the were realy close to Gigers original desings (exept for having triple segmented legs, but that was for the better any way), the Queen looked a lot bigger and and her primary arms and legs were now proportional to the rest of her body as a Drone aliens arms and legs are to ist body. I hated what happend to the poor Queen, laying on her back with a womb sack giving birth to a piece of shit that rips of her head! The alien reproductive system should have been left alone, it was more efficent in aliens and made more sence, but in Alien resurrection i actualy felt sorry for the Queen, is it just me or should people not have to feel sorry for what is trying to scare them! Some advise to fox if they plan on an ALIEN 5: Put the Reproductive system back to normal (delete the newborn!) make sure the audience sees more of the Queen, and well just make the movie a lot longer! Have less jokes, and ADD H.R GIGER'S NAME TO THE CREDITS!

Comments: An artist's job is to take all the visions stuck inside the human psyche and put them on a canvas. As a poet, I know this as the truth. Artists contribute to the human race just by winding up all those toys we have in the mental attic and releasing them. For Fox to take those toys and never give credit to Giger is dishonorable, and blatantly illegal. I don'tunderstand how the people at Fox can even CONCEIVE of getting away with this. For the sake of art, this cannot be tolerated.

Comments: Since my last contribution I have done a research project for H.R. Giger. All the Colleges and Universities in my present area (Calgary) consider plagerism, the use of someone elses idea without giving that person credit, an offence that warrants expulsion. This applies to all students regardless of status. Also, plagerism in any published work is (as far as I'm aware) illegal in Canada and the United States. Upon breaking this law the culprit is subject to legal action such as fines and possibly a jail sentance. Why is fox considered exempt from these laws. The fact that they have special rights because they're a big time production company is un constitutional. Frankly, my point is: if I can be expelled for it fox should have to pay for it!

Comments: Today I found out that Fox had used Giger's work without giving him credit for it. That is theft. What can be done to obtain justice for Giger and to make Fox pay what they owe? I for one shall not go and see Alien 4 until I know that credit is given where credit is due. What is the e-mail address of Fox so I can give them a piece of my mind? Insert a mailto: link for this purpose! Otherwise the matter will drift into the past, Fox will effectively get away with it and Giger is the one who suffers. Once more, an original artist (without whose work there wouldn't have been an Alien 2, let alone 4) is screwed by a company who don't have the sense to look any further than their bank account.

Comments: Mr. Giger, It's true, you have been robbed. Not only have you not been given the proper credit for creating the most terrifying nightmare monster anyone has ever seen, I think that Gillis & Woodruff further reinforced that point with their pathetically unscary "Newborn." I thought Alien Ressurection was a really poor film, and the birth of the Newborn was just the crowning turd on a cake made out of shit. An awful design with no compositon or unity of form. All the spooky biomechanical essence of your original creation was drowned under what looked like white snot. Most of my friends thought it looked like Pumpkinhead. But Pumpkinhead would have been better looking than this pot-bellied farce. Alien has always been the best film of the four so far, and I don't think that anyone will be able to make a comparable fim until you are brought back into the design fold with the kind of artistic control and respect that you deserve.

Comments: During my apprenticeship as a sculptor I've been strongly influenced by the Necronomicon and ARh+ from HRG. I am convinced not only that the succes of Alien and the sequels was greatly enhanced by the HRG designs but the more that the whole movie wouldn't have existed without it. I'm sorry for the people at Fox, but hey, get real, did you really think you could 'alienate' the creation from it's creator? And get away with it? Whoever goes to see any Alien-movie will like it only because of HRG's creation's. Have a second look at his work and think of what you all have become!

Comments: To Alien Insurection, Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff of Amalgamated Dynamic Inc. are the special FX team that worked on Alien 3 and Alien Resurection. They were screen credited with "creating" the creature designs for those movies. But it is clear that they had simply taken Mr. Gigers original design from Alien and adapted it. I think you may find the following quotes interesting. I found them in a magazine article on Alien 3. "Our goal was to sculpt Gigers designs into repeating organic textures...."--Gillis "This is still Giger's Alien, and we've done very little to change it. In fact, we were breaking out his Necronomicon at the finishing stages....." --- Woodruff ---- From Fangoria #114 p.40 1992 I personaly do not hold Mr. Gillis or Mr. Woodruff entirly responsable. They were not in charge of the overall films. But 20th Century Fox is. I feel that the reason why Fox has been so reluctant to give Mr. Giger the proper credit is because they fear that they would be legaly responsable to pay him for the use of his designs. This is about money. Their are rumers that Alien 5 is in the works. Since Mr. Gigers designs were plagerized in the last two Alien films, I fear that their will be a repeat of this again in the next film. I hope something can be done. If a comic book company (Dark Horse) can give Mr. Giger the proper respect and credit for the use of his designs then so should 20th Century Fox a major film studio. It is an injustice for anyone to create something wonderful and not be given the proper credit for it. Fight the insurection!!!! A huge fan, Frank Licitra 9 Falmouth Ln Glen Head NY 11545

Comments: I have seen the previous Alien movies so many times that I can quote the first one line by line and the second and third ones I'll only make a couple of mistakes. The fact is that the only reason I've seen them so many times is due to the fact that H.R.Giger made a creature that is both frightening and morbidly fascinating at the same time. I've done reports on movie culture that are on nothing but the 'Alien' phenomenon and why it (the movie) was so immensely popular. The bottom line of those reports is that the creature is most responsible.... H.R.Giger's creature. Alien Resurrection was the second Alien movie I saw on the big screen and I thought it was crap! The crowning touch that left me cold was the infamous snub. H.R.Giger you are a genius with a disturbing outlook and you deserved to work on every Alien movie made, it was your creation, but you certainly deserve credit for your ideas. If it makes you feel better I will always credit you as the Alien father. And I'm definitely going to boycott Alien Resurrection (As if I had any desire to watch it again any way).

I hope that he can resolve this dispute through legal channels and look forward to the publication of any repilies to his letters on this site.

Comments: First of all, I 've been a fan of H.R.G.'s for about 13 yrs. and it was Alien that turned me on to him. I did'nt realize he was'nt credited with Alien3 when I saw it in the theatre, because the credit is given on the home video which I own. But I did notice the credit was missing on Alien4 and to be quite honest it did'nt even matter because any true fan knows that Alien is HRG.'s baby and no-one can strip him of that. I just wanted you to know that I know this and there are a host of very knowledgeable fans in the NYC area anyway. We all know(your fans here) that you gave birth to the best sci-fi monster ever. Even if that movie came out today it would still have the same impact on me as it did back then..Anyway just to let you know you were not forgotten as far as your fans go....Rob

Comments: It will be interesting to see whether, in the light of the growing astonishment at Fox's arrogant decision, they back down. Their attitude seems typical of the corporate types who would never be able to dream such horrific images as those which Giger has produced. As a fan of many years, one can only hope that the children at Fox realise that people won't stand for this kind of brutal behaviour. Perhaps the only good thing to come out of this whole issue is the sheer volume of support that the Alien: Insurrection venture has understandably amassed. Like the many other people who have bothered to write here, I am in total sympathy with Mr. Giger's position, and wish him a quick resolution to a problem which should never have arisen.

Comments: 20th Century Fox should be ashamed of themselves! Tell 'em I said to give Giger his due, damn it. BTW, I was playing ELP's Brain Salad Surgery CD and noticed that the artwork looked like Giger. Sure enough, there was his name in the credits (where is should be). 20th Century Fox should be aware that many Sci-Fi fans are very intelligent and that we also tend to have large disposable incomes that we will not spend on thier products if we find out that they are doing sleazy things like not giving artists the proper credit. We also use cyber space-based chats & news, where we can spread news faster than wildfire.

Comments: If fox are trying to dissasociate the Geiger from current and future parts of the alien saga they will find this to be a mistake they will wind up paying for at the box office. This also explains why Alien ressurection although more entertaining than Alien 3 was about as tense and scary as Dumbo. I deal with more creatures on a night on the town that are more scary than the so called newborn. I felt more pitty than fear for the creature.

The ALIEN universe could have not been the same without your work upon it. You are a real genious of the bizarre. But let me tell you that we, ALIEN fans, recognize that you are the ALIEN FATHER, as SCOTT was so happy with your work. That NECRONOM IV creature is really cool.

Comments: I`m not agree with the decision of fox. I think that ALIEN without Gigers design wouldn`t be as half as interesting. It would never reached the state of cult. Und jetzt nochmal das ganze in Deutsch, damit auch jeder weiss was ich eigentlich sagen wollte: Ich denke das ALIEN ohne Gigers kunstvolles Design nie den Kultstatus erreicht haette. Dass die Verantwortlichen von FOX Giger nicht im Vorspann von ALIEN IV genannt haben, hat mich ebenfalls geschockt. Allerdings wuerde mich mal interessieren, wass Herr Giger von den Designern Alec Gillis und Tom Woodruff haelt, da sie ja bei ALIEN 3 zusammengearbeitet haben.

Comments: As an artist greatly influenced by H.R. Giger's work, let me say that Fox's decision to do this comes as no suprise. Movie makers have done this for a long time. Their first movie they give credit to everyone, yet for all the sequels they cut all the credits out until its destroyed any symbolisim the movie once had. Ridley Scott was right to use Mr. Giger for the set design, Giger is a brilliant surrealist and probably has more ideas in his head than the entire crew on the set of Alien III. Thank you for letting me vent my frustrations Sincerely Judd Bradley

Thus, I was unaware of the horrible injustice that has befallen the greatest artist I have ever known, H.R. Giger. When I read of this disgrace I was outraged and sickened. Please send Mr. Giger my deapest regards and if possible the Fox corporation my feelings of rage. However, I feel it important to bless the fact that Mr. Giger can always have the recognition he deserves as given through his books, and other media. I love everything that Alien stands for but I love everything it was founded on more that being H.R. Giger and none other.

I believe that we all need to have broader out-look on the world like you, that way people can explore the depths of the images in their head (everybody has images in their head Unfortunately they choose not to view them) and put together an understanding of what they mean. A lot of people tend not to explore these images and I think that really is the problem. I don't know if you get a lot of messages like this one, and I'm not really bothered, I'm just expressing something that's in my head, strangely I've been thinking like this ever since my brother died in a car accident. After the accident my mother has turned spiritual and has taken it upon herself to become a healer, my mother has become more open minded towards the images in her head, these images are of indian origin, strange that isn't it.

Comments: It is a crime that Giger has gotten the infamous "Hollywood Shaft". His work more than perhaps any other inspired me to do what I do today (digital special effects). Mr. Giger's absence from the credits of this latest Alien installment is all the more inexcusiable because of this film's nearly unprecedented adherence to the artist's original designs. By "designs" I'm reffering to the overall body of his life's work, not just the part that was used in the first Alien, making this without a doubt my favorite Alien sequel to date. It is sad that the great respect I have for this movie is sullied by the grossly unjust neglect for the artist that made it possible. - Matthew W.

Did they figure that it had been so long since the original design that it didn't need to be mentioned anymore? Maybe. Either way the bottom line is that they won't back down now. Perharps, if Alien5 ever sees the light of day they will realise the error of their ways and rectify the situation but as far as Alien Resurrection goes it could be something of a lost cause.

If they stopped thinking by way of comittee, they would realize they are shooting themselves in the foot by denying the fact that H. R. Giger is the rightful creator of the alien lifeform concept and environment. Well, then again, I've known for a long time that the film industry has a notorious reputation for butchering both literature and art.

As a great fan of Giger's work I think that the snubbing of the present movie is ridiculous.

For me Giger's Alien will always be the definitive alien - such beauty, such agression and intelligence - an amzing piece of work. In fact a bigger shame is that Giger did not work on the Ressurection film - which if he had we might have avoided the err...baby alien. The new alien design rather spoiled what was otherwise an excellent film. All the best with the cause! Maybe Fox will repent and Giger will work on Alien 5 and we'll all be happy!

But I personally believe that the series has drifted away from the dark origonal concept, and been infected by the suits at FOX to make a film with a happy ending rather than the films that the alien series should develop into. The alien design/idea had so much potential until it became fashionable/very profitable. Keep GIGER/ALIEN together as they should be CREATOR/CREATURE. I'd rather they never did another film, than allow somebody else to water down the ideas again.
