Comments: So, it finally comes the day when absolutely all credibility is thrown out the window. Be not surprised. This is merely a symptom, in a year when David Mamet has to shar screen credit for Wag the Dog and Jim Cameron wins Best Director and Best Movie, it is only somehow fitting that Giger get screwed. Hollywood has once again succeeded in putting the tumbscrews to us, and frankly we are letting it happen. From the bottom of my heart I decry the sins of Fox, of Hollywood, and praise the fortitude and integrity of H.R. Giger and his many fans. I am proud to be numbered among them. Fight the power!

Je n'avais rien vu de tel avant. J'ai appris que les monstres pouvaient etre beau. J'ai meme ose reproduire l'Alien N°1 en gravure (pointe seche), mais sur cette copie, moi j'ai grave "Merci Giger" a la place de "20th century FOX".

Comments: As much as I don't like the american film-industry to take advantage of fine intellectual work like yours, I also don't like the fact that they are making money out of it on your expense, and not to mention ourselves; the consumers of the product. However, the sequels to Alien are all inferior to the first and can never create the same atmosphere and fear it envokes in all of us who have seen it. The last movie, Alien: Resurrection, is a total turkey and the newborn looks like a puny mongoloid Alien creature! Be glad you are not mentioned in the credits. Americans have yet another time shown how crazy for money they are, and at the same time shown how little taste and lack of fantasy they have. It has all become just another boring action movie.

Comments: I belive that fox has stolen gigers "child". Whenever I think of the alien or if i am reading one of the books I only think of Gigers alien and not what is being described to me. the beautifull design of the alien is definatly Gigers style of art, and I have never seen another thing like it ever. and for fox not to give you credit for gigers work when it brought fox a fortune is unbeliveable. I loved the alien design in resurection better than any of the other movies because it is more alien now and closer to what giger was trying to display. I hope that this horible problem will be rectified soon, or i might be crazy enough to boycott the other movies unless gigers name is displayed prowdly in the opening credits.

It is obvious that there is,in no way, any doubt that the alien in Alien 4 is based from the Necronom drawings and it is stunning to think that a major Film Corporation can Deny H.R. Giger his rightful credit. You have my full support

I think and belive that Giger is the best and the only one Alien father

The story of how Dan O'Bannon and Ridley Scott found the design of the creature in "Necronomicon" is part of cinema legend. Your creature is horrific, beautiful and entirely your own.

I mean, the films - especially the last one - are SO visual! The whole idea of these movies, the atmosphere, the horror, the fear, it's all based on the Giger's alien lifeforms. This is to me very disrespectful... especially since the Artist have pointed out that he would like to be creditted!

Comments: I am quite unable to comprehend how greedy FOX really is. There is game called "Quake" (some of you may know it) and a small group of people created an addon to this game called Alien. It deals with the whole alien theme as you play as a marine attempting to stop the Alien menace. This addon was excellently done, and could have been a game in itself. But... FOX heard about the game and decided that it was infringing on their copyright, as a result they shut the whole operation down. I just think that's pretty sad....

I think that by not giving you crdeit for your creation, they ceated you out of entitelments of being the creater. I hope that you do take legal action. for those people who do not know about your works of art and your creations, they assume that the movie producers came up with the design of the alien.I think it is only apporaite that you take leagal action, and let those who think they can take credit for your work, that they can not get away with it. sincerarly, kurt williams

Comments: Giger's oversight in the A4 credits is both a personal insult to the individual artist and a global threat to all artists. Intellectual property is the artist's welfare, and must be protected. Giger ranks with Syd Mead and Ralph Mcquarie (sp?) as one of the pioneering giants of sci-fi movie design, and future iterations on his initial designs must still reflect credit back upon him. As an artist myself, I have been greatly influenced by both Giger's work and the Alien films (well, at least the first two...) and I wish to see him reap the rewards he so richly deserves.

Comments: I vividly remember the first time I saw Giger's ALIEN. I was a young child and my parents were watching ALIEN on television. I was too young and not allowed to watch it. I snuck into the adjacent room and could see the TV screen reflected in the glass frame of a picture hanging above their heads. When the creature appeared, needless to say it made an indelible impression on me, The ALIEN series as we know it would simply NOT EXIST without the vision of H.R. GIGER, I have seen many films since that night when I was a childand many movie monsters . But NONE of them have struck me as his did. It seems like the basest common sense that Giger should be given credit for a vision so pure and unique, especially since he ws inlisted to work officially on the first film. It is an abject display of greed, arrogance and ignorance on the part of FOX to bold facedly ignore the massive contribution Giger made to their "franchise". They should give credit where credit is due, It's the HUMAN thing to do.

I have read all the Alien-based comics (wll, almost) and some of them are really dull. Why? Cause the artist have tried to COPY the feelings of Giger's artistical creations. No, all are not dull, like ALIENS: Book one, but some creations such as Superman vs Aliens is quite ... I love Giger's art. I hate people who try to denie Giger as creator of aliens.

Comments: It is an outrage to separate an artist from true original creation. A debasement of that creation and an afront like separating mother from child. To allow this abduction of a work is to send a message to creators their children are not safe in the world at large. Kidnapping and murder of an essence is not strong enough to express how I feel on this subject. HR Geiger and others like him are the modern creators of a mythology, filling a spiritual gulf with visualisations and realisations - these are sadly lacking in our modern world. It is with great sadness that an empty few seek to separate the artist from his children - his creations. Why is it not possible to nuture the crreation and the creator? The goose that laid the golden egg comes to mind here... I am 35 and over those 35 years of experience few images have made such an impact on me as have Gieger's. Sparking at once an impetus to other ideas and a sudden realisation of what is confronted. Put simply - the separation of artist from creation cannot be allowed to happen. We have to defend this as we would our own culture and identity - it is a global ownership and one that belongs firmly attached to its nexus - it's umbillical... this is not just an outrage it is violence in its blackest form. I hope the intellectuals do not allow this crime to continue or go un punished. With best regards to Mr Geiger and his appreciators. Ian Taylor - Australia/UK

I've always like Giger's artwork since Aliens (too young and naive to remember much from the first one). From reading Giger's letters, he sounds pretty peeved. If it isn't obvious enough that the whole Alien atmosphere belongs to Giger then Fox has done something wrong somewhere.

A few years later, I watched Aliens again to redeem myself. I fell in love with the Xenomorphs. Fox is showing us its pure corporate greed by denying HR Giger his credit. Their precious Quadrilogy (going on Quintilogy) would not even exist without his help. And Fox protects this money maker with legal threats and everything. 4 Add-Ons for Quake (which were to be offered for FREE) were shut down by Fox so its own inept game based on Aliens would not have any contenders. The only real money maker Fax should do is release the extended versions of Alien, Aliens, and Alien 3 to DVD along with Res.

Comments: Alien4 was a dreadful film. Primarily because of the new Alien designs, which were like a cheap forgery of Giger. The half-human half-Alien by far the most abhorrent example of this. Had Giger designed it, it could have been mesmorizing. But instead it was a complete artistic failure. I hope Giger wins his battle with Fox. The real irony hear? Fox is one of the most militant protectors of copyright. Websites devoted to the TV show 'The Simpsons' are closed down daily because of 'copyright violation'. Hypocrasy indeed.

If it arose that Mr. Giger chose not to associate himself further with filmmakers, I, for one, would not blame him. It is my hope, however, that the intellectual and artistic abuse he has experienced of late will not drive him from a field wherein there are so many other visionaries who are willing to appreciate and create unique cinematic art with this man.

Comments: I am stunned by the stupidity(best fitting word) of FOX... I cannot believe, that they do not give proper credit where credit is due. HR Giger's artwork is unbelieaveble, and I would give him credit, even if I did not use his artwork. The use of his artwork is apparent to anyone, and it is quite clear that his work and intellectual inspiration is apparant throughout the film. Alien 4 contains more footage of the actual aliens than any of the previous films, and every second is pure HR Giger paintings coming to life. I beleive that the first reaction from FOX (none) is an expression of their immediate fear of reprecausion. The fact that HR Giger has clearly been misused is apparent to anyone, and my reaction to their ineffectivity and childish denial cannot be clearly expressed in words.. I give my best hopes and wishes to HR Giger, and hope that he will recieve the appropriate credits as well as a formal excuse for this incredible lack of intellect.

Comments: I have just witnessed the Alien4 in movie theatre and I could say I'm NOT pleased what I have seen. First of all, it's really anoying when someone takes all the credit from someone elses work. Second, the movie it self had serious faults. The Aliens were quite beatiful, though it were just cause of computer graphicses progress. But a movie is nothing without a good script. So, is it so bad that You don't get credit from a bad movie ?

Comments: H.R. Giger's style and creativity are constantly being ripped off - this is just another example of it. All I would have to say to the man is this: They must love your work or they wouldn't steal it from you. No one with any sense can look at any image that is a ripoff of your style and not notice where it came from. Credit doesn't have to be spelled out in text or willfully given - we all know where the credit belongs for the imagery in the "Alien" movies. The history of Art is a cannabalistic feeding frenzy of ideas and styles; you're just another page in that history. I must admit, though, that Fox has lost my respect and my business as a result of this blatant abuse. I have found all of the "Alien" sequels to be disappointing compared to the original, and this lack of credit gives me the excuse I need to never bother to view the latest installment. I have no desire to feed money to a corporation that behaves in this manner.

Comments: Dear sirs, Being a great admirer of HR Giger's work already before the first film was shot, My opinion obviously goes in favor of H.G.'s point of vieuw in the matter of his claim for credits in the latest Alien (4) movie. The attitude Fox has taken on this subject is one of greed, and I wish compnies (not persons) could be punished as the victims were by the psychopath in the movie 'SEVEN'. Naturally, this is not possible. What I can do to support him is send a mail to my chatlist (containing about 300 e-mail-fantasy enthousiasts, to take a look at this site and try to convince them to send their reaction to you. Meanwhile, I whish you a lot of succes in achieving the credits and the money that you deserve. Peter

Without HRG it is safe to say that "Alien" and its sequels would have looked quite different and may never have happened in the first place! Talk about a bunch of ingrates...!

Comments: I first got interested in Giger's work because of ALIEN, and now I am a huge fan, as some of the pictures are fantastic. I just can't believe that FOX would be so stupid as to not give him credit for probably the most original and brilliant designs ever seen. Especially when it is obvious that the aliens in Alien:Resurrection are 'inspired' by Giger's "Necronomicon". It seems to me to be a case of plagiarism, OK, maybe that's a little strong, but it amounts to the same thing, when this happens All I can say to Giger is fight for what is rightfully yours, and please keep coming up with the amazing art!

Fox are not Cool... they should be carefull with their image. I cost a lot of money for a good publicity. And with no money you can destroy it all... Like they did! They now must do something and apologize really hard! -=-=-=-=-=- J'aime l'art de Giger. J'aime son art encore plus que le concept de l'alien. Il n'y a aucun doute que des credits devraient lui etre donné pour tous les films Alien. Il est le père de l'Alien... Fox sont très con! Ils devraient faire attention a leur image.

I would like to know what right FOX have to exclude and ignore a major reason for the Alien movies' success. All I can add is that I hope Giger rises above the pettyness of the movie industry and carries on to enlighten us mere mortals with his strokes of brilliance. I know we all feel the same!

Comments: Having really enjoyed the Alien movies I became very interested in Giger's work. For me the Alien/Giger relationship is a unit and one cannot get the movie without the artist's creation. The entire feel of the movie would be completely different were other 'aliens' to be used. I have yet to find an 'alien' movie which grabs me the way the Alien series has, and I honestly think that the Giger Alien is responsible for this. At the first showing here in RSA I eagerly awaited to see Giger's name emblazoned somewhere on the screen. To my great disappointment it never appeared. Upon investigation I came upon your site and the truth of the matter. Needless to say I am appalled by the actions of the responsible film studio, and as a big fan of the film feel rather let down. I can only imagine the betrayal Giger must feel. I do hope that some agreement is reached so that the Alien/Giger partnership can be healed. Those that are in the wrong know it, it is up to them to correct it.

Comments: I hate greedy non creative types who don't have the imagination to create, so instead they rape those of us who do and take all the credit for it. Why? Because they can. Because money talks. Because sadly, there are people who are more concerned with making money than creating art. I am a huge fan of the Alien films. Mainly, I am a huge fan of Giger and his work. I was not aware that Giger would be getting fucked over yet again by FOX on this 4th movie. I went and saw it the first day it came out and I looked for Giger's name and when I didn't see it, I was upset. I was already aware of the Alien III situation and it just further angered me that FOX did it again. Giger loves his work. I thought the new movie started out with a good premise. I liked the new Ripley. I wasn't too happy with the new Digital Alien. Especially since they just scanned in Giger's work. That Newborn creature was lame. The ending was lame. The movie definitely could have been better. How do you think George Lucas would react if FOX began using his Star Wars creations in their own movies and didn't give him credit? How about if we stick E.T. in a sequel and give credit for his creation to Stan Winston? I honestly can't beleive FOX is getting away with this. GIGER should get paid! He is the creator!

Comments: I'm basically regurgitating everything that has been previously mentioned by Alien Fans. however, I did not know about this H.R.Giger dilemma until coming across this webpage. And I thought Alien Resurrection was as good as Alien and Aliens. Well, my life has come to a screeching halt now that I have found out that Giger has been wronged. I almost feel guilty for liking Alien Resurrection. The Alien movies revolve around 2 things-- HR Giger's Aliens and Sigourney Weaver as Ripley. If you replace Sigourney with another actress, Ripley's character would never be the same. So if the Aliens arent credited by Giger, its as if they were "made" by someone else. And if I found out that the Aliens in Resurrection werent credited by Giger, then I would be watching a fake. Okay, maybe this was a bad analogy. In short.... HR Giger is the sole creator of these creatures and nobody could have the equal imagination to do so. Give the man some props. He is probably an Alien in disguise for all we know. Hail!!

The person who is responsible for creating not only a multi million dollars franchise (Movies, toys, comic books, video games, etc.) but who is also responsible for creating the monster that changed my life as a kid. I would truly love Giger getting the credit he deserves. I would also love to see Giger get full creative control over any future Alien films so that they do not all suffer the same fate as the last ones (all great movies, they just lack something the first had). If you don't get the recognization that you've earned, then I would say sue them. It is clearly a cut and dry case and I don't think you would have any problems at all raking 20th Century Fox over the coals.

Giger's work.I think that the work Giger did for the Alien movies is pure genius, and I hope my voiced opinion can help in any way,and personally to H.R Giger, just remember, when you brack it all down, it's still your design, and they cant ever take that from you faithful fan always, Aaron weaver

Comments: I wish to add my voice to the many fans of the Aliens films who know that these movies would be nothing without the brilliant and haunting designs of H.R. Giger. It shows a remarkable lack of integrity on the part of Twentieth Century Fox to deny Giger his rightful credit, as it shows a remarkable lack of intelligence that his services were not obtained in creating the "Newborn" creature for the most recent movie. The "Newborn" is cheap imitation of Gigers work that is incapable of approaching the grace, beauty and dignity of the Master. Even die-hard Alien fans will one day grow tired of such insults; and if Twentieth Century Fox wishes to maintain the series and the income it creates, it had best do everything in its power to draw Mr. Giger back into its studios.
