The Beauty of H.R. Giger's ALIEN Design Detailed in Cool Video
Today I learned that the "H. R." in H. R. Giger's name is "Hans Rudolf." I can't believe I went all these years without questioning what that stood for, but now I'm glad I know! Some of you may have heard the story of the Xenomorph from Alien coming from something H.R. Giger saw while on LSD, and while that may be true, Kaptain Kristian says Ridley Scott hand-selected the creature from one of Giger's books. Judging from the fact the Xenomorph changes very little from the original design, it's not impossible that both stories are true and that Giger's inspiration just happened long before he knew his design would become a film icon.
