Known for his works' disquieting, [[OrganicTechnology biomechanical]], often [[FreudWasRight sexual]] imagery, Giger achieved much of his fame from his work in films as a set and creature designer. Among the film projects he worked on were ''Film/{{Alien}}'', ''Film/{{Alien 3}}'', ''Film/{{Dune}}'', ''Film/PoltergeistIITheOtherSide'', ''Film/{{Species}}'', and ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'', which actually dusted off some unused concepts from a Pre-David Lynch ''Dune'' film that never [[Creator/AlejandroJodorowsky got off the ground]]. Before this he provided two paintings for Music/EmersonLakeAndPalmer's album ''Brain Salad Surgery'', one of which had to be airbrushed for purposes of censorship. The Music/DeadKennedys included a poster of his painting ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Penis Landscape]]'' with their album ''Music/{{Frankenchrist}}'' -- for which they got in a little trouble, Music/{{Danzig}} used his art for the cover of ''Danzig III: How the Gods Kill'', and Music/CelticFrost used his painting ''Satan I'' for the cover of their seminal album ''To Mega Therion''.

* AuthorPhobia: He's known to have [[BasedOnADream incorporated his nightmares into his creations]]. Apparently, he often worked through his sleeplessness. Giger also had a phobia of worms and snakes.
