Knee-deep in hell - Hans Rudolf Giger

Swiss painter, sculptor,designer.
Debuted with art books called "Necronomicon".
And,everyone knows his masterpiece Alien(which gained him Oscar in 1980).
The design of the creature with strong Freudian sexual undertones and multiple phallic symbols, while simultaneously presenting an overall feminine figure, provided a compelling androgynous image, conforming to archetypal mappings and imageries in horror films that often redraw gender lines.
The huge worms in Dune movie were also by his design.
Also:Poltergeis in Poltergeist II,Sil in Species, batmobile in Batman Forever.
