double jointed

It’s funny: The double teeth came when I did my first drawings. Ridley Scott told me to make it so that it could move. I hadn’t studied any animal. My instructions were that it should be somehow frightening and horrible, and I did my best.

Artist H. R. Giger who created the alien for the movie Alien, which, it turns out, has a jaw remarkably like a moray eel, as reported in yesterday's New York Times.

Update: Mr. Giger is Swiss.

I know! and I neglected to mention it -- I hope this doesn't create diplomatic difficulties. ;)

I'll update.
