Dark Star: HR Giger's World


Surrealist artist H.R. Geiger terrified audiences with his Oscar-winning monsters in Ridley Scott’s “Alien.” Sci-fi, horror, music, album covers, tattoos, and fetish art have been influenced by his intricate and nightmarish paintings and sculptures depicting birth, death, and sex. Both a mesmerizing introduction to Giger’s ouvre and a must-see for Giger devotees, this definitive documentary shares the last years of the artist’s life and reveals how deeply he resided in his own dark artistic visions.
