Synopsis

Surrealist artist H. R. Giger (1940–2014) 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 dark, intricate paintings and sculptures depicting birth, death, and sex.

Our take

Few artists have as wide reaching an influence as H.R. Giger and his terrifying work, most notably his Oscar-winning visual designs for Ridley Scott’s Alien. This documentary takes us inside Giger’s home, offering illuminating glimpses into the vision of a singularly provocative mind.
