Explore H.R. Giger’s Twisted World In This Trailer For The Documentary Dark Star

fb share tweet share

Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger is best known to the majority of us for creating one of the most harrowing, terrifying movie monsters of all time, the xenomorphs from Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien. Sadly, he passed away earlier this year, back in May, but a new documentary seeks to examine his life and work, which is every bit as strange and interesting as you might expect. The first trailer for Dark Star: H.R. Giger’s World has arrived, and you can check it out for yourself here.

Directed by Belinda Sallin, Dark World looks at the man behind the macabre, sexually charged artwork. The film peeks into the self-contained world he lived in, where he placed himself at the center, leaving everyone and everything else to revolve around him, which is where the Dark Star portion of the title originates. Only a few of his closest friends and underlings were allowed into this shadowy world he created for himself, and even then it wasn’t easy to navigate, but whereas he was once considered fringe, he has become recognized for his genius and contribution to the art world.

Alien Screenwriter Dan O’Bannon Originally Imagined Very Different Xenomorphs

fb share tweet share

AlienRipThe so-called “xenomorphs” of the Alien franchise are easily one of the most terrifying creations even to grace the movie screen. Cooked up in collaboration with Swiss surrealist artist and all-around weirdo H.R. Giger, the xenomorphs are every body-horror nightmare you can think of, blended together into a perfect killing machine that, if you’re lucky, will tear you apart instead of deciding to cocoon you as host for a chestburster. But it turns out that Alien screenwriter Dan O’Bannon’s ideas about the nature and culture of the xenomorphs were very, very different from how they have been developed in the films that followed.

We all know the life-cycle of the xenomorphs from the films. They begin as leathery eggs, waiting patiently until an organic being gets close enough, then boom, a facehugger pops out and drops an embryo down your throat. After a while the facehugger drops off, you seem fine for a while, and then a tiny chestburster bites and tears and claws its way out of your chest cavity. Off it scampers to grow into a full warrior drone or, occasionally, a queen. In O’Bannon’s original conception of the aliens, things start out the same way, but after the chestburster, we get something else entirely.

It never fails to amaze me just how many out-of-left-field ways creative fans come up with to remix and riff on their favorite movies. We’ve seen animated gifs designed to look like custom neon art. We’ve seen Lucasfilm and ILM employees take sidewalk art to the next level. And now? Now we can see what classic science fiction films such as Alien, Inception, and A Clockwork Orange would look like if adapted into traditional Ottoman-style paintings. See if you can guess which one this is.

There are a lot of great, memorable death scenes in movies. Some pack an emotional punch, others play key narrative roles, and still more are just plain awesome. This new video collects 26 of the most unforgettable, important, and straight up crazy film deaths, each chosen by a different director. Sci-fi is well represented on this list, with some of your favorite moments showing up, as well as a few surprising omissions.

This video is one of the coolest bits of promotion we’ve ever seen, coming from Drafthouse Films and Magnet Releasing to pump up the release of their horror anthology ABCs of Death 2. The concept is that 26 directors made 26 short films, each assigned a different letter of the alphabet. As you probably guessed, each filmmaker also got to choose their favorite cinematic death scene for inclusion in this video. That would be a tough one, there are so many to pick from, and what if someone beat you to the punch and named your favorite? You’re obviously going to be publicly judged on the basis of your selection.
