Hi, what are you looking for?



This year marked the passing of H.R. GIGER into the realm of the unknown, and into the realm of legend. His art is transformative, and will be appreciated for generations for its surreal, nightmare landscapes and terrifying imaginings. Our comrade in film Zev Deans has put together a collection of Giger’s film work – both experimental films and documentary films – and will be screening NECRONOMICON: THE FILMS OF H.R. GIGER one night only on Wednesday, October 15th at the Spectacle Theatre in Brooklyn, NY. The films include the work he did alongside FM Murer and JJ Wittmer, as well as two music videos he directed. All of the films are from the 60s and 70s, and include a look into his studio and the work he did on the legendary Alien. Check out the trailer below and more event info here!

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15 – 7:30 PM & 10:00 PM

Spectacle Theater
124 S 3rd St, Brooklyn, New York 11211

The main attraction takes the form of two films, made over the course of the latter half of the 70s, Wittmer & Giger’s collaboration affords the viewer an authenticity rarely achieved by documentarians. Both films are scored by Giger’s friend, experimental synth-meister Joel Vandroogenbroeck (of the band Brainticket), drenching the atmosphere in moody psychedelia.

With Necronomicon (1975), Wittmer allows us to step into Giger’s literal POV as he moves through his studio, a gallery opening, meals with friends & family and more. Narration consists of internal dialogue written by Giger, himself. The film is littered with interviews with eccentric collectors and friends, images of never-before-photographed artwork, and a sequence in which Giger airbrushes an entire painting from scratch.

Giger’s Alien (1979) is narrated by Giger, himself, and provides an in-depth trek through the arduous process of realizing his work on Ridley Scott’s Alien. As we watch Giger move through the stages of conceptualizing and fabricating his most well-known body of work, we get a first-hand account of the trials of protecting a sublimely original artistic vision against the pressures of working for a Hollywood Studio.
