H.R. Giger Movies & Productions - Filmography

Giger's first endeavor into the realm of visual media was a short black & white film called High and Heimkiller. This eleven minute film was the first glimpse the world would have at this innovator of dark surrealism. Unfortunately, acquiring any of Giger's work before Alien is extremely difficult. 

Alien earned him an Academy Award and international acclaim. This put Giger in the world spotlight for the first time, and concurrently revolutionized science fiction, fantasy, and horror artwork and creature design. If you take a look at today's monsters and sci-fi horror landscapes, you can see Giger's influence in almost all of them (For instance: the Borg and their ship form STTNG). Giger has done interviews, making of... specials, short films, music videos, major motion pictures, and more. He has been involved in almost every aspect of filmmaking.
