Dark Star: H.R. Giger’s World Documentary

Horror website, Dread Central, has posted up an article about an upcoming documentary about the legendary H.R Giger:

“One of the greatest and most influential artists who ever lived, H.R. Giger is a fascinating man to say the very least, and the documentary film Dark Star: H.R. Giger’s World looks to explore every facet of his life and talent.

Directed by Belinda Sallin, the film features interviews with Giger himself along with Carmen Maria Giger, Stanislav Grof, Hans H. Kunz, Leslie Barany, Paul Tobler,Tom Gabriel Fischer, Carmen Scheifele de Vega, Mia Bonzanigo, Andreas J. Hirsch, Marco Witzig, Sandra Beretta, and Müggi III.”

The documentary is already in cinemas in Switzerland. No word as to if it will be released online yet. You can check out the official website at darkstar-movie.com.

Update: I have spoken to the team behind Dark Star and they have advised that the film is looking at release in Germany and Austria in January of 2015. They hope to be able to bring the documentary out in more countries after that. They are also looking at a DVD release at the end of 2015.

    Good point. Was asking myself as well, but on the second thought it is super fitting title. He was a star in the shadows, not only that he lived like it, but unfortunately because the "system" did not give him further public respect or recognition.

    I wonder if they realized when they chose the beginning of the title for this the connection to Dan O'Bannon,John Carpenter & ALIEN? You cannot copyright a title. Was intentional or its just a coincidence?
