New Alien mini doc dissects the elegance of HR Giger's beautiful monster

As Halloween season looms just over the horizon, our thoughts naturally drift to those indelible movie monsters and creatures that incite us to shiver in fear.

One of the most notorious culprits of this phenomenon is the nasty xenomorph parasite created by the twisted mind of surrealist painter HR Giger for Sir Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi frightfest, Alien. Youtuber KaptainKrisitian takes us on a disturbing journey into the mind of Giger and how Scott became enamored of the artist's unsettlingly sensual works, leading to them used not only as the basis for the stowaway monster aboard the ill-fated space tug Nostromo, but also the entirety of the hostile LV-426 landscape and the organo-form derelict spaceship.

Blast into this beautifully composed tribute to Giger's bio-mechanical nightmares and don't be afraid to release a pent-up scream!
