In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

R.I.P. H.R. Giger 1940 - 2014.

The very sad news of the passing of Swiss surrealist artist H.R. Giger awaited me this morning. He was 74. His paintings and sculptures were known the world over for their dark imagery. Here is just a taste.

This one graces my bedroom wall.

Giger contributed to many forms of media including film, music and even video games over his long career, but was best known for his now iconic (and Oscar winning) xenomorph designs in Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi Alien. This week's trailer is dedicated to one of the greatest artistic minds of our time.
