  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Writer/director Belinda Sallin’s documentary about Giger was filmed during the last years of the artist’s life, his mobility already curtailed, so her documentary is somewhat housebound. But what a house!
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘Dark Star: H.R. Giger’s World’ is an in-depth documentary that is interested in more than just the famous artist who was recruited to design the creature in ‘Alien.’
  • Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film
  • Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Este documentário pretende mostrar o homem além do artista e leva-nos a conhecer o caminho-de-ferro que fez em casa, a boa relação mantida com a ex-mulher, as viagens a muito custo para homenagens, o museu que lhe foi dedicado num castelo… em suma, as pequenas coisas que nos ajudam a conhecer um homem quase normal por trás de uma lenda temida.

    • Excerpt: [VIDEO ESSAY] “Dark Star: H.R. Giger’s World” provides an intimate window into the creative process and vibrant workplace of an artist whose originality and boundless imagination is beyond the beyond.
  • Andrew Wyatt @ St. Louis Magazine
    • Excerpt: Dark Star possesses an unmistakably elegiac quality, and Giger aficionados will likely find it a stimulating but melancholy experience.
