In this eminently creepy horror show, college student Hee-jin returns home in the wake of her younger sister’s disappearance, only to find her mother a fanatical religious convert and the family’s neighbors offing themselves in increasingly bizarre and grotesque ways. Together with detective Tae-hwan, Hee-jin must unravel the tangled web of connections between the victims that will lead back to the missing girl.
When we started Visions of Horror, we did so with the intention of featuring exceptional artwork by horror artists who have made an undeniable mark on the industry. But only few have had such a profound impact on popular culture like VoH’s latest featured artist, H.R. Giger. Due to his unforgettable — and highly uncomfortable — inclinations towards powerfully fetishizing the biopunk subgenre, his beautifully dark, and nightmarishly erotic, imagery has become a widely recognized staple of modern science fiction and horror.
Most notably celebrated for his work on Ridley Scott’s Alien, this editorial will look at H.R. Giger’s “Necronomicon”, the art book that inspired many visual aspects of the famous franchise, which ultimately earned him an Academy Award for “Best Achievement for Visual Effects”. READ MORE
Have you always wanted a sweet H.R. Giger-esque Xenomorph ring that transforms into brass knuckles? Of course you did, which is why Etsy seller Kilroysattic created one!
Below Kilroysattic gives his first demonstration of how the “Xenomorph Folding Brass Knuckle Ring” operates. He explains: “The next update available for sale will have complete surface detailing, a more polish finish and be pressure casted in smooth-ons indestructible resin. Anticipate a follow up demo on that version as will as alternative forms for this folding brass knuckle ring concept.” This is the prototype. Look for it at his store soon.

When I was at the San Diego Comic-Con back in July was able to get a glimpse of Hudson from these NECA Aliens figurines but now you can catch a glimpse of a Xenomorph, Hicks and various in-process sculpts from the re-launch of their Aliens product line. Thanks to Collider for the heads up.
Per Neca, “Hicks and Hudson stand nearly 7″ tall and feature over 30 points of articulation!! The marines include signature weapons including the pulse rifle, shotgun, welder, motion tracker, and shoulder lamp. Incredibly detailed and photo realistic portrait sculpts are sure to impress. Last but not least is the all-new Aliens Warrior which stands over 9″ tall and has over 30 points of articulation including a bendable tail, hinged jaw, and sliding inner mouth. This version of the Warrior features the brown costume highlights and a glossy wet appearance.” They followed up, “there will be more than one Hicks and more than one Hudson. Different heads & different accessories. Not all released at once.”

I’ve been playing guitar for about 14 years now and I’m a sucker for guitar porn. Looking at guitars can make me get a little antsy in my pantsy, if you know what I mean. But in all seriousness, I’m a huge fan of custom guitars, both in terms of hardware as much as in artistic creation. My interest stems from me taking my first guitar, a ’97 Epiphone Special 1 (back when that model was a solid guitar), and completely redoing all the hardware. Actually, I might show you that one day.
But moving to the article, below you’ll find pictures of a guitar (what looks like an Ibanez) that Gig Goldstein has carved into an astonishing homage to H.R. Giger and the Xenomorphs from aliens. Even the volume and tone knobs are unique (they’re little egg sacs). Overall, it’s an awesome guitar and I would give quite a bit to rock that bad boy on a regular basis. Check below for quotes from Gig and pictures of the guitar. READ MORE
