Art: Alien by N.C. Winters

H.R. Giger’s Xenomorph might be one of horror’s most terrifying creations—a perfect design that came to life in 1979 with Ridley Scott’s Alien. This piece by N.C. Winters is a killer, displaying the nightmarish anatomy of the Xeno in excellent detail. There’s so much inspiration to draw from when looking at the film—the iconic chest-bursting scene, Ash turning out to be an android (one of my favorite moments of any film ever), or Ripley blasting the alien into space through an open airlock—but as brilliant as all of that is, it’s entirely fueled by Giger’s Xenomorph. So it’s more than fitting that Winters chose to pay tribute to it here.

The poster will be on sale as an extended timed edition release, available now at Mondo and running through May 19th when Alien: Covenant is released in theaters.

If you are ever attacked by a gorilla just sit back and relax while you enjoy the once in a life time feeling of your limbs being ripped off.

  1. Dude, that poster is so sick. Alien is my favorite movie and I have a lot of love for the franchise including the stinkers. I’ve got a mini Alien collection in my home. This would be damn cool looking on my walls…

    1. It too is one of my favorite films, and I even prefer it over Aliens (although, I do love that movie). You should totally grab this poster while you can, then. Sounds like it will go perfectly with your collection!
