H.R. Giger Has Passed Away

13 May 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

According to multiple reports coming out of Switzerland, H.R. Giger has passed away at the age of 74. Sandra Mivelaz, administrator of the H.R. Giger museum, told reporters that Giger died in a hospital yesterday after sustaining injuries from a fall at his museum.

Born in 1940, Swiss surrealist Hans Rudolf Giger had a style that was instantly recognizable and can be seen in everything from paintings and sculptures, to movies, furniture, guitars, tattoos, album covers, and more. He won an academy award for his work on Alien and contributed designs for Poltergeist II, Species, Batman Forever, and a number of other movies.

H.R. Giger’s work has been influencing artists for decades, and his work will continue to induce nightmares and influence a new generation of artists for years to come.

Here is an excerpt from Clive Barker’s introduction in H.R. Giger’s Necronomicon I, talking about Giger’s work »

Harold Ramis Has Passed Away

24 February 2014 9:55 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We’re sad to report that Harold Ramis has passed away at the age of 69. According to his wife, Erica Mann Ramis, and the Chicago Tribune, Harold’s passing was due to “complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves swelling of the blood vessels.”

Harold Ramis was born on November 21st, 1944 in Chicago, Illinois. The writer, director, and actor is probably best known by horror fans for his role as Egon in Ghostbusters, but he has built up an incredible body of work that includes directing Groundhog Day, Caddyshack, and Analyze This.

While a private service is planned for this week, it is said that a private memorial will take place in Chicago in May. Our thoughts go out to Harold Ramis’ family and friends. He will truly be missed by those who knew him personally and those who were influenced by his work. We’ll update »
