Marilyn Burns Has Passed Away

5 August 2014 10:20 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We’re sad to report that Marilyn Burns has passed away at the age of 65. According to TMZ, Marilyn Burns passed away at her home in Texas. The cause of death has not been revealed at this time.

Marilyn Burns is best known by horror fans for playing the lead role of Sally Hardesty in Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Coined as one of the original “Scream Queens”, Marilyn earned the title in grand fashion in the role of Sally. She brought realistic fear to the screen while being chased by Leatherface through the woods and while sitting at the dinner table with the cannibal clan. Her mix of relieved laughter and primal screaming at the end of the film lingers long after the end credits roll. There’s no doubt that Marilyn deserves great credit for complimenting a terrific script and sure-handed directing with »

Dick Smith Has Passed Away

31 July 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We’re sad to report that according to a statement made by his close friend and mentee, Rick Baker, legendary makeup artist Dick Smith has passed away at the age of 92. 

Rick Baker made the announcement via Twitter early this morning:

“The master is gone. My friend and mentor Dick Smith is no longer with us. The world will not be the same.”

Born in 1922, Richard Emerson “Dick” Smith was the master behind a multitude of iconic makeup effects. He began his makeup career in television in the 1940′s before later expanding to the world of film. Smith made memorable movie transformations possible with his innovative makeup applications and styles in a plethora of projects, including The Godfather (1972), Taxi Driver (1976), and Scanners (1981), to name just a few of many.

Horror fans likely best remember Dick Smith from the remarkable job he did transforming the innocent-looking Linda Blair into the pale-faced demon in 1973′s The Exorcist. »

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 »
