FILE - In this June 29, 2007 file picture Swiss artist H.R. Giger poses with two of his works at the art museum in Chur, Switzerland. H.R. Giger, who designed the creature in Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror classic "Alien," has died at age 74 from injuries suffered in a fall. Sandra Mivelaz, administrator of the H.R. Giger museum in Chateau St. Germain told The Associated Press Tuesday May 13, 2014 that Giger had died in a hospital the day before. Giger received a 1979 Academy Award for special effects in 'Alen'. Giger's works, often showing macabre scenes of humans and machines fused into hellish hybrids, influenced a generation of movie directors and inspired an enduring fashion for "biomechanical" tattoos.
