Rest In Peace, Sid Haig, Horror Film Icon


Legendary film actor Sid Haig passed away on September 21, 2019, at the age of 80. Sad news, indeed. I’m no expert on the entire film career of Sid Haig; however, his role as Captain Spaulding featured in Rob Zombie‘s House Of 1000 Corpses and The Devils Rejects has left a terrifying impression on me which will last forever.

For me, Captain Spaulding epitomizes the ultimate demonic character I’ve ever witnessed on film. That says a ton and again it’s my opinion. His serial killer role came across to me as being too real; where so many other villains of film are either too outlandish or cartoonish. I’ve yet to see the newest addition to Rob Zombie’s trilogy of terror: 3 From Hell. Without a doubt, I will see this new film of bloody gore! The Rob Zombie films aside, I am eager to look back on other Sid Haig films which I have missed over the years. May Sid Haig rest in peace or continue his soul journey, wherever he may be. Metal be thy name. – Stone
