About Sid Haig



Sid Haig boasts an impressive legacy in horror and schlock films, with high-points ranging from Spider Baby (1968) to Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses (2003) and The Devil's Rejects (2005). Trained in acting at the Pasadena Playhouse, he first appeared in films in 1960 and shows no sign of slowing down. Periodically working with low-budget legend Roger Corman, his work ranges from classic blaxploitation to James Bond and many television and theater appearances.

Working with Zombie appears to have re-invigorated his horror career, as his recent events include the low-budget yawners Night of the Living Dead 3D (2006) sort of remake and Brotherhood of Blood (2007) (no offense, Sid). He thankfully reprised (in voice) his role as Captain Spaulding in Zombie's animated The Haunted World of El Superbeasto (2009).

Seeminly gruff and unapproachable at times, a genial charity supporter and perinneal acting teacher, Sid has become a horror icon.
