Afraid of clowns?
I can’t imagine why.”

Sid Haig
Actor, hypnotherapist, clown.
July 14, 1939 – September 21, 2019.
Aged 80 years.

Most recognized for: Sid had given up on acting. After 3 decades in the biz, he’d become bored with being typecast as the B-movie bad guy… going so far as to turn down the role of Marsellus Wallace in “Pulp Fiction.” But Rob Zombie resurrected Mr. Haig to play Captain Spaulding in 2003’s “House of 1000 Corpses”… elevating him from B to B+ status and granting him cult fandom in the world of deliberately sh!tty horror films.
