Horror Actor Sid Haig Has Died at 80


Sid Haig, the actor best known for his role as Captain Spaulding in Rob Zombie’s movies (House Of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and the recently released 3 From Hell), has passed away at age 80.

Haig died on Saturday, September 21. He had been absent from the film’s debut in L.A. last week after suffering what he deemed a “nasty spill” in a since-deleted Instagram post, resulting in an emergency room visit and an eventual admission to the ICU for breathing issues. No specific cause of death has been publicly revealed.

Posting on Sid’s Instagram account, his wife Suzie broke the news of his death early this morning:

“On Saturday, September 21, 2019, my light, my heart, my true love, my King, the other half of my soul, Sidney, passed from this realm on to the next. He has returned to the Universe, a shining star in her heavens. He was my angel, my husband, my best friend and always will be. He adored his family, his friends and his fans. This came as a shock to all of us.

We, as a family, are asking that our privacy and time to mourn be respected.

“Sidney Eddie Mosesian
7/14/39 – 9/21/19
Husband, Father, Grandfather, Friend.
Goodnight, my love. We will find each other again, next time. I love you.”

On behalf of everyone at MetalSucks, we wish Sid’s family, friends and colleagues (including the Zombie team) all the best.
