Haig on Superbeasto & Spider Baby Redux

Sid as SpauldingThere’s so very much that can be said about Sid Haig. Here’s a guy with a career that most actors only dream about. I mean come on, he’s worked with everyone from the great Lon Chaney, Jr. to Rob Zombie. Speaking of which …

Fangoria got word from Sid concerning the reprisal of the role that put him back on the cinema map, Captain Spaulding, in Rob Zombie’s upcoming The Haunted World of El Superbeasto.

“It’s not a very big scene at all; it takes place in a bar,” Haig tells Fango. “It’s crazy, it’s wacky, it’s a lot of fun. It was kind of like doing voice-overs for a [live-action] film, but it was cool, because the characters are so out there that we had a chance to ad-lib some stuff and carry on a little bit. I can’t wait to see the whole thing completed.”

Sid also shed some light on his involvement with Jeff Broadstreet’s proposed Spider Baby remake …

“Jeff has talked about it, but certainly not to my agent or to me in any way at all,” says Haig. “So I don’t know if that’s wishful thinking or whatever, but nothing has really been said.”

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Broadstreet is horrible, so I doubt he’ll be able to live up in any degree to Hill.

    A “Spider-Baby” remake does not sound like a good idea at all.

    Banner who?

    Bah, they can keep making all the crappy wannabes all they want, “Spider Baby” remains the best. I’ll pass on watching the remake. No way can anyone top Banner’s performance. As for El Superbeasto, I’ll consider watching it. Maybe.
