Maailma on menettänyt paljon.

Let history record that just last month Sid Haig showed up for the Scares That Care charity event, flying cross country and taking care of his fans even when he was having trouble walking. He loved the horror family as much as horror loved him.@Shudder @kinky_horror pic.twitter.com/ghgro55VcY

Deeply saddened to learn of Sid Haig’s passing this morning. Whom I was first introduced to on the set of @RobZombie’s house of 1000 corpses. Sid was a vibrant spirit with a passion for this industry like no other, he will be sorely missed. Goodbye my friend 🥺🖤 pic.twitter.com/KezSbppgKe
