Fortunately, there are directors like Jack Hill, Quinton Tarantino and Rob Zombie who had the good cinematic sense to utilize the talents of Sid Haig to benefit their own films.
Primarily cast as a bad guy, Sid Haig is a veteran of countless television shows and movies. His best work is with the three directors mentioned above where he is unforgettable in such low budget classics like Spider Baby, Coffy, Foxy Brown, Jackie Brown, House of 1000 Corpses and The Devils Rejects.
Sid Haig is a living legend among fans of cult cinema, but most mainstream movie goers are not familiar with his work. This is really a shame for his talent and experience should have earned him the chance in an A-list movie. Until then he'll just have to settle for Not Very Famous...but should be.
