to Kane Hodder recently and he informed me that
some stunt work on the film and that the movie is

SID HAIG- The film is slated to be released on

behind this; theyíre sinking a lot of money into

William Forsythe, Tyler Mane, Priscilla Barnes,
Railsback and Mary Woronov. Sorry if I missed
HODGE- The first Rob Zombie film had a very
line of merchandise ranging from- Shirts,
masks, posters, action figures, stickers,
etc. One piece of Merchandise Iíd love to see
make for the franchise is a video game. Kinda
they did with the Evil Dead video games. Has
ever been any talk of producing a video game
the Rob Zombie movies?
SID HAIG- Yes there has, and a company actually
started on the game. Rob didnít like the

about DVD extra in the horror community that
Can fans expect another hilarious Captain
warm welcome when Devilís Rejectís gets
SID HAIG- I doubt that very seriously. First of
because The Devilís Rejects isnít laced as
with humour as the first one was. There is
it, but it isnít a primary element in the
Secondly, because Rob doesnít like to do the same
thing twice. So the DVD I donít know what to
there. I never know what to expect. We all just

licensing board. Theyíre too damn cheap to spend
money. Yes, I still do hypnotize people, and I
make them do anything that they normally wouldnít
anyway. As a matter of fact, I donít make them
anything. I help them to do what it is they want
HODGE- Iíve also read that you were once a
the late 50ís band The T-Birds, who released the
single Fullhouse. What prompted you to switch
professions from a musician to an actor?
SID HAIG- Because, at that point in time, the
business was full of crooks, robbers, thieves and
nefarious people of ill repute. I basically
make any money. I was busting my ass and really
wasnít seeing anything so I got out.
HODGE- While on the topic of music, you were
a guest at the first ever Rock & Shock Horror
Music convention(featuring ICP, MISFITS, ETC).

1000 Corpses and Spider Baby. However, youíve
landed roles in nearly every movie genre. Out of
the films youíve appeared in, which one are you
most fond of?
SID HAIG- I donít like to say Iím most fond of
Iím most fond of that. Itís like having a best
friend that means all of your other friends are
crap. A film that I had a lot of fun on because
was a childhood dream of mine to be as a kid was
Swashbuckler with Robert Shaw and James Earl
HODGE- Well, that about does it for my questions
I really appreciate this opportunity to interview

years now. I canít wait to see The Devilís
