Sid Haig plays a vampire in The Brotherhood of Blood
5th Dec 05
He's one of our favourites here at eatmybrains, never more so than now following his great appearance in Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects which has seemingly brought upon a career resurgence for the great actor Sid Haig, or Saig as we like to call him.
Following news that Saig is appearing in the 3D makeover of Night of the Living Dead (see earlier news here, news has cropped up that he has also just wrapped on a new movie called The Brotherhood of Blood, in which he plays a vampire.
Sid Haig on the press release: "It was very interesting playing my very first vampire, who, basically, is king of the vampires and is over 1000 years old.
The production was run very smoothly. I think itís a very good script and the writers/directors were very organized and, I felt, gave me what I needed to do my job.".
The film was written by Michael Roesch and Peter Scheerer (House of Dead 2) and also stars another favourite of ours, and Devil's co-star Ken Foree.
The Brotherhood of the Blood is about a vampire huntress whose clan is wiped out by something more evil than the bloodsuckers; a demon called Vlad Kossei.
Even the vamps are afraid of him, but heís not able to regain his full power until he kills his brother. The huntress sets out to stop him before itís too late.
9th Nov 04 Overall, the film has an uneasy and very sinister feel about it. Hittites donít need to do anything to look scary, especially Isiah, which sees Borgnine in a role similar to the Beelzebub-worshipping...
