Haig was mostly known for his roles in films such as House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and 3 From Hell but had an acting career spanning back to 1960 including over 150 titles.

Whilst the Oscars have a storied past when it comes to avoiding horror nominations, it is especially poignant when such a respected actor to the genre is overlooked for something as important as a memorial.
