Sid Haig's Captain Spaulding is on Death Row in Latest 3 from Hell Preview Clip

This new footage is a refreshing change of pace, as the character had taken a bit of backseat in recent previews.

If there's one thing that's true about the lead-up to Rob Zombie's 3 from Hell, it's that we just haven't seen enough of the iconic Captain Spaulding, as portrayed by Sid Haig. Thankfully, that changed today with the release of a new preview clip centered almost entirely on everybody's favorite sadistic clown. Go ahead and give that clip a watch above. What are you waiting for? Do I stutter?

Fan service and speculation about the extent of Haig's role in the new movie aside, it's not all good news from the actor's camp right now. As we mentioned on social media over the weekend, Haig was in an accident and is currently being treated for unknown injuries in the intensive care unit at a hospital. We don't have any updates to share right now, but the actor is in our thoughts as we hope for good news regarding his speedy recovery from whatever he is battling through. Get well soon, Sid!
