Friends and colleagues are mourning the death of actor Sid Haig after his wife announced that he died over the weekend at the age of 80.

The horror icon is best known for his work in Rob Zombie's cult classics like "House of 1000 Corpses" and "The Devil's Rejects."

Actors, producers and directors shared their grief on social media to react to the death of the actor.
