House of a 1000 Corpses - Captain Spaulding

A lunatic, killer clown who runs a gas station, museum, and chicken restaurant? Yep that sounds just mighty fine to me! Hailing from the 2003 throwback horror film House of 1000 Corpses directed by the man of many talents, Rob Zombie, this insane but also tremendously chatty clown named Captain Spaulding steals the show. Portrayed by renowned character actor, Sid Haig, Spaulding is the spider that sets the trap for the unsuspecting young people crossing Texas who are just not bright enough to realize they have landed in his sinister web until it is way too late. But how damn cool is the Murder Ride in his Frankenstein's Monster of a store?! I'd ride it, that much I can assure you of. If this were a ride at the annual Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios then it'd be like "Here! Take all my moneys!" Because that is a ride I can get behind. Anyway this clown is funny and intense and despite his murderous behavior he still seems like a guy you could sit down and have a beer with at some crummy dive bar.
