On a Mountain of Skulls, in the Castle of Pain, the Real Voice of Vigo the Carpathian Sat on a Throne of Blood [Video]

In Ghostbusters II, Wilhelm von Homburg‘s vocal performance as Vigo the Carpathian was famously dubbed by Max von Sydow after filming was completed. Though Homburg looked the part precisely, he just didn’t do quite as well when it came to his lines. Homburg wasn’t aware that his voice had been replaced, and he stormed out of the cast and crew screening of the film when he found out. How bad was his take, though? Thanks to William Forsche, a member of the film’s crew, you can watch the above video to find out why they decided to replace Homburg’s voice.
