Well, a secret that I have been keeping away from all of you for so long is that I am a horror movie buff. Horror movies are my thing and I try to delve out a lot of lesser known once also apart from the popular ones. Anyways, today I thought of jotting down a list of major Hollywood A-listers who had starred in non-substantial roles in some Horror flicks in their struggling days. I have not done any research on this, I have just watched these movies and was quite startled to find the transformations these stars had gone through.
Friday the 13th/Kevin Bacon: This 1980 slasher movie gave rise to Jason Voorhese, a new terror for the teens, and also saw Kevin Bacon in a miniscule role of a young man who gets killed in one of the most grotesque fashion, while getting intimate with his girlfriend!! Bacon, although not your conventional star, went on to become a big name as a baddie in many hit flicks later on.
Idle Hands/Jessica Alba: Released in 1999, this flick was a horror comedy one where a teenager is attacked by a hand. Weird story line and weird performances, and Jessica Alba in the role of the high school hottie and the hero's love interest!! Alba, who later went on to become one of the hottest stars of our time was the damsel in distress in this horror flick.
Children of the Corn 3/Charlize Theron: This 1995 film did not give us much, except Charlize Theron, who is one of the most powerful performers of our time, with Oscar credits.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Ben Affleck/Hillary Swank: 2 blink and miss performers who later on went to win Oscars, thats what Buffy gave us. Both Hillary and Ben are powerful actors of these days.
Nightmare on Elm Street: This movie gave us one of the most horrific concepts (read getting killed in your dreams), Freddie Krueger and Johny Depp, as a confused teenager who becomes prey to the baddy Freddie. Who knew then that we will get The Johny Depp!!
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation/Renée Zellweger, Matthew McConaughey: Well well, one of the most badly made remakes of the Texas Chainsaw series, this flick saw Zellweger as the whining scream queen and McConaughey as an annoyingly screaming psychotic killer.
There are some other stars like Michelle Williams, Kirsten Stewart, George Clooney and Naomi Watts who had also their fair share of Nottie acts in horror flicks, But I have just restricted it to sexy 6.
