11 Good Actors Who Showed Up in Bad Horror Movies
A new horror movie called Annabelle just came out. It’s about a possessed doll. I haven’t seen the movie, but I can confidently tell you it’s terrible. That’s partly because it’s getting bad reviews and partly because I saw a trailer for it in the movie theater a couple of months ago and was 100% convinced it was a spoof movie. But it’s not. And yet Alfre Woodard stars in it. Alfre “Usually I’m a Respected Actress” Woodard. I’m so disappointed.
But it’s not the first time I’ve been disappointed by a good actor starring in a bad horror movie. It happens on a pretty regular basis, especially since the new millennium has brought us so many crappy additions to the genre. Is it just me, or does every single horror movie advertised on TV look the same as the last one? It’s just a bunch of sinister little girls and people walking like crabs. Yawn.
Join me on this journey through good actors’ bad horror movie decisions. Sure, everybody needs money, but really? There were no other options?
