Big Hollywood Stars in Their Early Horror Roles

Happy Halloween

After almost a two minute scene featuring George Clooney in 1987's Return to Horror High the following mash-up video from Flavorwire features several big name actors in their early horror film roles. I'm sure many of them have probably forgotten these films, but once reminded could probably tell you some fantastic stories.

The video was edited by Flavorwire's Jason Bailey to the tune of John Lennon's "Scared".

The names included in the video in order of appearance are: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Steve McQueen, Jennifer Connelly, Jennifer Aniston, Julianne Moore, Isla Fisher, James McAvoy, Keira Knightley, Naomi Watts, Sharon Stone, Johnny Depp, Patricia Arquette, Laurence Fishburne, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Dana Carvey, Paul Rudd, Michelle Williams, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ted Danson, Holly Hunter, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Viggo Mortensen, Matthew McConaughey, Renee Zellweger, Jessica Alba, Leonardo DiCaprio, Angela Bassett, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Jack Black, Bill Maher, Tom Hanks and Jack Nicholson

    Jack was also in the original Little Shop of Horrors 3 years before The Terror shown here..

  • G-Man

    Jason Alexander in "The Burning" always comes to mind. Underrated 80s slasher.

    Also, not as good of a movie, but is always funny seeing Jennifer Aniston in "Leprechaun".

    Evangeline Lily threw me off in Freddy vs Jason.

    Also wasn't Bill Maher in Nightmare 3?

  • Ravenous

    Jim Carrey was in a horror/comedy called Once Bitten in 1985 with Lauren Hutton. Terrible film!
