Have you ever wondered how your favorite celebrities were first noticed? Most actors at one point in their career have appeared in some pretty bad movies. They usually do so early on in their acting careers and quite often it's their first acting gig on the big screen. No matter how great of an actor they are, like everyone else on the planet, celebrities have to start somewhere, and like most young people, no matter what your profession is, they tend to take undesirable jobs in hopes of opening up doors to further their careers.
There are many factors involved in making a film, and often enough when a film is bad, the actors get a bad wrap for starring in them. However, there are so many contributing components involved that can add to the failure of a movie besides just poor acting. There is bad direction, bad plot, bad scripts, low budgets, and a list of other factors involved. Actually, sometimes in a poorly made movie, the only decent thing about it is the performances of certain actors. In fact, some of the actors on this list were noticed early on in their careers because of their incredible acting in overall bad movies and have since grown to become the leading actors in Hollywood today.
Here is our list of 10 amazing actors who have appeared in terrible horror movies:
10 Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt's first major starring movie role was in the 1989 teenage slasher flick, Cutting Class. The film is your typical '80s high school horror movie, a killer is on the loose, murdering students and teachers, and like many '80s horror movies, it's more comical than scary. Now, 26 years after starring in Cutting Class, Pitt has established himself as one of the most famous Hollywood actors of our generation. Although he didn't start out with mega hits, through the years he has been in a number of memorable films like Se7en, Fight Club, Troy and Ocean's 11.
9 Demi Moore
8 George Clooney
7 Matthew McConaughey
6 Henry Fonda
5 Ben Kingsley
4 Leonardo DiCaprio
3 Michael Caine
2 Viggo Mortensen
1 Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks has proven himself an incredible actor in a number of memorable films like Forrest Gump, Cast Away, and Apollo 13, to name just a few brilliant examples. But like everybody, you have to start somewhere, and Hanks' first role ever was in the 1980 slasher horror film He Knows You're Alone. Hanks played a psychologist named Elliot, and his character was originally written to be killed off. But that soon changed when the directors saw how charismatic Hanks was, and as a result of his acting, his death seen was cut out.
