Top 11 Sinister Appearances by Hollywood Stars in Horror
Elijah Wood – Maniac (2012)
While he'd already shown us an affinity for the twisted with his performance as the perverted Kevin in Sin City (2005), Wood pulls out all the stops in Franck Khalfoun's phenomenal Maniac remake with a frighteningly effective performance that bleeds sheer psychosis from the screen. A docile Hobbit no more, with Maniac Wood proves himself a genre figure to be reckoned with.
So, which other Hollywood marquee names can you think of that have cemented themselves in your memory for a genre-centric performance? Sound off below! In the meantime here's another look at Ethan Hawke in Sinister.
Ten years ago, true crime writer Ellison Oswald (Hawke) made his reputation with a best-selling account of a notorious murder. Now, desperate to replicate the success of his first book, he moves his family into a home where the previous occupants were brutally executed and a child disappeared, hoping to find inspiration in the crime scene. In the home, Ellison discovers a cache of terrifying home movies, unwittingly opening the door into a nightmarish mystery.
