Anyway! Here are 10 performances that I feel haven’t received the credit they deserve. I wanted the focus to be on actors performances--so if you thought that film kinda blowed, well then, think back or watch the actors performance instead! Most likely, there are probably roles in here that get a fair amount of credit in the horror community but may be ignored beyond the horror world. No specific order!
10. Joe Spinell as Frank Zito in ManiacI didn't really dig the movie Maniac too much but I can respect Joe Spinell's creation and role! He was a real creepy, sleaze bag who stalked women then killed them brutally. *SPOILER* He scalped the women and slapped the top of the hair/head on a mannequin in his grungy apartment. Mr. Spinell's performance impressed clown serial killer John Wayne Gacy so much, that he requested that he play him in a biopic! Sadly, Joe Spinell passed away in 1989 when he bled to death after accidentally cutting himself during a heart attack. May he RIP.
9.) Desmond Harrington as Jack Ferriman in Ghost ShipI know a lot of people hated this film but I really liked it. He surprised me in this film, a must see!
8.) Nick Damici as Mister in Stake LandI thought he did a great job! He was mysterious yet very affective in this film.
7.) Naomie Harris as Selena in 28 Days LaterNot only was she strong but she was a straight up beast and was quick to attack anyone and I mean ANYONE who was infected with the virus!
6.) Marcia Gay Harden as Mrs. Carmody in The MistShe aggravated my life throughout this movie....so of course, if she had that affect, she definitely needed to be on the list!
5.) Bobby Rhodes as Tony the Pimp in DemonsA powerful pimp in a movie I consider a classic! "You look like you afraid of breakin things... like this!" Need I say more?
4.) Louis Tripp as Terry in The GateThis movie used to really creep me out when I was younger! I know that a lot of people remember Stephen Dorff being in this film but what about the kid who played his friend? Louis Tripp aka Terry! That whole eyeball in his palm thing was very disturbing!
3.) Ty Burrell as Steve Marcus in Dawn of the DeadI loved this remake of Dawn of the Dead because it was what a remake was supposed to be! Anyhow, Mr. Burrell in my opinion, stole the show! His performance was phenomenal and I wanted more of him!
2.) Cécile De France as Marie in Haute Tension or High TensionI'm not too sure if people seen this movie because whenever I mention it, they say they haven't! Whelp...you need to!
1.) Jennifer Carpenter as Angela Vidal in QuarantineI'd seen her in other movies/shows and she never really stuck out to me--that is until I saw this movie Quarantine! I loved her acting in this movie. Awesome job!
