After Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony, this weekend's horror movie Mama doesn't just star Jessica Chastain but "Golden Globe winner" Jessica Chastain. It might seem strange to see an award-winning actress in a horror movie, but the trend of respected actors taking roles in horror movies is on the rise. Just last year, Oscar–nominated actor Ethan Hawke (Training Day) starred in supernatural horror-thriller Sinster while Golden Globe-nominated Rebecca Hall (Vicky Christina Barcelona) appeared in British ghost story movie The Awakening.
Of course, horror movies have historically been a place where actors often get their start. In fact, a surprising amount of Hollywood stars and Academy Award winners and nominees have started their careers in the horror genre, and, in fact, some are still working in the genre.
