10 Future A-List Actors Who Made Horror Movies

10 Future A-List Actors Who Made Horror Movies
We all have to start somewhere, right? Despite its history of cinema classics and major box office success, the horror genre is often maligned as somehow less worthy of respect than other types of films. For whatever reason, it's not as easy to get an A-list actor to headline a horror movie as it should be. But beggars can't be choosers. Plenty of Oscar-nomintaed thespians had no problem making horror flicks on the way up. Today, we're looking at 10 future A-List actors who made horror movies before they became big time celebrities.

Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger

There may be no greater example of the phenomenon we're talking about here than the fourth film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, which starred two future A-list actors and is demonstrative of the shrewd and cynical strategies of Hollywood. In 1994, relative unknowns Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger had already been in Dazed and Confused

'Freddy vs. Michael Myers': Can we please not, Robert Englund?

'Freddy vs. Michael Myers': Can we please not, Robert Englund?
Update (9/30/15 12:35 Pm Pt): Robert Englund on Tuesday exploded any suggestion that he'll reprise the role of Freddy Krueger with the following tweet: Just for the record, I will Not be starring as Freddy in any new Nightmare projects, real or fictional — Robert B. Englund (@RobertBEnglund) September 29, 2015 Original Story: Robert Englund made news out of some second-tier Comic Con over the weekend with the suggestion that -- contrary to prior indications -- he would be completely down to reprise the role of Freddy Krueger in another sequel. Truly, I don't know how to feel about this. The best "Elm Street" films were the ones that Craven was directly involved with (the original film, 1994's post-modern "New Nightmare" and even Part 3, "Dream Warriors"), and the horror master is no longer around for quality control purposes. But perhaps the most eyebrow-raising portion of Englund's comments came when he began pitching ideas

The 7 Best Kill Scenes from the Leprechaun Franchise!

Eleven years after the final installment in the original series, the Leprechaun franchise was brought back from the dead this week courtesy of Lionsgate and WWE Films, who together released Leprechaun: Origins (review) onto VOD outlets this past Tuesday.

The Warwick Davis incarnation of the titular character had a reign of terror that lasted from 1993 until 2003, the original franchise spanning seven installments that saw the Irish jokester taking a trip to Vegas, being shipped off to space and ridin’ dirty in tha hood on two separate occasions.

Needless to say, the Leprechaun has left a pretty large body count in his wake over the years, and in celebration of the reboot we wanted to shine the green spotlight on some of his most memorable slayings. So today we bring you the seven best kills from the original six Leprechaun films, which are the some of the wildest and most off

Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'

Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'
How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”

Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars,

Comic-Con Interview: Dylan Postl is Very Eager for You to See Leprechaun: Origins

Hours before the Leprechaun: Origins trailer debuted at Comic-Con, I sat down with a very excited Dylan Postl (aka WWE's Hornswoggle), the new actor slipping into the skin of the malevolent beast that kicked off a franchise with Leprechaun (starring Warwick Davis) and crashed and burned with Leprechaun: Back 2 Tha Hood in 2003. Over 10 years later, the series is getting rebooted under the direction of Zach Lipovsky and Postl is very eager to spread the word on the project which he says will defy expectations.

The Horror Fan's Bucket List: 9 Things Every Fan Must Do Before They Die

The Horror Fan's Bucket List: 9 Things Every Fan Must Do Before They Die
The sad truth about life is that none of us, save for Hulk Hogan, is immortal. We're all gonna die. Hopefully in less horrific ways than the fashion in which characters die in the movies we all spend so much time watching... but nevertheless, there's going to come a day where and each and every one of us meets up with the Grim Reaper. And I don't know about you, but I don't want to take unlived experiences to the grave with me. Which is why, like Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson before me, I keep my very own Bucket List in my desk drawer, a collection of different experiences I want to have, both big and small, before my time on this Earth is finished. It's unlikely that I'll ever cross all of them off, but I'm damn sure going to try.   In the event that you don't have

Zach Lipovsky to Direct Leprechaun Reboot

I’ve never actually seen any of the “Leprechaun” movies. No, that’s not true. I’ve never actually seen any of the “Leprechaun” movies all the way through. I think I saw one where he went into the ‘hood, which was called, appropriately enough, “Leprechaun in The Hood”. I don’t really recall what I saw, though I do remember that Ice-t was in it, and apparently the installment did enough business that the producers did a sequel to the sequel called “Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood”. I’m not sure why they decided to “slang out” the title, though, when they didn’t do it with the first “Hood” sequel. Creative decisions, I suppose. Check out the box art to your left if you think I’m making this up. I can assure you, I am not. See? Anyways, according to trade reports, the WWE and their partners

Opinion: 'Leprechaun' Is the Best Horror Series Ever Made

NextMovie kicks off Leprechaun Week today! Look for new "Leprechaun"-related content every day this week in the lead-up to St. Paddy's Day. Because it's what Leprechaun would have wanted ...

"I have not come to play with fruit. I just want me magic flute!"

So sayeth the ever-rhyming Irish demon played by Warwick Davis in "Leprechaun in the Hood" (2000) to the lusty cross-dressing Miss Fontaine (Lobo Sebastian). A little later, these two engage in a passionate romp under the sheets during which Miss Fontaine's cries of pain will be mistaken for gasps of orgasmic delight by at least one bewildered passer-by as the Leprechaun claims another victim.

It's astonishingly tasteless, crass and almost (almost) admirably brazen ... which kind of sums up the "Leprechaun" series in its entirety. And that's a pretty impressive entirety — there are six of the damn things in that pot of cinematic gold, after all.

Fresh details on Leprechaun reboot

News Louisa Mellor Jan 24, 2013

Studio boss promises Leprechaun reboot will be a "darker, more traditional horror" than people remember...

It's been almost a year since news of WWE/Lionsgate's planned Leprechaun franchise reboot reached us, and the idea is still going strong according to a new interview with WWE Studios President Michael Luisi.

Speaking to CraveOnline, Luisi confirmed that the project was still pushing ahead and that Lephrechaun fans can expect the new film's tone to be "a little darker, a little more traditional horror than the Warwick Davis ones that people remember." Seeing as the last in the Davis-starring franchise was the firmly tongue-in-cheek straight-to-video release Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood, getting darker and scarier won't be too hard we'd have imagined.

The reboot, which goes by the name of Leprechaun: Origins we're told, won't connect with the previous franchise mythology, and will star WWE's Dylan Postl as lead Lubdan,

WWE star Hornswoggle set for the Leprechaun reboot

The latest name to follow in the footsteps of professional wrestling icons such as Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Dwayne Johnson and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin by making the leap from the squared circle to the cinema screen is current WWE star Hornswoggle (a.k.a. Dylan Postl), with the mischievous grappler set to step into the shoes of Warwick Davis (Life's Too Short) for the lead in a reboot of the Leprechaun comedy-horror franchise, entitled Leprechaun: Origins.

Originally released in 1993, Leprechaun saw a pre-Friends Jennifer Aniston being stalked by Davis' malevolent mini-monster during his search for a stolen pot of gold. Despite being panned by critics, the low-budget film was a commercial success and went on to spawn five sequels of diminishing quality, including the likes of Leprechaun 4: In Space, Leprechaun: In the Hood and Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood. Last month, it was revealed

Exclusive Interview: Warwick Davis Reflects on Leprechaun Franchise, Harry Potter and More

Just when you thought it was safe to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, Lionsgate is unleashing a trio of cult classics that'll have you thinking twice about stealing any mysterious pots of gold you may find.

This weekend the cult classics Leprechaun in the Hood, Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood and Leprechaun 3 are all debuting on VOD in HD for the first time ever, and to mark the occasion, Dread Central had the distinct privilege of chatting with the Leprechaun himself, iconic actor Warwick Davis.

Since getting his start in the industry as Wicket in George Lucas' Return of the Jedi in 1983, Davis has starred in countless classic films including Willow and the entire Harry Potter series as well; but for those of you who fancy horror over fantasy, then undoubtedly you know Davis best as the evil mythological character who has been terrorizing anyone looking to steal his
