Demi Moore, George Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Connelly, John Travolta, Johnny Depp, Katherine Heigl, Matthew Mcconaughey, Nightmare On Elm Street, Patricia Arquette, Robert Englund and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Saturday 1st April 2000

MOVIE HORROR SHOWS Just when you thought it was safe to tread back on the red carpet - these celebrities skeletons have finally come out of the closet and it's not a pretty sight. Johnny Depp might have been a swashbuckler recently and George Clooney is regularly voted Sexiest Man alive - but these stars and more had movie debuts that were less dream role and more Nightmare On Elm Street. They will probably cringe when they watch themselves in the horror film-fest to mark Halloween this weekend. And it's not just the males. All the scares, the blood and the guts were too much for the delicate dispositions of Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl and Patricia Arquette that they forgot to act. But who had the most embarrassing horror movie role? The competition is tough: Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987) - Patricia Arquette, Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp. Parasite (1982) - James Davidson, Demi Moore. Phenomena (1985) aka Creepers - Jennifer Connelly. Carrie (1976) - Nancy Allen, John Travolta. A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) - Nick Corri, Amanda Wyss, Johnny Depp, Heather Langekamp. The Return of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1994) - Matthew Mcconaughey. Bride of Chucky (1998) - Nick Stabile, Katherine Heigl. In Return to Horror High (1987) - George Clooney. Leprechaun (1993) - Jennifer Aniston, Mark Holton, Ken Olandt.
