Horror movies need not be scary. If you're an up-and-coming actor or actress, horror movies are your best friend. Just ask these now mega famous celebs, who had no problem making audiences jump in their seats.

Julia plays a medical student who conducts near-death experiments to see what the afterlife’s all about. The film also starred Kevin Bacon and Kiefer Sutherland (also medical students).
