Who Is A Horror Movie Actor Who Carried The Entire Movie On Their Back?

"And the Oscar for SPOOKIEST BABE goes to..."

For some reason that is completely beyond my understanding, actors in horror movies are often overlooked when it comes to the big awards shows. I hate it!!!

So, with that in mind, who is one actor in a horror movie who definitely deserved more credit for their performance? One who all but carried the entire film on their back?

TriStar Pictures

Maybe you still can't believe Skeet Ulrich wasn't acknowledged for his chilling portrayal of Billy Loomis in Scream (1996).

Dimension Films

Or perhaps the fact that Lupita Nyong'o was completely overlooked for her incredible performance as TWO SEPARATE PEOPLE in Us (2019) still keeps you up at night.

Universal Studios

Heck, maybe your pick is from a movie that doesn't get enough credit for being great in general, like Nicole Kidman in The Others (2001).

Dimension Films
