Here's the question: Name one actress who has been the star of a classic horror movie, maybe even played the role of the monster, who has grown up to be B. E. A. YOO-tiful.

Your answer most likely would be Drew Barrymore or Christina Ricci, eh?


Turns out, there's a whole boat load of good lookin' actors and actresses out there who played the role of that ghostly kid/creepy kid/possessed kid in that one awesome horror movie.

I'll be going over some of the good lookin' actresses, and leave the good lookin' actors to one of the good lookin' Moviepilot writer ladies!

Linda Blair (Regan – The Exorcist)

Then (1973)


Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan – Esther)

Then (2009)


Still pretty young, but pretty still!

Daveigh Chase (The Ring – Samara)

Then (2002)


Chloë Grace Moretz (The Amityville Horror – Chelsea)

Then (2005)


She was also Carrie in Carrie, but 3 years ago is hardly enough time for a then and now list!

Drew Barrymore (Firestarter – Charlie)

Then (1984)


Christina Ricci (Wednesday – The Addams Family)

Then (1991)


Anna Faris (Scary Movie – Cindy)

Then (2000)


This one was iffy, since Anna was 24 when Scary Movie came out. But holy Mrs. Chris Pratt look at her now! Hard to believe that bombshell's gonna be 40 this year.

Lina Leandersson (Let the Right One In – Eli)

Then (2008)


Michelle Williams (Species – Young Sil)

Then (1995)


Species isn't really a horror movie persay, but there's plenty of gore in it., well this:

Mila Kunis (Piranha – Susie)

Then (1995)



Kirsten Dunst (Interview with the Vampire – Claudia)

Then (1994)


In 10-20 years, maybe someone will write about the kids starring in the new Poltergeist, Paranormal Activity, etc. Who knows, m...yeah I'll stop now, feelin' kinda creepy.

Until then, goodbye, boys and ghouls!
