It seems like strange horror movie cameos are about as integral to the genre as jump scares and creepy kids. From major stars playing unusual roles to non-Hollywood celebrities lending their star power to screamfests, here's a fond look back at the weirdest horror movie cameos of all time.
If you've ever thought to yourself that Fabio, with his heavenly eyes and flowing hair, looks like an angel, you're not alone. The filmmakers behind 1990's The Exorcist III apparently thought so too. They cast the young heartthrob in his first U.S. role as an angel. Another bizarre cameo in the film comes courtesy of NBA star Patrick Ewing, who appears as the Angel of Death. Both characters show up onscreen during a surreal dream sequence that features an angel leading a big band, a train station that seems to be heaven, and other random acts of chaos and madness. But that's not all, The Exorcist III has plenty of other odd celebrity cameos, including Samuel L. Jackson, Larry King and, perhaps most strangely, former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop.
Despite its unique cameos and terrifying premise, the film received a lukewarm response from critics. It seems like when you're making a second sequel to arguably the best horror movie ever made, you have to make it stranger if you can't make it any scarier.
