Prince of Darkness (1987)
Alice Cooper made up for his appearance in the abysmal 1984 werewolf movie Monster Dog — yep, that really is the title — by cameo-ing as a possessed bum in John Carpenter's creepy, underappreciated homage to cult British screenwriter Nigel Kneale.

Any film in which James Woods is not the perviest person onscreen is always worth checking out — doubly so when it's Blondie singer Debbie Harry who's the person out-kinking him, as she is in David Cronenberg's bizarre trip of a horror movie.

House of 1,000 Corpses (2003)
Rob Zombie made his directorial debut with this highly controversial — and Rainn Wilson-featuring — gorefest. Since then, he has brought us 2005's Corpses sequel The Devil's Rejects, 2007's Halloween, 2009's Halloween II, and 2012's The Lords of Salem. What, you thought a guy called ''Rob Zombie'' was going to make romantic comedies?
