Scream Kings 2019, Day 20: Jeff Goldblum
Tonight's scream king, Jeff Goldblum, has seen a recent career renaissance, but found his feet in some horror classics. In "The Sentinel" (Michael Winner, 1977), he has a bit part as a photographer working with a young woman haunted by evil. He stars as conspiracy theorist homeopathic health nurse Jack Bellicec in "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (Philip Kaufman, 1978) opposite fellow scream king Donald Sutherland. In the cheeky horror comedy "Transylvania 6-5000" (Rudy De Luca, 1985), he stars as a reporter hunting for the real Frankenstein. "The Fly" (David Cronenberg, 1986) sees him starring opposite wife Geena Davis as an eccentric scientist who falls afoul of his own experiment. In "Mister Frost" (Philippe Setbon, 1990) he plays an imprisoned serial killer with supernatural abilities. He then stars as a man brought back from the dead with psychic visions in "Hideaway" (Brett Leonard, 1995). Wherever his career takes him in the future, he owes much of his cult status to his horror and sci fi roles.
