From two-headed aliens to serial killers, East Tennessee talents have left spook prints in scary roles.
Available on DVD in time for Halloween:
'I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER' (1997)
Local connection: Muse Watson, a Roane County resident.
His role: Killer Ben Willis, who dressed as a fisherman.
Greatest hit: He traps Jennifer Love Hewitt inside a tanning bed to her fry. The cast also included Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr.
Other trivia: Watson was so scary he was brought back for the 1998 sequel "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer," which co-starred Sevierville native Matthew Settle ("Gossip Girl").
'JENNIFER'S BODY' (2009)
Local connection: Oak Ridge native Megan Fox.
Her role: Jennifer Check, a teenage succubus.
Greatest hit: Jennifer disemboweled her victims, but she couldn't stomach consuming a refrigerator's entire contents.
Other trivia: The film was a flop at the box office although it represented Fox's first try at headlining her own movie.
'SEE NO EVIL' (2006)
Local connection: Jefferson County resident Glenn Jacobs.
His role: Jacob Goodnight, the film's main serial killer.
Greatest hit: Dangling one victim tied to a bungee chord from a window and dropping her close enough to a pack of bloodthirsty dogs poised to attack her.
'MEN IN BLACK II' (2002)
Local connection: South Knoxville native Johnny Knoxville.
His role: Two-headed alien Scrad and Charlie.
Greatest hit: "Men II" is fairly tame on scares. Nothing horrifying, except our Hollywood namesake is dumber with two heads.
