Hot Girl of Horror #27: Marisa Tomei

She really hasn't done much horror at all, but she did have an uncredited role as a "Health Club Girl" in The Toxic Avenger, and she also starred in the Keanu-Reeves-slasher
The Watcher, which I kind of liked thanks in no small part to James Spader. I'm a little worried about rewatching that one though. It's crazy how many films she has been in (65 on IMDb) but yet only two horror movies and many might even try to say The Watcher is a "thriller" just like The Silence of the Lambs. I call bullshit. I always hated people labeling certain classier horror films "thrillers." If your movie has a cannibal eating people's faces or a serial killer preying on women, it's a horror film, and there's nothing wrong with that.

  2. I had no idea she was in The Toxic Avenger. She's a cutie. So did she really win the Oscar for My Cousin Vinny, or did Jack Palance stroke out while announcing the winner? Snopes.com says "No", but Oscar doesn't have much of a history of rewarding comedic performances - no matter how good.

    1. Good question! I have no idea. She is definitely a talented actress and extremely gorgeous too. It's a shame the Oscars tend to shun horror movies too unless they have that stupid "thriller" tag.
