Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins and Channing Tatum.   Age: 52 Born:...

"Boo!" Anyone can scare an unsuspecting person with a single word spoken loudly, but that's quite a bit different than creating a sustained, scary atmosphere in a feature-length motion picture that keeps viewers on edge for the entire running time. A good horror movie leaves a lasting impression; we might remember that Psycho made us scared of showers, or that Jaws made us think it wasn't safe to go in the water, or that A Nightmare on Elm Street made us afraid to go to...
