Will Tom Holland Ever Star In A Horror Movie?

Will Tom Holland Ever Star In A Horror Movie?

While Holland has yet to star in a true-to-form horror film, he’s performed in his fair share of intense cinematic environments. Obviously, being Thanos-snapped out of existence is pretty scary when you think about it, but Holland has been facing down terror from the very beginning. At only 14-years-old, his debut performance in “The Impossible” showed him facing down a tsunami, and thrown onto a harrowing quest to reunite his family while his mother is hospitalized with severe injuries. Much of Holland’s non-Spidey career centers on dramas and historical adventures, but many teeter on the realm of horror.

2016’s “Edge of Winter” tells the story of two siblings stranded at a winter cabin with their father who is slowly losing his grip on sanity. While classified more as a psychological thriller than anything, the film would make for a gripping double feature with the 2019 horror film “The Lodge.” The Netflix film “The Devil All The Time” starring Holland and “The Batman” himself, Robert Pattinson, may be categorized as a gothic crime-drama, but anyone with even an inkling of religious trauma will likely see the film as a sprawling descent into horror.

Ironically, despite appearing in horror-adjacent films, Holland admits he’s afraid of horror movies. “I’d like to do a horror film, but I’m so terrified of it,” he told Kaluuya. “‘Get Out’ is one of the only horror films I’ve ever really seen, and I love that film, but I can’t tell you how much sleep you stole from me.”
