Before They Were Strs: Mariska Hargitay in “Ghoulies”

This is probably one of the more notable “Before They Were Stars” appearances in a horror flick as Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Mariska Hargitay made her screen debut with a supporting role in the infamous 1985 horror-comedy, Ghoulies. Ghoulies has to be one of the most inexplicably successful horror films ever as it’s nothing more than a pretty lousy Gremlins clone, but it somehow managed to gross $35 million at the box office and spawned three sequels. In this scene, Hartigay’s boyfriend is attacked by a demon and she displays acting chops which are truly befitting of a future Emmy and Golden Globe winner.
