22 Horror And Thriller Movies Starring Your Favorite Grey’s Anatomy Actors

In April I fell down the Grey’s Anatomy rabbit hole with the goal to watch all 14 seasons before season 15 premiered at the end of September. I met my goal, but after watching Grey’s Anatomy all day everyday watching it just once a week wasn’t enough, and I was going through withdrawal. I told myself that having no more Grey’s Anatomy to watch was a good thing so I could start catching up on my other shows and movies on my watch list, but I couldn’t help but want more Grey’s. In October, I got the idea to combine my love for Grey’s Anatomy with my love for horror, and see how many horror movies I could find that had Grey’s Anatomy stars in them. While I already knew about some of these, I was still surprised at how many I found. So, here’s 22 horror and thriller movies for Grey’s Anatomy lovers to watch and get their spook on!

About Morgan Jewel Sawan 84 Articles
Graduate from Oregon State University, with a Bachelor's of Science in Liberal Studies, a self made degree plan, that focused on media, writing, film, and women, gender and sexuality studies, aptly titled "Writing for and about film with a feminist perspective". I inherited my love of halloween and horror movies from my mom. My favorite horror movie is Scream, which is highly ironic considering I was deathly afraid of Ghostface, who I had very vivid nightmares about that I still remember perfectly, as a child. Some of my other favorites are Hereditary, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Beetlejuice, The Shining, The Conjuring, and much more! Even though I’ve pretty much been a life long fan of horror I still have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to the classics, ergo my Millennial Morgan Plays Catch Up reviews, which I plan to bring back soon. My passion project for the site is our digital zine, called Fright Like A Girl that's all about women in horror, made by women who love horror! In my free time, besides writing for the site, and working on my dream of becoming an actress and film maker, I enjoy making youtube videos (MJ Sawan on youtube), playing video games, going to conventions like Texas Frightmare, and Horror Hound, and cosplaying! I've cosplayed as Nancy Thompson from A Nightmare On Elm Street, Ripley from Aliens, and more. You can follow me on twitter, @frightlikeagirl, where I tweet A LOT about movies of all types, and the people in them.
