The Colonel killed Tara Perry's career, she hasn't done jack since working with the world's most famous bigot. It's been all downhill since  :)

I think I'd watch Heaven's Gate just to see what the horse blowing up looks like

This is a pretty good list.  Michael Cimino should definitely be #1 with Heaven's Gate.  The movie was a four hour bore and resulted in the studio being sold!  I agree that Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest.  Has she done anything since that has not been a pay grab (best example: Supergirl)? 

How about Warren Beatty in Ishtar?  He even topped it years later with Town & Country and not worked since.  Yes he got an Oscar nomination in Bugsy and Dick Tracy was a hit but the damage was done.. 

My personal pick:  The entire cast of Nothing But Trouble.  Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Demi Moore, and John Candy were all in this mess.  Candy died three years later.  Chase, coming off Christmas Vacation, has had forgettable movies and a disasterous TV show.  Aykroyd's career has never recovered.  Demi Moore had a few hit movies in A Few Good Men and Indecent Proposal but also had Striptease and The Scarlet Letter

Autosleeper- I think Mcaulay Culkin's career ended once he started hanging out with Michael Jackson.... that sh*t must have really screwed him up and was never able to be himself again.......

 Open Range and Mr. Brooks were good, IMO.  I like Waterworld and watch it whenever it runs on TV.  The Postman was dreadful, especially as it was a pretty awesome book.

Whizkid1, while I am certainly not a Mariah Carey fan, her turn in Precious garnered great reviews.

I would love to see Nic Cage go the way of Elizabeth Berkley, yet he just gets to keep making awful movies.

Shelly Long in Troop Beverly Hills.

Harrison Ford... Indy 4. While he is him, and I didn't mind the movie, he admiteded it himself.

Showgirls should be renamed to Leave It To Berkley's Beaver.

metalpause - Shamalyan has been able to make his own movies how he wants since then, so you can't say anything has killed his career.  With the horrible reviews that The Last Airbender has been getting, they might be able to add his name to the next version of this list.

What if you made a really good movie but couldn't follow it up? I don't know about anyone else but I loved Napoleon Dynamite. I have the DVD and watch it again from time to time but I feel bad for Jon. Napoleon Dynamite casts a giant shadow over any of his subsequent roles and it seems he'll never rise above it.
