Biography

She has portrayed reanimated corpses, seductive psychopaths and Michael Myers' mother, but Sheri Moon Zombie counts sleeping late and watching movies with her husband, musician and director Rob Zombie, as her idea of the perfect day. The California-born, Connecticut-raised actress, who legally changed her name after marrying the former White Zombie singer on October 31, 2002 (she swears it was not planned), initially dreamed of using her distinctly girlish voice to launch a career as a voice-over artist. But after a chance meeting with the dreadlocked singer before a show in New Haven, CT, Zombie decided to join them on tour and eventually starred in several music videos, starting with 1994's "Feed the Gods." After the band broke up in 1998, she joined Rob on his first solo tour and used her background in dance and design to choreograph routines and create costumes for his backup dancers. She portrayed a reanimated corpse in his "Cabinet of Dr. Caligari"- inspired music video for "Living Dead Girl" (1999), which marked the beginning of their creative relationship; since then, all of her performances, aside from a brief role in Tobe Hooper's "Toolbox Murders" (2004) and a guest spot on Showtime's sex-addict drama "Californication" (2007- ), have been directed by her husband. She appeared in numerous other videos before making the transition to film with 2003's "House of 1,000 Corpses." The brutal horror-exploitation film, in which she portrayed the beautiful but deadly Vera-Ellen "Baby" Firefly, became a cult success and she reprised her role in 2005's equally gruesome sequel "The Devil's Rejects." The next several years saw Zombie expand on her ghoul-next-door appeal: she launched her own clothing line, Total Skull, in 2006, and portrayed Michael Myers' mother in the successful 2007 remake of "Halloween" and its 2009 sequel. Since appearing on "Californication" the multi-talented Zombie has fulfilled her voice-over dreams by portraying a superhero's sidekick in "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto" (2009) and starred as a haunted radio DJ in "The Lords of Salem" (2012). She doesn't bite, but Sheri Moon Zombie has built her career on making you think she will.
