Sheri Lyn Skurkis (born September 26, 1970) is an American actress and fashion designer. She legally changed her name to Sheri Moon and later Sheri Moon Zombie after she married her longtime boyfriend Rob Zombie. She has been described as a "scream queen"
Moon had aspirations to do cartoon voice overs, and even took classes, and briefly attended the Connecticut School of Broadcasting to become an MTV VJ But Moon found herself preoccupied going on tour with Zombie. When Zombie's band White Zombie disbanded, Zombie became a solo artist, taking Moon on as a dancer where she also choreographed routines and created costumes for the tour.
In 2003, Moon co-starred in her husband's first feature film, House of 1000 Corpses as Vera-Ellen "Baby" Firefly, but previous to that, she claims that she had never had aspirations of becoming an actress. As Moon explains her character in that film, "Baby is the angelic-looking bait to get the victims." Moon starred alongside genre actors Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and Karen Black. The film was not received well by many critics, including James Brundage of popular website Film critic who claimed that it was "too highbrow to be a good cheap horror movie, too lowbrow to be satire, and too boring to bear the value of the ticket." The film saw some expansion in later weeks and ultimately grossed $16.8 million worldwide, which was successful based on its $7 million production budget.
