Sheri Moon Zombie and her rocker/filmmaker husband Rob Zombie have collaborated on a handful of horror movies over the years, the first of which was 2003’s House of 1000 Corpses. This shameless throwback to the exploitation films of the 1970s was truly disturbing (once you’ve seen Office star Rainn Wilson as Fishboy, you can’t unsee it), but Sheri Moon stole the show as the crazed Baby Firefly.

She reprised the role in 2005’s The Devil’s Rejects. According to Wicked Horror, the sequel contains “some of the most disturbing sequences in modern horror” and Sheri Moon’s Baby is at the center of the carnage. In that one, the actress is essentially playing a psychotic, murderous version of herself, so there wasn’t much of a physical transformation needed, but that wasn’t the case when the married couple worked together on 2012’s The Lords of Salem.

Sheri Moon stars as a recovering drug addict who falls in league with the devil after becoming involved with a coven of witches. For the role, she agreed to have her hair in dreadlocks and sit through the application of several fake tattoos, not to mention that intricate face paint. “Some days it was two hours and some days it was three,” she told Media Mikes. “The tattoos would last for a couple of days … it definitely was a process!”
