Saturday Scream Queen: Lisa Zane

Lisa Zane is a successful singer/song-writer who specializes in cabaret-style performances and who in 2006 was recognized by The Songwriter's Hall of Fame recognized as one of their new songwriters of the year. Zane, however, has also maintained a steady sideline in television and film acting, with numerous horror films to her credit.

Zane is probably best known to horror fans as the girl with a mysterious tie to Freddy Krueger in the closing chapter of the original "Nightmare on Elm Street" series, "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare" (1997). Among her other horror credits are "Terrified" and "Her Deadly Rival" (both from 1995), and the sci-fi chillers "The Age of Insects" (1990) and "Natural Selection" (1994)

If Zane's last name seems familiar, it's because she is the older sister of Billy Zane, who's appeared in close to 100 horror films, including five in various states of production.

  1. What a great coincidence - I spent Memorial Day weekend with friends and family working our way through Crazy Movie Weekend - Friday/Freddy: 30 Years of Dead Teens - and of course we got to see Ms. Zane in Freddy's Dead. She also played a psychotic nurse in The Nurse (I think) and she made a truly chilling crazy face in one scene I can still see in my mind - it still gives me chills. I like her a lot.
