Fantastic Femmes--Jill Schoelen

One of the best (and cutest) of the teen scream queens of the early direct-to-video days (1985-95), appearing in films starring (or directed by) Wes Craven, Keanu Reeves, Robert Englund, and LOST's Terry O'Quinn!
Sadly, now retired from acting. Her last appearance was in 2004.
Trivia: Dated both Keanu Reeves and Brad Pitt after co-starring with them in films, and was engaged, briefly, to Brad Pitt!

Popcorn (Maggie)
Curse II: the Bite (Lisa Snipes)
