Despite being best known for entering the world of porn at age 16, Traci Lords' filmography includes several mainstream movies. Below is a list of some of her most famous Hollywood films.
"Not of This Earth"
Leading off the Traci Lords Filmography is "Not of This Earth," which was a 1988 science fiction movie directed by Jim Wynorsky. In the movie, Lords plays Nadine Story, a nurse who works at a hospital where aliens are trying to steal blood.
Though Traci Lords was displayed prominently on the video cover, she only had a ten minute part in the 1989 comedy about a sex drug that ended in a pizza sauce. Needless to say, this movie was not one of the most prominent in her filmography.
"Shock 'em Dead"
"Shock 'em Dead" is a 1991 horror movie that became the fourth mainstream movie to make its way into Traci Lord's filmography. Lords plays Lindsay Roberts, a manager of a rock band whose concerts have been paralleled with several brutal murders.
"Skinner" is a 1993 Independent horror film starring Traci Lords as Heidi, a prostitute who is addicted to drugs. In this Traci Lords film, Heidi seeks revenge on a serial killer who tried to kill her.
