Movie career[edit]

Her first film appearance was I Drink Your Blood in 1970.[1] She appeared in two key 1970s horror films, George A.

She has several films due for release in 2008-9: Splatter Disco, Psychosomatika, Beyond the Dunwich Horror, Basement Jack, and Schism, which she co-wrote and co-produced.[4] Lowry starred last in Dante Tomaselli's Torture Chamber.[5]

In 2010, Lowry made a cameo appearance in the remake of The Crazies as "Woman On Bike". She can be seen in the twenty-fourth minute of the film.[6] 2014 co-starred Debbie Rochon in the Old school horror film North Woods.[7]
