Eleniak returned to features after a six-year absence with the remake of "The Blob" (1988). She subsequently appeared in a PLAYBOY pictorial spread, a move that helped her prepare for "Under Siege" (1992), an action film starring Steven Segal with Eleniak playing a PLAYBOY bunny. Her first leading role was in the 1993 remake of that beloved 1960s TV series, "The Beverly Hillbillies," in which she played Ellie May Clampett. More leads followed with "Chasers" (1994), the well-received comedy "A Pyromaniac's Love Story," opposite William Baldwin, and "Girl in the Cadillac" (both 1995). She was featured in the comic horror film, "Tales from the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood" (1996).
