Ep 415: Debbie Rochon

The Movie Crypt

PUBLIC VERSION. Actress, icon, and legend of cult cinema Debbie Rochon (AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, TROMEO & JULIET, POULTRYGEIST, EXHUMED) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss her inspiring journey from a homeless teenager to one of the most beloved heroes of cinema with well over 260 film credits. From working as a featured extra in Lou Adler’s LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FABULOUS STAINS (1982) and finding her calling in front of the camera… to becoming one of the hardest working actors in cult cinema over the next 40+ years… to the on-set accident that mangled 4 of her fingers down to the bone… to writing for publications like FANGORIA, GORE ZONE, and SCARS… to co-hosting FANGORIA RADIO with Dee Snider from 2006 - 2010… to winning enough awards to be known as “The Meryl Streep of Horror”… to her triumphant recovery from a brain tumor… to directing her first feature film with 2016’s MODEL HUNGER… Debbie is a living example of never giving up, an eternal optimist, a survivor, and a hero to so many of us. Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a writer looking to break in and a patient having anxiety about returning to “normal” after the pandemic, Joe recalls how Debbie taught him what a consummate professional looks like on a set, and Adam gets no respect after crowning an actress with the title of “Scream Queen Winner."

By the early 1990s, Debbie was working with multiple theatre companies in NYC including The Tribeca Lab where she played multiple characters in Stephen DiLauro’s play The Secret Warhol Rituals. In 1993 Debbie began her career in radio co-producing and co-hosting Oblique Strategies on the terrestrial channel WBAI. 1994 was the beginning for Debbie to land lead roles in film. Abducted II: The Reunion would be the first and in 1995 she co-stared in her first Troma produced film Tromeo and Juliet co-directed by James Gunn and Lloyd Kaufman. This would also be the year Debbie would be given her first writing column which appeared in The Job Bob Report, published by Joe Bob Briggs. She would also pen for numerous genre publications including The Phantom of the Movies’ Videoscope magazine which she still writes for today. Of the multiple roles she would portray by decade’s end it would be Hellblock 13, co-staring Gunnar Hansen, that would begin the wheels turning for a new type of role she would soon be known for. During the 1996-1998-time frame Debbie would co-produce and co-host Illumination Gallery for the internet’s first on-line radio station Pseudo Radio.In 2000 director Jon Keeyes cast Debbie in the now cult classic American Nightmare which garnered much acclaim with legit reviewers and audiences alike. Her role as Jane Toppan would solidify her as a go-to actor for roles of the off-kilter and intense kind. By 2002 Debbie began working for Full Moon Entertainment, starring in four feature films with the company. She continued to write for genre publications and contributed chapters to horror themed books. In 2005 Debbie joined forces with what was then known as Scream TV.

In 2006 they launched Fangoria Radio for Sirius/XM where she co-produced and co-hosted the show with Twisted Sister front-man Dee Snider until 2010. The following year Debbie was granted her own column in the magazine called Diary of the Deb, the first column written by a woman for the publication, it was nominated for three Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards for best column, winning the esteemed statue in 2014. During this decade Debbie also gave critically acclaimed turns in works inspired by some of her favorite classical writers; The Tell Tale Heart (Edgar Allan Poe), Mark of the Beast (Rudyard Kipling) and Colour From the Dark (H.P. Lovecraft).Debbie appeared on the VH1 reality TV show Scream Queens as a guest judge in 2010. In 2012 she served, with Mira Sorvino, Gabrielle Miller, Tamar Simon-Hoffs and Lana Morgan, as part of the first all-female jury at the Oldenburg International Film Festival in Germany.
