The Movie Crypt

May 17, 2021


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."
