Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman dubbed her “The Goddess of Independent Cinema.” In her twenty years in the business, Debbie Rochon has racked up appearances and starring roles in over a hundred movies. Her resume reads like Biblical lineage, with comedies, dramas, intense horror and science fiction. One of the most-sought (and arguably one of the most talented) actresses in the independent film world, she has projects in various states of production and release at all times. Over the next few months, she’ll be seen in Kevin J. Lindenmuth’s and Tim Ritter’s “Beyond the Lost World: The Alien Conspiracy,” Troma’s first children’s film “Doggie Tales,” as well as a more familiar Troma foray Tales From The Crapper. This summer, she’ll be filming a role in Amy Lynn Best’s follow up to her award-winning short film Were-Grrl, the slasher-comedy “Severe Injuries.” And if that weren’t enough, she’s also teaching an acting course in a Pittsburgh workshop run by veteran director and screenwriter John Russo. This isn’t even taking into consideration her appearances at conventions and film festivals, like the eagerly awaited Twisted Nightmare Weekend (run by fellow actress Robyn Griggs). And fans will be following her everywhere.

When Film Threat caught up with Debbie, she was anxious to talk about two very recent projects, the old-fashioned horror movie Bog Creatures, and the psychological drama Nowhere Man.
