Debbie Rochon is a scream queen. She’s one of the best B-movie babes working in low-budget films today, right up there with Tiffany Shepis, Brinke Stevens, Linnea Quigley, and Michelle Bauer. She was born in Vancouver, BC, Canada, in 1968, and, is best known for her work with Troma Entertainment, appearing in films such as Tromeo & Juliet (1996), Terror Firmer (1999), and Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV (2000). But, since 1994, she has appeared in countless other wonderfully bad horror films, including Bikini Bloodbath (2006), Bikini Bloodbath Car Wash (2008), Bikini Bloodbath Christmas (2009), Slime City Massacre (2010), and so many more.
In Fangoria #329 [I’ve been a reader since the first issue!], Rochon, in her column (“Diary of the Deb“), talked about two upcoming revenge flicks she recently shot back-to-back: Serial Kaller (2014), directed by Dan Brownlie, and Axe to Grind (2014), directed by Matt Zettell. The latter film’s publicity still [above] caught my eye, and, so I checked out the trailer! Now, I’m excited for this movie. Here’s a synopsis:
Horror B-movie legend Debbie Wilkins (Rochon) has just been replaced in her lover’s bed by the newest young scream queen. Making matters worse, the same hottie has been cast in Debbie’s comeback role! Debbie doesn’t handle rejection well.
Since this is a revenge flick, Debbie handles her rejection with an axe. In Fangoria #329, Rochon said, in regards to this feature: “It was great fun for me, because I didn’t just get to kill everyone; I had fight scenes with most of them first.” I hope Rochon‘s life doesn’t imitate art!
Watch the trailer here:
Debbie Rochon looks great at 45 years old, right? I think so. However, in Fangoria #329, she said: “Last month, I turned 50.” But, IMDB shows that she was born in 1968, as does Wikipedia. Either way, Rochon is a very attractive middle-aged woman!
