Leave a comment
Debbie Rochon is one of the hardest working actresses in the movies.
While not as well known as Snookie, OctoMom or Honey Boo Boo,
Debbie is an actual actress and has earned the respect of the people she has worked with in the independent film community.
While best know as "B-Actress" and a "Troma Stock Player," Debbie has been involved in the industry since being a featured extra in "Ladie and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Strains" starring Diane Lane, circa 1982. She has been cast in approximatley 200 independent films and practically writes her own paycheck. With that kind of output, Debbie's movies are consistenly hit or miss.
Having starred in an Edgar Allen Poe anthology, Debbie has tackled Rudyard Kipling's rare horror short story, "Mark of the Beast." "Rudyard Kipling's Mark of the Beast" can not escape it's low budget presentation, stale acting and torture scenes that drag. In fact, the torture scenes need to be shorter and show less. However there are some creepy scenes that linger after viewing the 60 odd minute film.
The remote location, the repulsive leper monster and Debbie Rochon's narration raises "Rudyard Kipling's Mark of the Beast" about the usually B movie schlock of independent features.
