Legendary horror actress and one of our personal favorites around here, Debbie Rochon, will be making an exciting leap to the other side of the camera when she makes her directorial debut with Model Hunger later this year.
Rochon’s incredible list of films, her tenure as a host of Fangoria Radio, multiple horror columns, and constant festival appearances have made her incredibly popular amongst hardcore horror fans. Now she’ll get a chance to show us what she’s learned in two decades of acting when she takes the helm of Model Hunger.
The film is due to shoot this summer. For now you can dig the official Model Hunger Facebook page or visit DebbieRochon.com. This is one project we’ll be keeping a sharp eye on. Knock ’em dead, D-Ro! Show them what you’ve got!
From the Press Release
There’s nothing more thrilling than power saws and vacuums plugging into the screen to suck, tuck, and dismember unsuspecting young women for your viewing pleasure. It’s equally intoxicating when the director herself has starred in these roles hundreds of times.
Fangoria Magazine’s June 2012 cover model and First Lady of Fear, veteran genre actress Debbie Rochon (Colour from the Dark, The Theater Bizarre), is crossing over the lens in her directorial debut with the self-aware horror film Model Hunger.
Written by executive producer James Morgart (Won Ton Baby!) and produced by Gregory Lamberson (Slime City and Slime City Massacre) and Shannon Lark (Ludlow), Model Hunger is a terrifying perspective of what can happen when the industry pushes one woman too far and the horrifying domino effect that hacks, grinds, and amputates the unlucky women crossing her path.
Model Hunger is slated for production this summer with a talented cast to bring the horror straight to your voyeuristic eyes. Model Hunger: We are just getting started.
