The idea of a revolution by kids in a summer camp had potential, but the Roger Corman production Summer Camp Nightmare doesn’t work in just about any angle you can think of. Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies Page.
The Nightcrawler star will play the nerdy, lovestruck florist Seymour in this summer’s three-performance concert revival of Little Shop Of Horrors, the musical adaption of the 1960 Roger Corman sorta-horror flick that put composer Alan Menken and the late lyricist Howard Ashman on the map.

For a while there, it seemed like maybe the Fantastic Four reboot was as imaginary as Stan Lee wished the Roger Corman version was. But here, at last, with barely more than six months left until its release, is our first teaser. Sorry...Show More Summary
The 1995 Roger Corman production Dillinger And Capone has a great premise: What if bank robber John Dillinger crossed paths with mob boss Al Capone? But as for the end results… well, it is a 1990s Roger Corman production after all, though somewhat better than most. Keith Bailey is the proprietor of The Unknown Movies […]
If there were such thing as the internet in the 80s, Roger Corman most likely would have made a movie that looks a lot like GIRLHOUSE, which combines an old school blood-and-tits sensibility with modern day technology. Think of it as SORORITY HOUSE MASSACRE with webcams. Show More Summary
Where would horror cinema be without gothic fiction? The careers of Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, James Whale, Roger Corman and many a German expressionist owe a great deal to the storied architecture that characterized the settings of 18th and 19th century literary classics. Show More Summary
Since Joe Dante is such an integral part of Trailers From Hell it only makes sense that they should honor his mentor (and horror legend in his own right) Roger Corman by covering several of his trailers. Joe Dante offers his insight on The Tomb of Ligeia while Sam Hamm (writer of Batman Returns) tackles Intruder. Finally, Corman himself […]
Don’t let Electric Boogaloo fool you: Roger Corman started it. Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus simply improved upon the cheapo tyrant formula that came to dominate drive-in style cinema in the 60s and 70s.

In 1994, king of the shlock moviemakers Roger Corman was hired to produce a Fantastic Four movie with almost no resources in order for the Neue Constantin film company just to keep the FFfilm rights.

Unlike many Hollywood executives, Hurd was in her element at Comic Con.
We needed a definitive Roger Corman biopic like yesterday, but if it's going to shape up this way, it will have been worth the wait. Years ago, around 2010, a project called THE MAN WITH THE KALEIDOSCOPE EYES was a hot property; JoeShow More Summary
We would be remiss if we didn't present this fintastic look at Conan O'Brien's cameo in Roger Corman's newest creature feature, "Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda." He presented it on his July 23rd show which also featured Corman as a guest. It's sexy, bloody, sporty and downright majestic. Show More Summary
