The Overlook Film Fest wrap-up

Just over a week ago, I received a late-evening email from one of my bosses at JoBlo/Arrow in the Head. In it, I was asked whether or not I’d like to fly to Oregon, where I’d be put up in the famous Timberline Lodge, better known as the hotel Stanley Kubrick used for the exterior shots in THE SHINING. There, I’d be put up as part of the brand-new Overlook Film...

Roger Corman plans Death Squad and the final Death Race

Clearly Roger Corman doesn't find being in his nineties to be any reason to slow down when it comes to making movies. Having racked up more than 400 producer credits over the last 63 years, the 91-year-old legend has several movies in the works and awaiting release, including the next installment in the PIRANHA franchise, PIRANHA JPN: TEETH OF THE PIRANHA.

Exclusive: Mick Garris on Post Mortem, Roger Corman & new anthology film!

I am a super fan of writer-director Mick Garris. The man started out making behind the scenes docs for the likes of such flicks as Joe Dante's THE HOWLING, John Carpenter's THE THING, and Richard Donner's THE GOONIES. From there, Garris became a screenwriter himself with such classics as CRITTERS 2, THE FLY II, and HOCUS POCUS . He also directed PSYCHO IV: THE...

Roger Corman gives Piranha JPN a title with more bite

For a couple months, we have been tracking the development of a new entry in the PIRANHA franchise that is being executive produced by Roger Corman and produced by PIRANHA rights holder Hisako Tsukuba (a.k.a. Chako van Leeuwen). A Japanese production, the new film was going by two different titles - PIRANHA JPN in Japan and SUMMER OF THE PIRANHA internationally. Well, we can...

Christopher Lloyd returns for Summer of Piranha!

Supposedly there will be a new PIRANHA design for SUMMER OF PIRANHA. It's said to be a mixture of piranha and tuna fish... Tuna, really? There is supposedly a joke being presented here in that Japanese people love themselves some tuna, so it's funny that the "tables would turn" as it were. I don't know about all of that, but I do know I am down with this...

Roger Corman looking to remake Stripped to Kill [Exclusive]

Back in the mid-1980s, actress Katt Shea (then known for low-budget schlock like BARBARIAN QUEEN and THE DEVASTATOR) was attempting to get a directing career off the ground and turned to a producer she, and so many other struggling actors in Hollywood, knew well: Roger Corman. Shea consistently pitched Corman ideas for movies, and he just as consistently turned them down - even as he...

Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 gets an official red band trailer!

Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 gets an NYCC exclusive poster

In 1975, Roger Corman produced DEATH RACE 2000, a film that became a grindhouse / drive-in classic. Thirty-three years later, Paul W.S. Anderson made a DEATH RACE remake . Now we have two separate DEATH RACE projects to look forward to - one is the third sequel to Anderson's film, while the other is a Corman-produced follow-up to the original movie. While I need to catch...
