New Book Crab Monsters, Teenage Cavemen, and Candy Stripe Nurses Explores the Artistry of Roger Corman
The name Roger Corman is synonymous with all things fun, scary, goofy, sleazy, and monstrous in film; and the new book Crab Monsters, Teenage Cavemen, and Candy Stripe Nurses shows off a different side of his treasures.
From the Press Release
Crab Monsters, Teenage Cavemen, and Candy Stripe Nurses (September 10th, 2013) by Chris Nashawaty is the definitive book about one of the most prolific and influential independent producers, directors, and writers in the history of Hollywood - the self-proclaimed King of the B-Movie, Roger Corman.
As told by Corman himself and the famous figures who got their starts in show business with him (including Peter Bogdanovich, James Cameron, Francis Ford Coppola, and Martin Scorsese, to name a few), this comprehensive oral history takes readers behind the scenes of more than six decades of American film history. Crab Monsters is supplemented with full-page, full-color reproductions of classic Corman movie posters; never-before-published, behind-the-scenes photographs and ephemera (many taken from Corman’s personal archive); and critical essays on Corman’s most daring and influential films—including Little Shop of Horrors, Piranha, and more.
Author Chris Nashawaty is a senior writer at Entertainment Weekly. During his seventeen years at the magazine, he has become one of America’s foremost movie writers. He has written for Esquire, Sports Illustrated, and Fortune and also reviews movies on NY1.
