DVD company Shout! Factory has been kicking a mucho amount of ass lately, and they're showing zero signs of slowing down. Their latest crowning jewel is without question their slate of upcoming DVD and Blu-ray releases of some true Roger Corman most beloved classics! For those not playing along ... Shout! Factory and New Horizons Picture Corporation have entered into an extensive multi-year alliance to release a vast library of classic and new films from legendary producer-director Roger Corman to the home entertainment marketplace.
Never mind all that ridiculous business about seeing who shits on the sidewalk! The original big daddy of them all, Death Race 2000, is getting set to hit DVD and Blu-ray in style; and we've got the lowdown on what to expect!
This past weekend saw the premiere of the Roger Corman-produced Dinoshark (review here) on Syfy. Today we get the trailer for another future Syfy flick pitting two previous Roger Corman reptilian behemoths in mortal combat. Feast your eyes upon the stupendous chomp-filled trailer for Jim Wynorski's Dinocroc vs. Supergator.

Since news broke that recent honorary Oscar winner Roger Corman and Syfy were teaming up to gift the world with a motion picture about a half-shark/half-octopus oceanic killing machine gone wild, Sharktopus-mania has engulfed the World Wide Web. Now comes news that a former Oscar nominee has signed on to star.
During the Oscars ten movies were nominated for best picture, and none of them strikes me as a motion picture that will stand the test of time and be remembered as anything truly great. Is it too late for a write-in vote to retroactively award this year's Best Picture Oscar to The Dark Knight or Gran Torino or even go all the way back and give either Jaws, Star Wars, or Raiders of the Lost Ark the high honor they richly deserved? Screw the Oscars, I say. Give me Dinoshark!
Want to know what the titular monster of Roger Corman's Dinoshark looks like? Want to know how and why a shark gets genetically crossed with an octopus in Corman's forthcoming Sharktopus? Don't deny it. You know you do. Just read on.
Just yesterday you heard the news that legendary b-movie maestro Roger Corman is going to produce Sharktopus. But before that shark/octopus hybrid comes into fruition, there's the matter of Dinoshark, the prehistoric monster shark flick he produced. A premiere date is finally set, and I am sure you will be shocked to know Syfy is where you can see it.
In a move that no doubt has our own Foywonder writhing with anticipation, word came down on Twitter (a strangely viable source of news) today letting fans know that Roger Corman's long rumored monster movie Sharktopus is that much closer to becoming a reality.
Sometimes a bun just needs a bit more time in the oven, ya know? Dread Central has learned today that Shout! Factory's upcoming (and we're sure to be stellar) DVD and Blu-ray release of the Roger Corman classic Piranha has been pushed back until August.
To say that we're Roger Corman fans around here at the Dread Central offices is a bit of an understatement. The man has done it all and brought us some of the most delightfully fun and ghoulish movies of our time. Now thanks to an exclusive deal with Shout! Factory, which we originally told you about here, there's all sorts of goodies on the way!
Shout! Factory continues to be the DVD company after the b-genre movie fans heart. As if a special edition DVD of Kingdom of the Spiders coming in January wasn't enough, Shout! now has a quartet of Roger Corman produced aquatic creature features and old school Gamera flicks in the pipeline. How's that for a reason to shout?
As Foy reported back in September, Roger Corman was selected to receive an Honorary Oscar by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Sadly, he won't be a big part of the Oscar telecast in March of 2010; instead, the awards ceremony was held this past Saturday at the Governor's Ball.
Episode 3 of the Roger Corman/Joe Dante/Corey Feldman collaboration known as Splatter is hitting Netflix -- appropriately enough -- today, Friday the 13th. Bring your hockey masks and a mop!
