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.

Talk about a match made in heaven ... or possibly hell ... Roger Corman, Joe Dante, and Corey Feldman are teaming up for a little project called Splatter, which will be Netflix's first ever live streaming web series.
When I read the news the other day that Roger Corman was selected to receive an Honorary Oscar by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, I was kind of surprised. Not because I couldn't believe Roger Corman would be given an Honorary Academy Award but because I'd have sworn they'd already done so years ago. Apparently not. Talk about an honor long overdue.
Now that Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (review here) has become something of a minor web phenomenon, it should come as no surprise that more animalistic movie monsters are being booked to step into the cinematic squared circle and clash in a motion picture smackdown of b-movie proportions. Next up for a monstermania main event: Dinocroc vs. Supergator.
Talk about amazing timing. Just last night I watched the new Rifftrax DVD of Roger Corman's original Little Shop of Horrors (not a bad effort, but I couldn't help but think it's a little hard to do funny commentary for a film meant to be funny). Now today I read the film is being remade again, but this time as a straight-up serious horror flick. Seriously. I mean, seriously?
Who here remembers Roger Corman's classic X: The Man With the X-Ray Eyes? Anyone? If you do, you're either an uber-fan like me or well on your way to (or past) middle age. In any event the film is up next for the old remake treatment with a great name attached to direct.
You can always count on Roger Corman to bring his b-game to the creature feature genre. The filmmaking legend who has graced us in recent years with Dinocroc (review) and its unofficial sequel Supergator (review) is about to unleash a Dinoshark upon an unsuspecting public.
Not to worry, oh lovers of cheesy B-cinema everywhere, we wouldn’t let 2008 come to a close without adding some last-minute cheese garnish to the year. Not that this year hasn’t been rife with news on low budget cinema masterpieces waiting to happen, but not nearly enough of them have had to do with giant leeches!
Roger Corman's about to add a new monstrosity to his ever-growing menagerie of creature features: Cyclops. The Corman-produced sword & sandal, one-eyed monster romp - that claims to boast a $10-million budget - now has both a TV airdate and DVD release date.
