The Roger Corman-produced version of The Fantastic Four, from 1994, is like an optical illusion. Every time I try to watch the thing, I get about five minutes in before my eyes and brain resolutely decide to look at anything else. The term “unwatchable” gets thrown around a fair bit, but Corman’s Fantastic Four is a great candidate to define the term.

With a wave of superhero movies in full swing, two studio-made Fantastic Four movies behind us and a new one slated to shoot in March, it is inevitable that people will go back to Corman’s movie. It was never officially released, but the enterprising viewer can easily find it online. Now there’s also a documentary, called Doomed! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s ‘The Fantastic Four’. A trailer has hit, and you can have a look below. Read More »

And the Oscar Goes to…Roger Corman!

Here’s a money-making idea if you’ve got an extra bit of time this weekend: print up a bunch of little gold stickers shaped like the Oscar statue, with text that reads: “From Academy Award Winning Filmmaker Roger Corman.” Then sell them to the distributors who are going to have to revamp the box art on literally hundreds of DVDs after the Academy bestows an honorary Oscar upon the prolific and influential producer.
