Synopsis

Crab Monsters, Teenage Cavemen, and Candy Stripe Nurses is a revealing, outrageously rollicking, gorgeously designed book about the career and films of Roger Corman: one of the most prolific, successful, and influential independent producers, directors, and writers in the history of Hollywood, and self-proclaimed king of the "B" movie. As told by Corman himself and the famous figures who got their starts in show business with him, including Peter Bogdanovich, James Cameron, David Carradine, Francis Ford Coppola, Robert De Niro, Jonathan Demme, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Ron Howard, Jack Nicholson and Martin Scorsese, this comprehensive oral history takes readers behind the scenes of more than six decades of American film history, as now legendary directors and actors candidly unspool anecdotes as though reminiscing together at a Hollywood cocktail party--continually one upping each other and lovingly recalling the years before their big breaks.

Crab Monsters is supplemented with dozens of 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, Death Race 2000, Piranha, A Bucket of Blood, and more--that make the case for Corman as an artist like no other.
