‘Corman/Poe’ – New Book Features Interviews and Essays Exploring Roger Corman’s Edgar Allan Poe Films

The legendary Corman-Poe Cycle gets a comprehensive spotlight in the brand new book Corman/Poe: Interviews and Essays Exploring the Making of Roger Corman’s Edgar Allan Poe Films, 1960-1964, which is NOW AVAILABLE from Headpress Books.

Written by Chris Alexander with a foreword by Roger Corman, the book is illustrated with dozens of photographs and stills, many of which have never been published before.

Produced on modest budgets for American International Pictures, iconic independent film director Roger Corman’s adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe stories were popular in their time as escapist horror cinema. Most starred horror icon Vincent Price and were written (and “freely adapted”) by the likes of Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont and Robert Towne. Today the series is recognized as unique and sophisticated, one that delivers decadent Gothic chills while exploring ideas of faith, sexuality, psychology and the supernatural.

The Corman/Poe Cycle includes classic horror films such as The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, Premature Burial, Tales of Terror, The Haunted Palace, The Raven, Masque of the Red Death, and The Tomb of Ligeia.

You can grab your copy of Corman/Poe through Amazon today.
