The Roger Corman Collection (MGM R1) in September

MGM Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Roger Corman Collection on 18th September 2007 priced at $39.98 SRP. A filmmaker who is responsible for giving many of Hollywood’s top directors their first big break including Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, James Cameron, Peter Bogdanovich and Joe Dant; Corman’s prolific career of making low-budget, yet wildly entertaining exploitation films cemented his place in film history.

MGM celebrates his legendary career with this anthology collection featuring eight films on four discs. The box-set includes Peter Fonda and Bruce Dern in the motorcycle thriller The Wild Angels, the artsy horror story A Bucket of Blood, the apocalyptic Gas-s-s-s, the Edgar Allan Poe tale Premature Burial, the science-fiction classic X: The Man with X-Ray Eyes and the acid-fueled tale written by Jack Nicholson; The Trip. Additionally, the collection offers two Corman classics never before available on US DVD – Shelly Winters and Robert DeNiro in the psychological gangster film Bloody Mama and the grand prix action spectacular The Young Racers.

There are no announced extras.
