Many independent directors have come and gone throughout the years, but the one who’s stood out the most over the years is Roger Corman. The “King of B’s” filmmaker has made a flurry of independent sci-fi, action, horror and drama movies throughout the years that include “The Little Shop of Horrors,” “The Intruder,” “The Wild Angels,” “Tales of Terror” and produced many films like “Death Race 2000,” “The Big Doll House,” “Piranha” and “Boxcar Bertha,” just to name a few. He’s always worked outside of the more traditional Hollywood system and has made many films that are more akin to his own tastes, creating a legacy of wonderful, entertaining films that movie-goers of all generations love.

The director of more than fifty films and producer of over 300 more, prolific B-movie maven Roger Corman is profiled in this biographical documentary from filmmaker Alex Stapleton. From Little Shop of Horrors to Rock and Roll High School, the documentary explores the wide variety of films that encompass Corman’s prolific and enduring career.

Recently ShockYa was given the chance to speak not only to the beloved filmmaker but documentary director Alex Stapleton about the conception of “Corman’s World,” how to properly go ahead with an independent production and his own thoughts on the transition from 35mm film to digital. Check out the interview below and be sure to watch “Corman’s World” when it’s released in limited theaters this Friday, December 16th.
