Crab Monsters, Teenage Cavemen, and Candy Stripe Nurses

Roger Corman: King of the B Movie

By Chris Nashawaty

Introduction by John Landis

The first illustrated book on the life and career of Roger Corman, the world’s most successful independent director. 

Crab Monsters, Teenage Cavemen, and Candy Stripe Nurses is an outrageously rollicking account of the life and career of Roger Corman – one of the most prolific and successful independent producers, directors and writers of all time and self-proclaimed king of the B movie. (Corman was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Oscar at the 2009 Academy Awards.) As told by Corman himself and graduates of ‘The Corman Film School’, including Peter Bogdanovich, James Cameron, Francis Ford Coppola, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese, this comprehensive oral history takes readers behind the scenes of more than six decades of American cinema, as now legendary directors and actors candidly unspool recollections of working with Corman, continually one-upping one another with tales of the years before their big breaks.

Crab Monsters is supplemented with dozens of full colour reproductions of classic Corman movie posters; behind the scenes photographs and ephemera (many taken from Corman’s personal archive) and critical essays on Corman’s most daring films – including The Intruder, Little Shop of Horrors and The Big Doll House – that make the case for Corman as an artist like no other.

Chris Nashawaty is a senior writer at Entertainment Weekly. Nashawaty has also written for Esquire, Sports Illustrated and WIRED.
