    As a producer he helped launch the careers of such Hollywood legends as Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Jonathan Demme, as a director he has made some of the most original, unforgettable and highly influential cult movies in modern cinema. Incredibly prolific with an amazing output that rarely disappoints, Corman was an early exponent of what would become known as guerrilla filmmaking. Being one of the most uncompromising directors in Hollywood, Roger Corman never let the constraints of time and a low budget get in the way of his vision and as such the results were always a unique and visceral experience. This box-set includes such ground breaking classics as The Gunslinger (a highly charged feminist western with a brilliant opening action sequence), The Haunted Palace (a somewhat surreal horror story involving evil warlocks, disfigured villagers and an age old curse), Five Guns Go West (a violent, high octane western that pre-dates The Dirty Dozen with its story of death row prisoners with nothing to lose made to take on a secret suicide mission), The Premature Burial (a creepy atmospheric adaptation of an Edgar Allen Poe story), the cult classic The Wild Angels as well as The Masque of the Red Death, released by Optimum on DVD last year.
