17 December 2014 8:42 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Scream Factory has detailed their February 2015 release of The Phantom of the Opera, starring Robert Englund:

“Los Angeles, CA – Get ready, Freddy. Scream Factory is going to the opera! A Blu-ray release of The Phantom of the Opera, including several bonus features, has been announced for release on February 17, 2015.

Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Galaxy of Terror, Freddy vs. Jason) assumes the classic role of The Phantom in this shocking, nerve-jangling retelling of Gaston Leroux’s timeless tale of music, madness and murder.

An aspiring opera singer finds herself transported back to Victorian-era London – and into the arms of a reclusive, disfigured maestro determined to make her a star. The silver-throated Christine (Jill Schoelen, The Stepfather) enjoys success through the arrangements of her new lover (Englund)… until she realizes that he has been committing unspeakably grisly murders in her honor and won’t stop until he’s completed his masterpiece… »

Sneak Peek At Documentary On Roger Corman's Fantastic Four Film

18 August 2014 7:06 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Back before Hollywood studios like Warner Bros., Sony, Paramount, Universal and 20th Century Fox realized that you could actually make money off of adapting silly comic books into movies, there was a German producer by the name of Bernd Eichinger. He had the vision to see that comic books could become blockbusters and had his company purchase the film rights to the Fantastic Four from Stan Lee. One issue, his company didn't have the money to actually make a big-budget Hollywood film. So, in order to keep the film rights his company hired Roger Corman to produce it, as he was well known for making films on the cheap. The cast included: Alex Hyde-White as Reed Richards / Mr. Fantastic, Jay Underwood as Johnny Storm / Human Torch, Rebecca Staab as Sue Storm / Invisible Woman, Michael Bailey Smith as Ben Grimm, Carl Ciarfalio as the Thing and Joseph Culp as »

Trailer for documentary Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman's The Fantastic Four

14 January 2014 3:54 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This year, 20th Century Fox is set to begin production on The Fantastic Four, a reboot of the live-action movie series based around Marvel's First Family. However, before Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis donned the spandex for 2005's Fantastic Four and its 2007 sequel Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, B-movie legend Roger Corman assembled Alex Hyde-White, Rebecca Staab, Jay Underwood and Michael Bailey Smith for 1994's The Fantastic Four

Never heard of it? Well, that's not really a surprise. As it happens, the final film never made it to cinemas, nor indeed VHS or DVD. You see, the whole thing was designed to help producer Bernd Eichinger retain his option on the characters and shot on a $1 million shoestring budget in less than a month. In the build up to its release, Eichinger pulled the plug, sparking rumours (later supported up by Stan Lee) that »

Scroll down to see the new trailer for

Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s he Fantastic Four.

Here’s the official press release:

In 1994, Roger Corman was tapped to produce this Marvel superhero story on a very small film budget. The film was ultimately shelved prior to distribution, but a VHS copy was mysteriously leaked and the movie became a darling of film bootleggers and, more recently, web pirates. Rumors and speculation surrounding the production have become as much a part of the lore as the film itself.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Roger Corman’s edition of The Fantastic Four and finally, all of the secrets, stories and legal shenanigans that have kept this a ‘lost’ film will be revealed through in-depth, investigative interviews with the cast and crew.

The documentary is directed by east coast Film Studies professor and independent filmmaker, »
