The master of low-budget cinema, Roger Corman, is returning to the works of Poe, with new adaptations on the way...

A Bucket Of Blood or The Little Shop Of Horrors aside, our favourite Roger Corman movies are undoubtedly his extraordinary adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe. Beginning with House Of Usher in 1960, these movies often played fast-and loose with their source stories, and were often shot rapidly, but they also saw Corman at the height of his creative powers. Their saturated colours influenced horror for years afterwards, and usually featured some great, glowering performances from Vincent Price.

Although Corman has focused his energies on a rather different cycle of mutant monster pictures (Sharktopus, Piranhaconda and the like), The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that he's returning his attention back to the master of the macabre, with a new series of movies based on the works of Poe.
