LEGENDARY ROGER CORMAN TO APPEAR AT THE H. P. LOVECRAFT FILM FESTIVAL IN PORTLAND, OR
We are over the moon-thrilled to announce that Roger Corman, cinematic luminary and all around movie making legend, will be a special guest at the 24th Annual H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival™ this October 4-6. He will be joining Guest of Honor Victoria Price on stage for a rare 35mm screening of The Haunted Palace, based on Lovecraft’s story “The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.”
Well known for his work with American International Pictures, and as the head of New Horizon Pictures, Corman has written, directed, and produced hundreds of films spanning 7 decades. In the 60s and 70s, he adapted eight Edgar Allan Poe stories to the screen, many of them starring Vincent Price. Corman made this adaptation of a Lovecraft story as a break from the Poe films, but AIP wasn’t taking any chances, gave the film a Poe title, and marketed it as one of the series.
