This month in Detroit history: Happy Birthday Roger Corman!

250px-detroitskylinethumbnail3

If you’re a movie fanatic like myself, then I don’t have to tell you why it’s kinda cool Roger Corman is a homeboy. Yeah, OK, maybe he’s not necessarily up there on the tip top shelf with the likes of Marty Scorcese or Coppola, but he has still cranked out some seriously classic and fun flicks such as “Masque of the Red Death” featuring the late, great horror-meister Vincent Price, and “Bucket of Blood”, which delivered on the chills in the old fashioned way. Slash and dice is easy, but scaring an audience with a clever, twisted story line is much more deserving of the label “horror” in my book.

Corman’s birthday was actually April 4, but Happy Birthday anyway, Mr. Corman. You got style, kidd.
