Mr In that 14 years, Corman changed the course of cinema history

Koetting does a great job of taking us through the history of Roger Corman's almost unbelievable career as a director, producer, distributor and mentor. This is a must purchase for anyone who is a fan of film history and cult classics. In that 14 years, Corman changed the course of cinema history. New World was the early stomping grounds of many young filmmakers destined for powerful and influential careers. New World broke ground in exploitation filmmaking, introducing relevant social themes of the 1970s that still resonate today - feminism, racial equality and other social injustices.

Mr. Koetting does a great job of taking us through the history of Roger Corman's almost unbelievable career as a director, producer, distributor and mentor. This is a must purchase for anyone who is a fan of film history and cult classics. Mr. Corman is still making films today and Mr. Koetting clearly explains the reasons for his success. He also honestly discuss the few problems Mr. Corman had along the way, but as the great man says "None of my films ever lost money." You will marvel at the well known Hollywood stars and directors that cut their teeth under Mr. Corman. Anyone who doubts Mr. Corman's talent and influence, will be swayed by the work and Mr. Keating obviously loves the genre.

"Mind Warp! The Fantastic True Story of Roger Corman's New World Pictures" is the sort of book that fills in the gaps. The fabled studio was sold in 1984, only 14 years after Corman founded it. In that 14 years, Corman changed the course of cinema history. New World was the early stomping grounds of many young filmmakers destined for powerful and influential careers. New World broke ground in exploitation filmmaking, introducing relevant social themes of the 1970s that still resonate today - feminism, racial equality and other social injustices. New World, more than any other studio, distributed foreign films and changed the way we looked at them. Even when he re-edited other people's films, as he did with "Shogun Assassin", he gave them distribution they otherwise wouldn't have had. Roger Corman brought Australia's "Breaker Morant" to American screens. He distributed many interesting independent American films that otherwise might have languished and become forgotten.

Apart from being a valuable record of history, "Mind Warp!" is a thoroughly entertaining read that recognises the contradictory personality of Corman and how it is reflected in his New World operations. Highly recommended for all film buffs, not just Corman aficionados.

I have purchased more DVDs of New World movies since reading this book.

I'm a huge fan of Roger Corman's work (especially his New World era, which is the time frame this book covers) and this densely illustrative, well written and extremely informative book not only left me with dozens of stories that I had never read before about the exploits of this iconic filmmaker and his acolytes, but also a great overview of one of the most fascinating and crazy eras in cinema... a great edition to any library.
