casThis could be the last contest I do for CHUD, so why not go out with a bang? One lucky reader is going to win ALL 24 DVDs so far released in the Roger Corman Collection. One lucky reader is going to have the building blocks of a fantastic DVD collection of B-movies.

Roger Corman is, of course, one of the all time greats. Not only are the movies that he produced and directed ultra-low budget gems, his studio served as a training ground for great filmmakers like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola. Buena Vista has acquired the rights to all 400 of his films, and they’re putting them out on DVD. There are 24 so far, and they are:

Rock N Roll High School Special Edition
Big Bad Mama Special Edition
Death Race 2000 Special Edition
Beach Balls
Caged Hea
Big Doll House
Corporate Affairs
Loose Screws
Welcome To Planet Earth
Last Resort
School Spirit
A Girl 3 Guys And A Gun
Love Thy Neighbor
Love 101
Attack Of The 60 Foot Centerfol,
My Brother’s War
Fire On The Amazon
Jackson County Jail
Cheyenne Warrior
Brain Dead
I Never Promised You A Rose Garden

Holy crap! And one person will have these – all because it’s cheaper for me to send it in one package.

So what do you have to do to win these great DVDs? Simple. It’s “Ten Best” time (“Fifteen Best” here at CHUD), so why don’t you prove what a great and loyal reader you are by going through our archives for 2005 and picking our ten best pieces. Don’t just give me the links, tell me why. And make it a diverse list – include news items, reviews and interviews, as well as our regular columns.

And remember – tell me why. You’re not going to win this if you just give me ten article links or titles.

Be sure to include your name and your mailing address, please. If that info isn’t in your entry, you can’t win. You only get one entry, so make it count.

Send your entries to with CORMAN in the title.

Head here to check out the specifics on all these DVDs. Even if you don’t win, there’s no reason for you to not own some of these – they’re in stores now!
