May the “King of Bs” rest in peace.

We have extremely sad news to pass along today as legendary director, Roger Corman has passed away at the age of 98.

“He was generous, open-hearted and kind to all those who knew him,” Corman’s daughter Catherine Corman said in a statement to the Associated Press. “When asked how he would like to be remembered, he said, ‘I was a filmmaker, just that.’”

Throughout his seven-decade career Corman directed over 70 films and was the producer of over 300. Some of his standouts include Little Shop of Horrors, It Conquered the World, A Bucket of Blood, House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Tales of Terror, The Raven, The Masque of the Red Death, Death Race 2000, and The Tomb of Ligeia.

Corman is known for helping to launch of the careers of future mega-stars Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson and Martin Scorsese.
