You’ve got to love any showbiz forum that teases potential cult classics of the future like Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies and Attack of the 50 Ft. Cheerleader in 3-D.
Extending the B-movie legacy of insane posters and catchy titles, legendary showman Roger Corman and other independent producers unleash a fresh barrage of eye-popping genre hype this week at the American Film Market.
