IT CAME FROM CONNEMARA (2014) 58 MINS
In the mid 1990’s, Roger Corman, the legendary Hollywood B movie producer, opened a production studio in the west of Ireland. This is the man who launched the directorial careers of Coppola, Scorsese and Jonathan Demme, as well as introducing the world to Jack Nicholson, Dennis Hopper and Robert De Niro. Over 5 years Corman’s Irish company produced 20 feature films, with a largely Irish crew and a cast of Irish and Hollywood actors. Featuring extensive clips from those movies and exclusive interviews with Roger Corman, Don “The Dragon” Wilson, James Brolin and Corbin Bernsen, as well as members of the Irish cast and crew, this film captures the manic mayhem, controversy and behind the scenes shenanigans that came from Connemara during those five gloriously gruesome years.
