Abridged Book DescriptionEdit

Working in the world of exploitation films and B movies, with shoestring budgets and no studio expectations beyond profitability, Samuel Fuller ironically found a great deal more freedom to explore controversial ideas and new cinematic techniques than many of his higher-profile peers... Shock Corridor's camerawork, by Stanley Cortez, is every bit as nuts as the colorful cast of characters populating the asylum, lurching, looming, and leaping from black and white into color... Fuller doesn't always arrange the film like he knows exactly where it's going, and its inherent trashiness never belies its B-movie origins - but he does imbue Shock Corridor with a crazed energy more than befitting its striking name.
