Poster for Corman-directed The Raven, 1963

This is a list of films directed or produced by Roger Corman.

This is a partial list. Corman is famously prolific, in his American International Pictures years and afterward. The IMDB credits Corman with 55 directed films and some 385 produced films from 1954 through 2008, many as un-credited producer or executive producer (consistent with his role as head of his own New World Pictures from 1970 through 1983). Corman also has significant credits as writer and actor.
