More than 400 cult films included.

Buena Vista Home Entertainment has acquired video distribution rights to the Roger Corman library of films. The deal, which includes rights to more than 400 cult films, will cover distribution in the U.S. and Canadian distribution for select projects. Corman previously distributed the catalog himself through the Concorde-New Horizons label.

Corman, a producer, screenwriter and director, is known for projects such as the original "The Little Shop of Horrors" (1960), "Big Bad Mama," "The Intruder," "Death Race 2000," "Grand Theft Auto" and "Cry Baby Killer."

Buena Vista is expected to distribute the first Corman titles beginning this November.
