DOWNLOAD MP3 (14 mins, 8 mb)

In a schlockmeister-meets-schlockmogul dream come true, yours truly talks shop with CineSchlocker royal Roger Corman (!!!) who recently signed an ever-so-shrewd deal with Mickey's Buena Vista Home Entertainment to distribute his historic catalog of more than 400 flicks. In this exclusive interview, discover why the move was key, get schooled by The King of Bs on the economics of successful sequels, ponder the rebirth of creature features and more! Listen using this handy player or download the complete schlockcast (14 mins, 8 mb).

First of the title tidal wave to hit shelves are truly special editions of Death Race 2000, Rock 'n' Roll High School and Big Bad Mama. Plus, proving how with-it Roger's Disney deal is -- just imagine eyeballing Death Race or Rock 'n' Roll High on your PSP!?! Oh, and let us not forget the digital debut of Roger's latest critter run amok -- DinoCroc -- who Corman winkingly wonders might be kin to Carnosaur.

Looks like Corman's repackaging the stuff he's already released on dvd. Where, oh where is the original "Not of this Earth". It's never been released on DVD. The PD companies haven't touched it. What's the legal status? Who owns the rights? It sure would be a nice extra feature on one of the remake dvds.

Repackaging, recycling, and regurgitating all can produce horrible products. In the hands of Roger Corman, they often produce pure genius, sometimes as art, sometimes as simple marketing brilliance.

Corman is a true American treasure.
