Roger Corman comes to the season finale of ‘The Last Drive-In’

Croman comes to the drive-in.

The finale episode of season three of the hit Shudder Original series The Last Drive-in with Joe Bob Briggs premieres on Friday, June 18 with special guest, independent film trailblazer, director, producer and actor Roger Corman (The Little Shop of Horrors, The Masque of the Red Death).

“Whenever anyone asks me anything about the origins of my interest in exploitation films, it all goes back to Roger Corman,” said Joe Bob Briggs. “Roger is the creator of the drive-in totals (although he doesn’t know it). Roger set the standard for low-budget independent filmmaking that defined genres and inspired first-time filmmakers over eight decades. To this day, no living person has a body of work as large and diverse as Roger’s at a level of quality that belies his obsession with low budgets. Whenever anyone asks me, “Is there anyone you’ve ever interviewed who intimidates you,” my answer is always “Roger Corman comes close.” I’ve interviewed him five or six times, talked to him informally many times, and he continues to amaze me with his intelligence and charm and deep appreciation of film. The only other person I’ve met who has his depth of film knowledge is Martin Scorsese, and Roger gave Martin Scorsese his first job.”
