We've got a treat for y'all today -- a chat with legendary filmmaker Roger Corman, the Pope of Pop Cinema!

In our interview, conducted by Aaron Sagers, Mr. Corman looks back on one of his most successful B movies: Death Race 2000 (1975), in which characters with names like Frankenstein (David Carradine) and Machine Gun Joe Viterbo (Sylvester Stallone) traverse a post-apocalyptic landscape in their tricked-out vehicles and run over pedestrians to gain points in a bizarre cross-country competition.

Find out what inspired Death Race 2000 and how Mr. Corman thinks it compares to George Miller's Mad Max in the video below. "Chrysler!"
