This 52-minute "documentary" is basically a sit down with pioneers Roger Corman and Charles Band. The two of them sit down together, get asked a few questions and tell some nice stories about their careers.
If you're a fan of either man then you'll at least be entertained by this interview where they tell some pretty good stories. Corman talks about what it was like working during the 1960s and then he tells a funny story about MGM and them refusing to pay out some money. Band talks about living in Italy and how he discovered so many American movies that were dubbed in Italian. He also talks about getting into the business and tells a nice story about the marketing of GHOULIES.
One of the funnest moments happens when Corman and Band ask each other questions. In all honesty, I wish the documentary had featured more of this as it's pretty interesting hearing Band being curious about the old-time days of independent filmmaking. The final portions has some fan questions being asked where we get some good stories about film's success that shocked the men as well as merchandise, their favorite films that they didn't make and who the greatest actor was that they worked with.
