Miller Drake was hired to take Sergio Martino's ISLAND OF THE FISHERMAN, cut it down and shoot new scenes with a new cast to give the film a bigger American draw. Of course, for it to appeal to more Americans they added a bunch of gore and the end result was the film SCREAMERS. Drake does a wonderful job here fully explaining what his job was, how he got it and everything that was expected of him. If you're a fan of Roger Corman then you know he was willing to do anything to make a profit. Sometimes he'd buy foreign movies and cut them down and other times he would buy them and add stuff to them. Drake is really entertaining here as he discusses the process of getting this movie up to par so that it could be released to drive-ins.
