Blood & Flesh: The Reel Life & Ghastly Death of Al Adamson
Director: David Gregory Run Time: 100 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 2019 New York premiere with producers Heather Buckley and Mike Capone in attendance with cast member Sam Sherman Throughout the late 1960s and the entirety of the '70s, B-movie director Al Adamson earned infamy with his no-budget productions, tantalizing genre fans with titles like Satan's Sadists and Dracula vs Frankenstein and then treating them to earnestly made schlock. His hustle could make even Roger Corman blush. Unfortunately, Adamson's legacy became forever tainted by his shocking 1995 passing, the details of which are stranger than his cinematic exploits. Severin Films founder and director David Gregory's Blood & Flesh is an exhaustive and captivating analysis of Adamson's singular career and inexplicable end.
