Blood & Flesh: The Reel Life and Ghastly Death of Al Adamson 04/25/20
Exploitation films have their mavericks, their patron saints and their bad boys: this well-researched and lovingly assembled shock-bio introduces us to a particularly talented persistent filmmaker whose sexed-up horror & action grindhouse non-epics proved commercially viable even into the video age. Then comes the Ghastly Death part, a cruelly undeserved finish for a movie guy liked and admired by his collaborators. David Gregory’s docu tells the tale … all the way to the true-life grisly finale. Plus a second entire Al Adamson feature, The Female Bunch. On Blu-ray from Severin Films.
