BLOOD & FLESH : THE REEL LIFE AND GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON

(Documentary)


African Premiere


‘Horror Film Director Found Slain, Buried Under Floor’, screamed the August 1995 headline in The Los Angeles Times.

But the whole truth behind Al Adamson’s strange life and ghastly death reveals perhaps the most bizarre career in Hollywood history.


From his early years as the son of a silent screen cowboy, through the production of some 30 lurid low budget pictures including SATAN'S SADISTS, DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN and THE NAUGHTY STEWARDESSES, to his grisly demise, the Al Adamson story remains wild beyond belief. Told through over 40 first-person recollections from friends, family, colleagues and historians, plus rare clips and archival interviews with Adamson himself, BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE & GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON is the delightful, dirty and deadly documentary of bikers, go-go dancers, ageing Hollywood actors, porn stars, freak-out girls, Charles Manson, Colonel Sanders, alien conspiracies, bad contractors and “scenes so SICK the Movies could never show them before!”

Directed by David Gregory (who directed the documentary Lost Soul on SA born filmmaker Richard Stanley's Doctor Moreau experience)
