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

From the 60s to the 80s, producer/director Al Adamson made cheap, crazy and effective exploitation films, like SATAN'S SADISTS and DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN for the drive-in market.

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

The new documentary BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE AND GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON, chronicles the movies, brushes with Charles Manson, bizarre UFO encounters, and an ill-fated business relationship that ends in horrific tragedy.

Join producer/director David Gregory (LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY'S ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU) and producer Heather Buckley (THE RANGER) as they discuss Adamson, the obsessive nature of horror fans, and the fascination of horror and fringe cinema.

I hope you enjoy the show!
