Fantasia ’19 exclusive: Trailer for Severin’s Al Adamson documentary “BLOOD & FLESH”

Monday, July 15, 2019 | Uncategorized


The horrific films and horrible fate of a B-movie auteur are explored in depth by Severin Films’ BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE & GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON, premiering at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival tomorrow. We’ve got the exclusive first look at the trailer.

Directed by David Gregory (LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY’S “ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU”), BLOOD & FLESH spans the full life and career of Adamson, who helmed cult faves such as SATAN’S SADISTS, DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN, BLACK SAMURAI and NURSE SHERRI. He represented a brand of maverick filmmaker that doesn’t exist any more, and tragically lost his life at the hands of his live-in contractor in 1995 at age 66. Collaborators including producer Samuel M. Sherman, aficionados like Joe Bob Briggs and many others are interviewed in BLOOD & FLESH, which screens at Fantasia (with Gregory and producer Nicole Mikuzis in attendance) tomorrow, July 16 at 9:20 p.m.; for more info, click here.
