Blood & Flesh: The Reel Life & Ghastly Death of Al Adamson

‘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 gruesome 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.
