ONCE UPON A TIME, CULT DIRECTOR AL ADAMSON’S MOVIES WERE DRIVE-IN GOLD – CHEAP ’N’ CHEESY FILMS THAT DELIVERED THE SCHLOCKY GOODS. BUT THEN, IN A GRIM TWIST OF FATE, HE WAS MURDERED. A NEW DOCUMENTARY SHEDS LIGHT ON THE FORGOTTEN FILMMAKER, HIS TRAGIC DEMISE, AND HIS ENDURING LEGACY


F R M 20


ROM THE LATE 1960S THROUGH TO THE ’70S, DIRECTOR AL ADAMSON BUILT A LENGTHY FILMOGRAPHY OF HORROR, BIKER, SOFTCORE, AND OTHER EXPLOITATION FLICKS – a resumé that seems even longer because many of them were reconfigured and/or reissued under different titles. With mon- ikers like Blood of Ghastly Horror, Satan’s Sadists and Dracula vs. Frankenstein, they were naturals for the drive-in circuit, and Adamson’s product never seemed to be out of circulation (see sidebar). Partnered with producer/distributor Samuel M. Sherman in Independent-International Pictures, Adamson made ’em fast and cheap, and what they lacked in polish they made up for in enthusiasm.
