BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE & GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON Now Streaming!

David Gregory‘s riveting documentary BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE & GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON is equal measures career biography and true crime story on the life and untimely demise of the notorious low budget exploitation filmmaker Al Adamson.

Gregory’s doco proved an audience favourite last year at FANGORIA x MONSTER FEST 2019 and we’re pleased to reveal if you have an Amazon Prime membership that you can now stream it for free via the Prime Video platform.

That said after you watch it, you’ll no doubt want to do a deep dive into Adamson’s filmography and thankfully Severin Films in the US are unleashing the ultimate boxset in April. Titled ‘AL ADAMSON: THE MASTERPIECE COLLECTION‘, the set includes thirty-one of Adamson’s films remastered across fourteen discs along with Gregory’s doco and a bounty of special feature content! Scroll down for a complete breakdown of this incredible must-own package!

Severin Films have kindly supplied two EXCLUSIVE scene clips from the documentary to view below!

Severin Films is proud to present the most comprehensive Blu-ray box set ever dedicated to the works of a single genre filmmaker with Al Adamson: The Masterpiece Collection, featuring 31 remastered Adamson films on 14 discs, plus trailers, audio commentaries, a 126-page book, the 2019 documentary feature BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE & GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON and more. Exhaustively compiled for the first time ever, Adamson’s ouvre spans a wild beyond belief world of bloody brains, vicious cowboys, naughty nurses, decrepit actors, sexy stewardesses, mad scientists, brutal bikers, Blaxploitation mayhem, kung fu killers and “scenes so SICK the Movies could never show them before!”

The life and career of B-movie maverick Adamson – known for such low budget classics as SATAN’S SADISTS, DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN and THE NAUGHTY STEWARDESSES (as well as his own grisly 1995 murder) – reveals perhaps the most bizarre career in Hollywood history.
