FANTASIA TO PREMIERE NEW SEVERIN DOCUMENTARY BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE & GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON

(LOS ANGELES, CA) On July 16th, Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival will premiere Severin Films’ new documentary feature BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE AND GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON. Produced and directed by Severin co-founder David Gregory – and the follow-up to his award-winning LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY’S ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU – the documentary explores the strange life and gruesome demise of exploitation maverick Al Adamson, revealing perhaps the most bizarre career in Hollywood history. Told through over 40 first-person recollections from friends, family, colleagues and historians plus rare clips and archival interviews with Adamson himself, BLOOD & FLESH is a delightful, dirty and deadly saga of bikers, go-go dancers, aging Hollywood actors, porn stars, freak-out girls, Charles Manson, Colonel Sanders, alien conspiracies, bad contractors and “scenes so SICK the Movies could never show them before!” A screening of Adamson’s infamous 1971 opus DRACULA VS FRANKENSTEIN will follow the documentary premiere.

BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE & GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON screens on Tuesday, July 16th at 9:20PM at the J.A. de Sève Theatre. Director David Gregory will be in person for Q&A following the screening.
