If you have any interest in Al Adamson, the schlockteur savant behind Dracula vs. Frankenstein and many other exploitation classics, then you'll surely want to catch Blood & Flesh: The Reel Life & Ghastly Death of Al Adamson[. Chronicling Adamson's career with those that worked with and knew him well, the film is sympathetic with just the barest hint of fanboy-itis. Interspersed with royalty-free clips from his movie's trailers you get a real feel for Adamson's work, warts and all but, more importantly, you get a real feel for the man himself - warts and all.
Imminently watchable, there's a sadness that builds knowing that Al did not have a happy ending. Murdered by a contractor who attached himself to Adamson, and then buried under Al's beloved hot tub, what might have seemed a fitting end for a master of the cheesy macabre is instead overpowered by a sense of tragedy that far outweighs any hipster irony that might be lurking around the story edges. Recommended.
