Great documentary. Saw several of those films back in the day at the drive-in theaters. We new they weren't great, but they were fun, but i do remember those movies looking better then than they do now in these clips. I still have all of my Famous Monsters of Filmland magazines. The drive-in days were a blast.
I love the background of a lot of exploitation films more than the a lot of the films themselves, so this was an absolute treat for me.
I'd never heard of Al Adamson until I watched this fab documentary, now I want to watch all of his movies. Nice work.
A wonderful look back at an era of movies that we horror and Sci-Fi Fans love. The interviews and stories from behind the scenes are engrossing, while the real horror at the conclusion looms large. A spectacular trip to a devastating conclusion. The films of Al Adamson will live on forever, as will the legacy of a most talented filmmaker.
