IT’S ALL ABOUT AL…ADAMSON, IN NEW BOXSET FROM SEVERIN FILMS

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. Al Adamson worked best on the fringes of Hollywood, says Severin president/BLOOD & FLESH director David Gregory. When considering the golden age of drive-in and grindhouse films, he’s truly in a category all his own. It’s an unprecedented legacy that lends itself to what we believe to be the most absurdly compendious box set not only in genre history and – other than Criterion’s Ingmar Bergman Collection – quite possibly the annals of home video itself.

Al Adamson: The Masterpiece Collection is limited to only 2000 units. Exclusive Ghastly Bundles purchased from www.Severin-Films.com will include signed posters, CARNIVAL MAGIC t-shirts, reproduction DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN fangs, SATAN’S SADISTS patches, an authentic repressing of the 7-inch 45rpm single from the theatrical release of THE FEMALE BUNCH and more.
