Al Adamson

Film Director / Film Producer / Screenwriter | * 07/25/1929 († 65, 06/21/1995) | Hollywood, California (United States of America (USA))
Albert Victor Adamson Jr. (July 25, 1929 – June 21, 1995) was an American filmmaker and actor known as a prolific director of B-grade horror and exploitation films throughout the 1960s and 1970s. The son of silent film stars Denver Dixon and Dolores Booth, Adamson began his career in the film industry at a young age and began directing in the early 1960s, in total, helming 33 feature films. Many of his films, such as Psycho A-Go-Go, Blood of Ghastly Horror, and Dracula vs. Frankenstein, went on to gain cult status. After marrying his long-time star Regina Carrol, Adamson retired from filmmaking to pursue a career in real estate (Carrol died in 1992). In 1995, Adamson was murdered by a live-in contractor whom he had hired to work on his house, and he was subsequently buried beneath his floor. His death and the subsequent trial led to renewed publicity, and was the subject of several true crime television documentaries. ()
