Al Adamson

Al Adamson was a prolific director of B-grade horror films throughout the 1960s and 1970s.

After assisting his father, Victor, in making the 1963 movie Halfway to Hell, Adamson decided to work in the motion picture industry himself. Three years later, he and Sam Sherman founded Independent-International Pictures, which became the vehicle for the many movies he directed. Among them are Psycho-A-Go-Go (later worked into Blood of Ghastly Horror), Satan's Sadists and Dracula vs. Frankenstein.

Al Adamson was reported missing in 1995. Five weeks later, after law enforcement officials discovered his remains beneath the concrete and tile-covered floor in his newly remodeled bathroom, his live-in contractor Fred Fulford was apprehended at the Coral Reef hotel in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Fulford was charged with and convicted of murder, and sentenced to twenty-five-years-to-life in prison
