Al Adamson was one of the last of the low-budget, low-minded exploitation directors, gifting a slathering public with such movies as Satan’s Sadists and Blazing Stewardesses. In March, Virginia filmmaker Chad Sisneros (above right) sat down with Adamson (left) to discuss his body of work, and the result is the short documentary Al Adamson: Drive-In Monster. Adding unexpected gravitas to the film is the fact that Adamson’s body was recently discovered buried under his hot tub. The murder remains unsolved, and the police are interested in viewing Sisneros’ work. Sisneros will discuss his film, which will be followed by Adamson’s best [sic] effort, Dracula vs. Frankenstein at 8 p.m. at the Grand Poobah, 2001 14th St. NW. $2. (202) 588-5709. (Dave Nuttycombe)
