Blood, Boobs and Beast tells the compelling story of Don Dohler, whose movies have been called everything from oddly brilliant to some of the worst films of all time. Despite his critics, Dohler has gotten all 9 of his sci-fi and horror films distributed internationally, as well as TV syndication for his first film, The Alien Factor . Dohler has also inspired artists and filmmakers such as Robert Crumb (Fritz the Cat), J.J.

I was very excited to see the documentary, having been a life-long fan of Don Dohler and his wonderfully entertaining low budget films. Blood Boobs and Beasts is a very well done film that captures the man and his films in a informing and entertaining way. I highly recommend this film for any fan of the low budget horror/sci-fi genres or any one else who just likes a good entertaining film.

Kudos to John Kinhart for putting this together, great to see a Harford County local do so well. I for one will be waiting for the DVD to come out so I can see it again.
