Storyline

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. Abrams (Creator of TV show Lost ) and Art Speigelman ( Maus ) with his underground comix character ProJunior, and his DIY filmmaking magazine, Cinemagic. Mild-mannered and unassuming, Dohler started making wholesome sci-fi films in the Baltimore area in 1976, but recently began including nudity and gore in his movies to please distributors. At age 59 he's just finished his most gratuitous movie to date and it's selling well, yet Dohler feels "sick of the exploitative stuff" and is considering giving up the Blood, Boobs and Beast formula. However, Dohler's recent ... Written by John Paul Kinhart and Dana Jeri Maier

Love this documentary! Great insight into indie filmmaking and Don Dohler!
6 February 2017 | by alienlegendSee all my reviews

I've watched this countless times already. Big thanks to Troma for releasing it officially on YouTube for free. This is a wonderful documentary. I'll admit I didn't know Don Dohler before this but now I'll never forget him. I think he's a fantastic role model and champion of independent film. We only have so much time in this world so get out there and do what you love like Don did! Seeing J.J. talk about him was a real treat too. Don had no ego. You have to admire that and the way he obviously loved his fans. He had a dream and he made it come true no matter what. Here is a humble, down to earth guy everyone can look up to. This documentary does a good job editing everything together, showing clips from his films, and keeping it all interesting especially with the behind the scenes drama that is so common on every film set (indie or otherwise).
