Synopsis; The early death of director Michael Reeves at 25 from an accidental overdose robbed the cinema of a potential major talent. He only made three 1960s shockers – THE REVENGE OF THE BLOODBEAST, THE SORCERERS and the masterpiece WITCHFINDER GENERAL – each starring a horror icon, Barbara Steele, Boris Karloff and Vincent Price. But for many he was the genre’s shining light because he took fright out of studio confines and into stark reality. Reeves’ early life and movie times plus little known facts about his short but incandescent career are all covered in director Dima Ballin’s brilliant and exhaustively researched documentary.
