They Came From the Swamp: The Films of William Grefe (2016)

When it came to independent filmmaking in Florida, producer and director William Grefe made the swamps his own soggy back lot during the 1960’s and 70’s. He covered every topic that was in the news like bikers, drugs and drag racing with THE HOOKED GENERATION, THE CHECKERED FLAG, RACING FEVER, and WILD REBELS; helmed his fair share of horror films like STANLEY, STING OF DEATH, DEATH CURSE OF TARTU, and IMPULSE; and even managed to tackle gangsters with THE GODMOTHERS and deranged weed growing hillbillies in WHISKEY MOUNTAIN. He worked for Hollywood productions, crossed paths with anyone that ventured into Florida to make a movie, watched Fred Olen Ray grown into a one man filmmaking monster, and knew everyone who worked in the Florida film business. This is Bill Grefe’s story. And it’s a great ride. Featuring interviews with the people who worked with Grefe, as well as those that got to know him and/or learned a few tricks from him, you’ll never be bored with the two plus hour running time. Includes a featurette on Crown International Pictures, deleted scenes, a couple of short films, trailers, and the entire feature film of WHISKEY MOUNTAIN (1977) in widescreen. Whew!  DVD
