  • Indicator Releasing Romero's Bruiser

    Coming to Blu-ray and UHD in July.

    Horror legend George A Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead) directs Jason Flemyng (Snatch, Pennyworth), Peter Stormare (Fargo), and Leslie Hope (24) in the devastating and deranged Bruiser.

    Unhappy with both his homelife and his career, Henry (Flemyng) is plagued by violent fantasies. When he wakes up to find his face replaced by a featureless mask, he sets about exacting violent punishment on those who have wronged him.

    Featuring music by celebrated composer Donald Rubinstein (Martin, Knightriders), and including an appearance by legendary punk band the Misfits, Bruiser was hailed by critics and fans alike as a triumphant return to independent filmmaking for Romero.

      Unfortunately, this movie just doesn't work. I've watched it numerous times just hoping I maybe missed something, but no. Peter Stormare's showboat performance really sinks it for me.
      Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

        I like this one. Not spectacular, but I always enjoy Flemyng.

          I agree, not a fan. I recall being psyched for this when it first got a DVD release years ago.

          Just out of curiosity, what would you all say is the final truly great Romero film? It seems to me like his work really declined in his later years.

              Land was good but, in all honesty, Day was the last great Romero film for me.

                I thought the plot point about the use of fireworks to distract the zombies while the living humans go about their business was brilliant. I read this as an allegory for the use of entertainment/sports/media to distract the average citizen while the people in power engineer our world.

                  I remember liking this when I first saw it years ago. It was something different for Romero, better than some of his later zombie movies.

                    I’d honestly call it his last good movie, and one of his most interesting concepts: What is a person capable of if they don’t have to look at themself in the mirror anymore?
