George A. Romero's return to the director's chair!

  • May 1, 2009

Bruiser was the long awaited return for horror film maker George A. Romero. While it was great to see old George back in action, the end results were a mix bag. A pseudo thriller about a brow beaten man who wakes up one day without a face! The guy uses this new (or lack of) identity to strike back at those who have wronged him in the past. As he plots his revenge, he finds a new love.  Will he let that stop him and who or what is Bruiser?

The movie wasn't bad (but it's neither a classic) like some people have stated. It was a chance for Romero to get back into action after many film projects have died on the vine in the past ten years. He made a watchable movie on a real tight budget. Let's hope he'll get the opportunity to make more films.  The Misfits also make an appearance in a club scene near the end of the film.  Romero returned the favor by directing a couple of their music videos.

What did you think of this review?

Yeah, its not exactly his best work but I thought it was a little better than you found it to be. It was certainly an intriguing premise. Its a shame that with all the garbage being produced that someone og Romero's stature has to go begging for funds.

I know, he said that he wants to keep on making films before he's too old".

Even though he's not all THAT old I've seen photos where he looks rather frail. I wonder about his health.
