ROMERO RETURNS!!! A Kinder, Gentler Romero...

After eight years, Romero returns. This movie, was of course, NOT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING. Not from George...

However, I enjoyed the movie as it is a odd mix of Kafka's The Metamorphosis meets Joel Schumacher's Falling Down with Michael Douglas.

Poor, meek, downtrodden Henry Creedlow finally wakes up & realizes that human beings are treating him like crap. He has hallucinations during these bad times about doing the things, and bad things they are, to the whole, insensitive human race.

Henry is getting screwed by life & he ain't gonna take it anymore! He wife is screwing his megalomaniac & sexually charged boss, his best friend in the world is screwing Henry, GEEZ, does this guy get a break? Even the hired help is screwing poor Henry, strangers on the street are rude & the yippy pampered family poodle treats him with contempt!

Until...

Henry gets some HUGE cojones, with the aid of a white mask replacing his face. Thus, making him the ultimate in an anonymous killers.

Speaking of killers... There is an excellent soundtrack and appearance by The Misfits in an ultimate, hedonistic head banging, party scene.

This isn't REALLY a horror movie, per se. It is a quietly crafted and sophisticated revenge of the downtrodden picture that I really and truly enjoyed!

Happy Watching!
