In this entry of Hidden Horror Gems, I take a look at George A. Romero’s criminally overlooked film, Bruiser.
“What do you get when you mix horror legend George A. Romero, a revenge fantasy, an existential study into the nature of identity, and an appearance by punk rockersThe Misfits? You get Bruiser, one of the later efforts in Romero’s decorated career and one of his least recognized films. Maybe it’s because it didn’t have zombies in it. Maybe it’s because it wasn’t a high profile collaboration with Stephen King. For whatever reason, I rarely hear this film mentioned when discussing Romero’s many accomplishments with other fans. And what shame!”
