The Cinema of George A. Romero
Knight of the Living Dead 2nd
By (author) Tony Williams
Cinema of George A. Romero by Tony Williams
Book Description"The Cinema of George A. Romero: Knight of the Living Dead" is the first in-depth study in English of the career of this foremost auteur working at the margins of the Hollywood mainstream in the horror genre. In placing Romero's oeuvre in the context of literary naturalism, the book explores the relevance of the director's films within American cultural traditions and thus explains the potency of such work beyond 'splatter movie' models. The author explores the roots of naturalism in the work of Emile Zola and traces this through to the EC Comics of the 1950s and on to the work of Stephen King. In so doing, the book illuminates the importance of seminal Romero texts such as "Night of the Living Dead" (1968), "Creepshow" (1982), "Monkey Shines" (1988), "The Dark Half" (1992). This study also includes full coverage of Romero's latest feature, "Bruiser" (2000), as well as his screenplays and teleplays.
