Review:

The definitive account of this horror movie master which combines a detailed examination of the director's production career and literary influences with fascinating observations on the wider cultural and social issues in Romero's work...Set to become a must read for critical reader and horror film fan alike--Xavier Mendik, University College Northampton

One can look to Tony Williams' indispensable book for an abundance of enlightening observations about this important American director.--Jim Hemphill "Film Quarterly "

This thorough, searching and always intelligent overview does full justice to Romero's 'Living Dead' trilogy and also at last rectifies the critical neglect of Romero's other work, fully establishing its complexity and cohesion.--Robin Wood

[A] fascinating book.--New York Times

Synopsis:

"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 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) and "The Dark Half" (1992). This study also includes full coverage of Romero's latest feature, "Bruiser" (2000), as well as his many screenplays and teleplays.
