Horror veteran George A. Romero
is disappointed one his proudest efforts remains largely ignored. The Dawn Of The Dead
creator insists Bruiser
, a film he made in 1998 after several failed Hollywood deals, is one of his best works despite the fact hardly anyone has seen it.
He says, "Out of frustration I basically fled in 1998 and sat down and wrote a little film called Bruiser that no one has ever seen and people don't get. I love it and I'm very proud of it. Hopefully someday somebody will notice it and say, 'Hey, this ain't bad.'"
Bruiser sees cowardly businessman Henry Creedlow, played by Jason Flemyng
, wake up one day to find his face has been replaced by a featureless white mask. Liberated by his anonymity, he sets out on a bloody trail of revenge on every person who has ever wronged him.
