    I just received an email from Amazon which stated that the George Romero film Bruiser, is being released on dvd Oct. 9th. Has anyone even seen this film? If so, how is it? From what I've heard of it, Bruiser sounds interesting, but is it worth buying sight-unseen?

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    Since Amazon's specs for Bruiser are pretty much non-existant, I visited George Romero's official website to get the lowdown. The dvd will feature a commentary track with Romero and producer Peter Gruenwald. Could be a nice release. Still, how's the movie itself? Anyone?

    I remember the trailer as seeming to be a low budget horror movie type about a guy with a featureless face going over the edge. Seemed to be a unique look. Who knows, since the theatrical release was either extremely limited or nonexistent.
    Perhaps, if it's cheap enough, I might go in sight unseen.

    Well, I went ahead and pre-ordered Bruiser from Amazon. They had it for less than $20.00 so I figured what the heck? Anyway, I'd still like an opinion if anyone has seen this. How about you horror buffs out there? MaxY? Wes Ray? Anybody?
