Knightriders (1981)

Monday 18th February 2013

George A. Romero's Knightriders, released on DVD and Blu-Ray by Arrow Films on 22nd April 2013, is both clearly the work of the same director and a marked change of tone. There's still plenty of action, but it takes the form of jousting by people wearing full medieval armour... while riding motorbikes.

Made after the zombie classic Dawn of the Dead, George A. Romero's Knightriders, released on DVD and Blu-Ray by Arrow Films on 22nd April 2013, is both clearly the work of the same director (there are lots of familiar faces from his other films) and a marked change of tone. There's still plenty of action, but it takes the form of jousting by people wearing full medieval armour... while riding motorbikes.

Ed Harris, soon to become a major star, is the leader of a troupe of travelling entertainers trying to live their lives according to the ideals of King Arthur - no easy feat in Reagan's America, where the outside world and its financial realities constantly encroach on their dreams.

With a memorably eccentric cast of characters (including make-up effects genius Tom Savini in a major role and a cameo from novelist Stephen King) and a complex, nuanced script, Knightriders is Romero's warmest and most personal film to date.
