New In Books: The Cinema of George A. Romero: Knight of the Living Dead

New this week from Wallflower Press is The Cinema of George A. Romero: Knight of the Living Dead by Tony Williams.

"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."

The Cinema of George A. Romero: Knight of the Living Dead is available now in paperbackhardcover and Kindle editions.
