George A. Romero's Knightriders Officially Announced

Posted March 14, 2013 04:46 PM by Webmaster

Arrow VideoArrow Video has officially announced and detailed their upcoming Dual Format edition of George A. Romero's Knightriders (1981), starring Ed Harris, Gary Lahti, Tom Savini, and Patricia Tallman. The release will be available for purchase on April 22.

Made after the zombie classic Dawn of the Dead, George A. Romero's Knightriders 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.

Special Features:
  • High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations.
  • Uncompressed original Mono 2.0 PCM audio.
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.
  • Audio commentary with George Romero, Tom Savini, John Amplas and Christine Romero.
  • 'The Genesis of a Legend' Star Ed Harris remembers his first leading role.
  • 'A Date with Destiny' Co-star Tom Savini reflects on the film.
  • 'Medieval Maiden' Interview with actress Patricia Tallman.
  • Theatrical Trailer.
  • TV Spots.
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Nat Marsh.
  • Collector's booklet featuring brand new writing on the film by author and critic Brad Stevens, an archival interview with Romero, and a new interview with composer Donald Rubinstein, illustrated with original archive stills and posters.

This is such a great movie that stands out from Romero's films. I will definitely buy but don't forget that Cliff has said that he is working on an Scream/Shout bluray for sometime next year.

I hope those are not the actual screenshots( below the trailer). If they are, it looks like heavy DNR was used( faces appear waxy and not detailed).

Heavy use of DNR? Amazes me how many people know exactly how the original negatives have captured light on older films being released today. If you've not got the original negatives to compare it to (or alternative disc releases), and there aren't obvious electronic problems such as macro-blocking, etc, then don't moan.

Are you joking me???? INCREDIBLE NEWS! I love this flick. The more Romero and Savini, the better. I used to have it on laserdisc buy sold my collection and have been waiting patiently for it. I agree, not crazy about the cover art.

Paul, you are absolutely right. I should wait until the blu ray comes out before I properly judge it and to be fair, the colors and fleshtones do look great.
