Two horror tales based on short stories by Edgar Allan Poe directed by two famous horror directors, George A. Romero and Dario Argento. A greedy wife kills her husband, but not completely. A sleazy reporter adopts a strange black cat.
A medieval reenactment troupe find it increasingly difficult to keep their family-like group together, with pressure from local law enforcement, interest from entertainment agents and a growing sense of delusion from their leader.
The young executive of a publicity agency Henry Creedlow is a man that has repressed morbid thoughts and is walked over by most of his acquaintances: his wife is cheating on him with his boss and stealing his investments with help from his best friend; his housemaid is frequently stealing from his house and insulting him in Spanish; even his annoying poodle does not respect him. While in his daily morning routine listening to a talk show on the radio, he hears a man committing suicide live because he had been felt miserable and disrespected for a long time, and Henry feels impressed with the tragic story. The next morning, he wakes up to find his face covered by a white mask, changing his personality and letting him seek revenge against those who have humiliated him.Written by

According to George A. Romero and his wife Christine Forest on the DVD commentary on Dawn of the Dead (1978), the distributors of Bruiser (2000) sold it as a Romero horror film (example of that is the poster with the gashes on the white face). Both Romero and Forest felt that it wasn't just a horror film but more of a story of a man who is going through difficulties in his life. The fate of selling this movie as a horror film was this movie ended up going to video instead of theaters. See more »
The man had gone to market, to buy a diamond ring. The man who never noticed, that he was not a king. He choose the brightest sparkle, a diamond made of glass. The setting bright and gold, was crafted out of brass. The man spent all his money, the jeweler was a cheat. He told the man that royals, wore diamonds on their feet. The man went proudly walking, inside his shoe the ring. And no one ever told him, that he was not a king.

This movie isn't a scary horror film, but it's a classic. Faceless is one of the killers out for vengeance that has you rooting for him. The evil boss Milo (played by that guy who starred as Slippery Pete in the classic Senifeld episode) really needs to, though he has some funny lines. It really not very serious in some ways, and some stuff and hilarious. It's never really been billed that way, but that's what it is. This is the first Romero flick I've seen, and I thinkhe does very well. Can't wait to see his Dead series. As for this one, it's a fun horror classic. Go get it.
