3.0 out of 5 stars Bruiser Review: By A MISFITS Fan, May 13, 2004
This review is from: Bruiser (DVD)
The Name George Romero Brings To Mind One Film....Night Of The Living Dead. Let Me Start Of By Saying If You Plan On Compareing This Film To NOTLD Then Your Not Likely Going To Injoy Bruiser, But In No Way Does That Make It A Bad Film. I Bought This Film After Reading The Liner Notes In The Misfits Album "Cuts From The Crypt" Which Contains 2 Of The 4 Misfits Songs Featured In This Film, Which I Will Get To Later. The Film In Short IS Not In My Opinion Horror. But Then Again It's Not Drama, Action, Suspense, SCI-FI, Or Any One Genre Of Film. The Story Is That Of Henry. A Young Bussiness Man Who Works For A Magazine Called Bruiser (Hence The Title). All His Life He Gets Steped On By The People He Trust And Loves Mos. His Wife, His Best Friend, And His Boss. But One Man Can Only Take So Much. One Day He Wakes Up To Discover His Face Has Turned Into A Living Mask. Thus His Revenge Begins. Some Sceans Seem To Linger On A Tad But Not Too Much (The Films Only 99 Minutes Long). Half Of The Film Is Much Of Henrys Stress Which Leads Up To Him Finnaly Standing Up For Him Self. The Second Half Is Pure Revenge. Liek I Said The Deaths Arent Grusome Or Bloody, But To An Extent Thats What Makes Them Seem Very Real. Although The Reason For Henrys Face Turning To A White Mask Is Never Explained It Does Add A Certin Mistique To The Film. And Seeing As His Mask Isn't Like The Run Of The Mill Horror Mask I Say It's A Good Thing. There Isn't Much Gore Here But The Feel You Get From The Film Seems Very Satisfing. One Of Those Things Were You Love The Killer And Hate The Victims. The Film Ends At A Bruiser Masquerde Party/Rave Were My Favorite Band Of All Time "The Misfits" Play For Any Other 'Fits" Fans Out There The 4 Songs Played Are "Decending Angel" And "Scream" From The Album "Famous Monsters" And "Fiend Without A Face" And "Bruiser" Which Were Written For This Film But Not Released On CD Till The Misfits Put Together "Cuts From The Crypt". The Film Has One Very Creative Death Sceen That In Volves A Laser Used In The Misfits Set Performence. All In All I Give This Film 3.5 Stars. It's Not Horror But It's Still A Very Interesting Film That Leaves A Few Unanswered Questions. Special Features Include Commentary, And The Music Video For "Scream". After Viewing This Film You Will Be Left With One Of 2 Thoughts. If Yur Open Minded - "That Was One Of The Most Unique Films In Years". If Your Close Minded - "That Was Crap I Dint See Any Guts!!". SO In Closeing I Say If You Want To See Something Different Or Collect Films By Romero Or Collect Films For Any Other reason Or Like Me Simply Want To See The Misfits Then Yes i Recomend This Film. If Your Looking For A Gore Fest Or A Film Like Night Of The Living Dead Then You Will Be SEVERLY Dissapointed. Fangs For Reading Guyz. Peace
