George A. Romero's KNIGHTRIDERS (1981)


Halloween is just around the corner, and so, on today’s episode, host Tom Breen bis joined by horror-flick aficionado Joe Fay to talk about the movies, styles, and legacies of two seminal horror filmmakers who both died in 2017: George A. Romero and Tobe Hooper.

But instead of retreading the familiar territory of these two directors’ best known and most influential works, Romero’s 1968 Night of the Living Dead and Hooper’s 1974 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Joe and Tom focus on two slightly deeper cuts, Romero’s 1981 Arthurian biker drama Knightriders and Hooper’s 1985 alien vampire flick Lifeforce.
