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.
Right up there amongst Romero's best work. --The Digital Fix
A compelling reworking of Arthurian mythology that neatly intersects with America's own myths of independence and the open West, delivering remarkable action scenes in the process. --AV Club
Ed Harris is Superb. --Digitally Obsessed
