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 armor... 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

Superb presentation of Romero's non-horror adventure. May not be the director's best realized work, but it was still a nice surprise. Package includes a well-written and informative booklet.
