George A. Romero has a huge following and is best known for his horror movies but that’s not all he’s ever tackled. Shout! Factory is releasing his biker jousting renaissance movie KNIGHTRIDERS today for the first time ever on Blu-ray and we wanted to share the news with you. 

The members of a traveling Renaissance Faire, who saddle up on motorcycles instead of horses, ride from town to town to stage medieval jousting tournaments with combatants in suits of armor and wielding lances, battle-axes, maces and broadswords. The spectacle of this violent pageant soon garners national attention, much to the dismay of the current king of this Camelot. A challenger to his throne arises as they try to maintain their fairytale existence in a world wrought with corruption.

Written and directed by George A. Romero (The Night Of The Living Dead series) and starring Romero regulars Ed Harris (Creepshow), Tom Savini (Dawn Of The Dead), John Amplas (Martin), Patricia Tallman (Monkey Shines) and Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead).

Special Features: This release includes a couple of great commentaries and I was really surprised that Ed Harris came back for this simply because he’s one of today’s biggest stars and taking the time to do an interview was really cool of him! You can tell when you watch these that they all have a lot of respect and love for Romero! The iconic director calls this movie his second favorite he’s ever done!
