It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...

Still ahead of its time.

Romero's Martin is an amazing film, perhaps one of the greatest horror films ever made. It is unrivaled in vampire films, and perhaps only Romero's own Dawn of the Dead is better overall.

If the film were released today, I'm still not sure if it would find a wide audience. It may still be five years ahead of its time. Choosing to play the audience's sympathies like a violin, Romero alternates gut churning rape scenes and charming vignettes of social maladjustment. Truly a brilliant film.
