David Cronenberg, George A. Romero, and the Twilight of the (North) American Horror Auteur
This chapter analyzes the careers of David Cronenberg and George A. Romero, charting the evolution of two notable horror film auteurs from their origins in what the rhetoric of crisis has construed for many as the golden days of 1970s neo-horror, all the way toward the present. It suggests that while Cronenberg’s movies have come to exhibit that staid minimalism expected from a “mature” director of international stature, Romero’s recent films feature a joyful yet dour return to the exuberance of his genre’s g(l)ory days.
