It's fascinating in an overwrought kind of way, and even though it was not filmed in Pittsburgh, it's still filled with all of Romero's usual touches.
Never scary or suspenseful, and only succeeds at being sleazy and unpleasant. It's easy to see why this stinker never got a theatrical release.
Dark, ugly, violent, and bleak. Fun times for all!
Bruiser is clearly meant to operate as both a social satire and horror flick, but it's effective in neither realm.

Bruiser may be a lightweight in the Romero canon, but he's still able to deliver the goods.
Bruiser is very adept at getting its point across.
