Poster for Martin

Psychological horror from iconic director George A. Romero follows a troubled young man who thinks he is a vampire, and behaves accordingly. More

Martin (John Amplas) is a disturbed, blood-drinking young man who believes himself to be a vampire, in a cynical, world-weary, late-1970s fashion. Moving to a small town to stay with his elderly granduncle, Martin veers between craving blood and craving sex, struggling for normalcy while combating an ever-growing thirst.

George A. Romero is still limited by apparently low budgets. But he has inserted some sepia-toned flashback scenes of Martin in Rumania that are extraordinarily evocative.

A shocking, thoughtful reworking of the vampire myth set in a dying American steel town.

Romero makes stunning use of his Pittsburgh locations to create a desolate suburban wasteland, and at its best it is rivetingly raw-edged.

Gory thriller that makes fun of the vampire myth before the hammer blow of a truly shocking climax.
