Brilliant start,crappy ending

"Fuck you for what you did"

I still have the habit never to read a brief description of a film in advance, let alone I would watch the trailer. In most cases the most crucial things are being told or shown in such a way that most of the surprises are screwed up more or less. In case of a blockbuster it doesn't really matter in most cases, since the content is usually known. With movies like "The Crazies" you'll start with a complete ignorance and it can sometimes be a pleasant surprise. Based on the movie poster (which I find very intriguing though) and the genre, I was ready to be overwhelmed.

I must admit that the opening scene immediately gave me high hopes. Beautifully filmed and subtly supported by an appropriate soundtrack of Johnny Cash ("We'll Meet A...

"The Crazies" by Yojimbo

A small town finds itself under seige from the military when its water supply is contaminated by a biological weapon that turns its inhabitants into psychopathic killers. The Crazies is a remake of a (rather bad) George Romero film from the 1970s that had a promising concept but failed in its execution. This updated version follows the formula of other Romero remakes by upgrading the visuals and production value while at the same time gutting the story of any satirical or sociological aspects leaving a competent but rather generic horror film that barely explores its underlying concepts, instead relying on by the number horror film "scares" and gore. The characters are the usual B-movie stereotypes which don't offend in any way, but at the same time make little impact on the imagination a...

Crazy crazy people

When I saw the trailer, before it came out, it looked very interesting and like something somewhat different and somewhat familiar. As I watched, it slowly became something more familiar. It's like a zombie movie, but not a zombie movie. There isn't anything very 'supernatural' about it but more so a select group of people in power think they know better (when they actually don't) and things go wrong....very very wrong.

Don't get me wrong, just because the idea isn't that original, the story is still entertaining and I was paying attention the entire way. It was wonderfully cast with the likes of Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Joe Anderson and other support roles that delivered. It has it's eerie moments mixed with predictable ones.

Nothing about the movie seemed like too m...

Gone of the deep end in a interesting way.

Do you find life uninteresting ? Is it not disturbing ? Then come to Pierce County, Ogden Marsh, Iowa. Home to the wrecked aircraft carrying Bio-germ warfare, slated for eradication ,that didn't make it to its final destination. Now, time is running out on the inhabitants of this quaint little American town, if the virus doesn't get you, the Federal Government will ! The Feds well aware of the airplane accident, troops in the Military to control, let's face it, extinguish the residents and contain the situation.
Sheriff David Dutton(Timothy Olyphant) faces an increasingly unpleasant situation, the townspeople are suffering from some kind of disorder where they start committing senseless violent acts. As he tries to track down the cause, the US. Military is sent in to round-up the people...

The Crazies Review

The Crazies is way different then most people expect,, there not zombies there people that have went crazy and will not stop at nothing until you are dead. In ways this movie is a lot scarier than any Zombie film. Because these people are crazy not the undead they know what there doing but they don't care it's harder to kill them because of them being crazy, So them are some ways why it's scarier then a zombie movie. I love this movie because its different in it's own way you don't see films like these a lot. Remakes that actually succeed and don't fail. Timothy Olyphant pased in my book he should do more movies like these he's good in them. Some scenes in this movie will be memorable including a car wash scene which is very intense and gets captured very well. If your a fan of horror rem...
