A good remake and it's a little better then the original. It has that 2004 dawn of the dead look to it.

2.5/4 

David (Timothy Olyphant) and wife Judy (Radha Mitchell notice people acting bizarrely. The cinematography, effects and make-up looked authentic. Lacks better character development and an interesting clear plot. Lacks depth or even jaw dropping acting, but the cast delivers. One of the best lines: Judy Dutton - "It's gonna be all right, we're gonna be okay." A rare horror action flick that shows a bit of hope in the conclusion, The Crazies is worth the watch.

"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...
