The Crazies

Sahara director Breck Eisner teams with screenwriters Ray Wright (Pulse) and Scott Kosar (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) to give George A. Romero's underrated 1973 shocker a shiny new makeover in this update starring Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell. Perform a Google search on "small-town America," and eventually you'll stumble across Ogden Marsh, a picturesque hamlet situated a safe distance from the nearest big city, and full of friendly faces. The citizens of Ogden Marsh are happy, albeit unremarkable people, but they're about to discover just how fragile their warm slice of the American dream really is. When a mysterious toxin transforms the locals into murderous maniacs, it's up to Sheriff David Dutton (Olyphant) to find out why a man who was once an upstanding citizen would attempt to massacre the local youth baseball team, and a caring father would burn his beloved family alive. Within hours the town has descended into total chaos, and the government has ordered it quarantined. Anyone who attempts to escape will be shot on sight, whether they're infected or not. Realizing that their only hope for survival is to fight through the madness that has consumed their once-quiet town, Sheriff Dutton, his pregnant wife, Judy (Mitchell), his deputy Russell (Joe Anderson), and frightened medical center assistant Becca (Danielle Panabaker) wage an epic struggle to discover the source of this malevolent scourge while fending off their infected friends and neighbors.

This movie was, well...pretty crazy. The acting was well done, and the concept behind it was pretty interesting. All I will say is that it really makes you start to wonder what actual nasty little secrets the government truly has. It scares me to think. I won't say anything more on that though. Find out for yourself what I mean. There was a couple of parts that really shocked the heck out of me too. For those out there who know about how traditional zombie films work, zombies are usually undead and want to feed on flesh and all that. Well, in this one, the "zombies" are actually alive, but something has happened to their brains that make them go, well...crazy. Their brains get inflamed or something and they start going bezerk and killing people. I don't want to go into too much depth on how this all comes about and everything, for those who haven't seen it. Just watch! It's worthwhile. People who get scared real easily or don't care for any gore might not be very privy to this movie, but if that doesn't bother you and you like horror/zombie films, definitely check this out. I hadn't realized until recently, too, that this is actually a remake of an older George A. Romero movie of the same title. Guess I'll have to give the old one a watch sometime and compare.

I found out from my dad that this was a remake of George A. Romero's The Crazies. Everyone I know who saw this movie liked it. It was definitely worth two hours of my time.
