DVD Review: THE CRAZIES(2010)

2010’s update on the 1973 film by George Romero is a very good remake. The original film by Romero was actually a little bit unfulfilling, which is a surprise from this master zombie film maker. This superior version of the story needed to be made. The premise is great, where a military warfare toxin accidentally gets into the water supply turned normal folks in a small town into sadistic and violent killers. It’s somewhat of a variation on the zombie theme for sure.

If you’re looking for a top notch, wild and edgy Halloween film to enjoy, then this great remake is just your cup of tea. Well acted and devilishly good fun.
The Bottom Line: A surprisingly superior remake of the 1973 George Romero classic. +++(Three stars, or good. But this one for your well stocked horror film library).

    Hey Paul, Nice review. I think this movie was very under rated. If you like the “zombie genre” – which this movie sort of fits in- I think you would like this movie.

    Olyphant is on a roll right now making some good TV shows and movies. I even liked him as the Techie bad guy in the last Die Hard.
