Motion Picture Purgatory: The Crazies

Considering the state of the world we live in, viral outbreak films are all the rage right now, and Breck Eisner’s redux of The Crazies fared well overall both with critics and at the box office. So now it’s Trembles’ turn to provide his take on the flick.

Imagine living in a small town where everything is safe and happy … until suddenly it isn’t. Imagine your friends and neighbors going quickly and horrifically insane. In a terrifying tale of the “American Dream” gone horribly wrong, four friends find themselves trapped in their hometown in The Crazies, a reinvention of the George Romero classic directed by Breck Eisner from a screenplay by Ray Wright (Pulse, Case 39) and Scott Kosar (The Amityville Horror, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre).

“Containment protocol initiated” (on jumping the shark)!

    Romero created the zombies we know and love today plus the Infected (aka Crazies). Should it have been named 28 Crazies Later?
