THE CRAZIES is the best zombie film since 28 DAYS LATER


Let's get this out of the way: if you hate zombies, apocalypses, or horror, you will not enjoy The Crazies. This film does not redefine the plot structure of its genre. It's no Citizen Kane. We still have an infection of sorts, a hero trying to escape, a partner who is contaminated, a military intervention, shocking camera cuts, and lots of people walking alone in the dark. If these genre staples bother you, well, this ain't the movie for you. If you're up for a good time though, The Crazies is one of my favorite films of the year, so far.

"The Crazies" trailer goes live (Video)

Zombies are back, though I’m not sure they ever left. On the eve of Zombieland hitting theaters, a trailer for The Crazies has finally gone live. As I reported on Wednesday, the film is a remake of a 1973 George Romero film of the same name. The remake stars Timothy Olyphant and takes place in a small Iowa town where a toxin contaminates the water supply, turning everyone completely crazy. Here’s the trailer.

Kudos to whoever made this trailer for using the Donnie Darko theme “Mad World” (a Tears for Fears remake by Gary Jules). I can’t think of a more depressing song. Read the rest of my thoughts at Collider.
