Directed by George Romero
Ordinary citizens turn into homicidal maniacs after a chemical weapon is released in George Romero's 1973 follow-up to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. After a mercifully brief foray into romantic comedy, Romero returned to the subject that made him famous - multiple maniacs attacking unsuspecting townspeople - and the government's misguided response to the chaos. Like Romero's living dead films, THE CRAZIES offers a commentary on the military turmoil of the '70s, environmental contamination and bio-warfare - making it sadly still relevant - and scary - today.

There are some ugly ass dudes in this movie. The plot was fantastic and I really enjoy G.A.R's style of just dropping you right into it. The acting was 1970 so i'm reviewing it as such. 4 Skulls for the Uni-brow.
Interesting! Liked it better than the remake.
Great, and very well directed
fantastic classic. Starts strong and keeps your interest the whole way through
Great fun! Watched many times!
