The Crazies

The Crazies

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.

Ordinary citizens turn into homicidal maniacs after a chemical weapon is released.

Cast: Lane Carroll, Will MacMillan, Harold Wayne Jones, Lynn Lowry

Has the unmistakable Romero vibe, hampered by some very hammy acting and loses its way a bit in the final third. Well worth at least one watch though.

A classic of course but just not one of Romero's best. The remake had much better brutality.
