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.

Not bad. One of the few films where I like the remake a bit better.

DNF. Wasn't doing anything for me. I'm not sure how many movies before this dealt with the military's inability to deal with a quarantine crisis before this one. Only thing that kept this from being a 1 star review.

4 out 5. I could see this happening in the real world today, and thats made this film intense for me. Humanity going rampage between civilians, military, and the goverment trying to control/hide. Very scary aspect with martial law taking place, and removing everyones firearms to defend themselves. Great Romero film!
