Synopsis Horror master George Romero earns credit as executive producer for this remake of his own 1973 film. In THE CRAZIES, a small town is the setting for a virus infection that turns the inhabitants into corpses and the insane.4 stars out of 5 -- Eisner more than makes the grade with this exciting update...3 stars out of 5 -- A reimagining of George Romero's 1973 horror flick, THE CRAZIES brings in contemporary themes of paranoia and bio-terror and updates them for a new generation...THE CRAZIES is a perfectly competent genre film...As epidemic scenarios go, THE CRAZIES has solid underpinnings for going in any direction: social commentary or nasty good time.The film shocks and scares us, but it wisely avoids gruesome extremes. Eisner focuses instead on the evil that lurks within and nearby...Part zombie movie, part apocalyptic bioterror, part military conspiracy thriller, the refit hybrid doesn't stint on the visceral kicks demanded by contemporary audiences while remaining reasonably true to those Romero roots.Like all the best thrillers, THE CRAZIES abuts believability, with convincing performances by Timothy Olyphant as small-town Iowa sheriff David Dutton, Radha Mitchell as his wife, Judy, and Joe Anderson as Russell the deputy.[T]his retooled CRAZIES delivers the essential suspense goods with overall skill...
