Coming Attraction: The Crazies

Click here to watch the trailer for The Crazies

In The Crazies, a small town is plagued by murderous insanity due to a toxic chemical exposure. This premise has my inner teenage boy jumping for joy.

I’ve never seen the original 1973 George Romero version, but now I think I’ll rent it. I’ve enjoyed most of Romero’s other work, including Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead.

On the one hand, the trailer is pretty creepy and well-made. On the other hand, this is a horror remake, and almost all horror remakes are lame. Since I’m in a good mood, I’ll give The Crazies a 3 on the Potential Meter, but it should probably be more like a 2.5.
