Review: The Crazies (2010)

August 6, 2010

The Crazies. Director: Breck Eisner. Starring: Tim Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Joe Anderson, Danielle Panabaker, Christie Lynn Smith. Written by: Scott Kosar, Ray Wright, George Romero

In an era of flu scares, this remake feels timely. It doesn’t seem entirely out of the realm of possibility that some virus could spread through a town and turn everyone batty. While the original played on people’s fear of the government, the remake of The Crazies wisely plays on people’s fear of widespread diseases and nasty viruses.

The residents of the small town of Ogden Marsh are being plagued by a virus that causes insanity. When the government swooped in to put the town on lockdown, Sheriff David Dutton (Tim Olyphant) and his wife (Radha Mitchell) try to escape along with two other uninfected friends. Mystery and horror ensue.
