It's a Mad World

By Dustin Rowles | Trailers | October 2, 2009 | Comments ()


The Crazies is a remake of a 1973 George Romero film about a virus that affects a small Pennsylvania town and basically turns them insane. It's not exactly a zombie movie -- but the rules are similar. The remake, though it comes from Breck Eisner -- whose one notable credit was 2005's terrible, Sahara, although he's also attached to 2012's Flash Gordon -- nevertheless looks like a pretty decent. It stars Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell.

Having never seen or even heard of the original movie (what kind of awful goddamn Romero fan have I become), I can't say whether the remake is a good idea or a bad one. But the evidence from this trailer suggests that, at least it's been done decently. I just wish that hadn't went back to the "Mad World" well once again.
