Format: DVD
This George A Romero film from 1973 should have been a huge international hit. Unfortunately, it was released at a time when other horror films were more in the public eye (Exorcist, Texas Chainsaw Massacre)
That aside, The Crazies gives us a glimpse into the breakdown of society. After a chemical agent is mistakenly let loose on a small Pennsylvania city, the film shows us the effects through the eyes of three groups of people;
The Military
Scientists and
Normal citizens
Whilst the film is not itself terrifying, you will be disturbed at the fact that it could happen.
This DVD has been a long time coming, and with remastered picture and DTS sound, make it a very worthwhile purchase.

...until the remake is released when everyone and his dog will claim they've known about the original for years.

Ignoring that for the moment, The Crazies is an unpleasant, vicious horror from the 70s in which George Romero moves away from the zombies (although not too far) to create a story of Smalltown, USA turning insanely violent in the wake of a military accident. And the film is definitely unpleasant which is its greatest strength. I'm not talking gore, I'm talking a sense of violence, threat and events rapidly getting out of control which makes The Crazies a horror film in the truest sense of the word. I'm willing to bet the remake will be a glossy, exciting thriller but it won't be a horror film.

Doubtless some viewers will be put off by the low budget and occasional overacting in the original (nearly everyone shouts their dialogue) as well as the almost relentlessly grim tone, but that's their loss. The Crazies is an extremely effective shocker that does what a horror film should.

Horrifies.

the crazies is a far better film than the remake with an almost documentary feel to it that gives the impression that the events are unfolding.as the townsfolk go crazie the army are brought in to contain the situation as a nerve agent has got into the water supply and people start to do things they normaly wouldnt.as the army become more heavy handed the locals rebel in amongst all this 2 nam vets one with his pregnant girlfreind decide to get out as things spiral out of control.directed by george a romero of night of the living dead.picture not briliant and the acting is not good but this seems to add to the tone and feel worth a watch,with a downbeat ending stays with you.

By Misto on 24 April 2011
Format: DVD
In his films the director, George A Romero, presents the most starkly realistic visions of human beings dealing with catastrophic or bizarre situations. They are always interesting, sometimes very weird, and this time quite plausible and truly watchable. In this film he explores the human tragedy, in all its tense and crowded drama, of a small town afflicted by the outbreak of a man-made virus that makes people lose their minds completely.
The panic, stress and full horror of the human response is loyally enacted with Romero's uncensored natural realism that extends even to the life-like natural lighting, at first shoddy-looking but grippingly realistic. It may be difficult for those not accustomed to Romero's old realistic style to pay attention to the plot. Once one realizes that one is witnessing the tragedy as if one were a by-stander or news-channel viewer it is possible to appreciate the full impact of this dedicated attempt to reflect the true to life horror of a society dealing with catastrophe.
The film confronts us with the animal nature of human beings as they succumb to riotous panic, aggressive quarrelling and utter madness. Yet it does not entirely reject the idea of the noble spirit and gives focus to one man's endeavour to lead a small group of townsfolk outside the quarantine zone to safety. The masked soldiers are out to stop them and the situation becomes more tense as the characters themselves become increasingly tense as ever the threat and reality of a mind-destroying disease encrouches on their hopes and efforts. The scientist is on a mission to stop it while the military is on a mission to contain it but will anyone succeed when the tragedy is this life-like?

I seen this before the remake but its a rare case of remake being better.
This horror thriller is very good in places and makes you think how fragile life could be in this situation but this hasn't aged well and the acting has a lot to be desired and compared to other horror films of the 70's(The Exorcist,Texas Chainsaw,The Omen,Alien)this isn't great compared really.
The story is fairly simple - A virus is released in a small town that either causes death or makes people go insane,we see the story from the view of the people,scientists and military.
This is where the film goes wrong there is too much on the military and scientists and not enough on the townsfolk and thats why i prefer the remake as there was less chatter and more straight to the point with more action and more chills.
This film has its moments and can be truly disturbing but too much talking and wooden acting plus looks very dated makes it case of being a film thats just average.
I highly recommend the remake instead of this.
