Format: DVD
Directed by Breck Eisner and written by Scott Kosar & Ray Wright, The Crazies (2010) is a remake of the 1973 film directed by George A. Romero. It stars Timothy Olyphant, Rhada Mitchell and Joe Anderson. The plot sees a toxic spill into a small American town's water system turn some of the locals into marauding maniacs.

Eisner's movie is that rare old thing these days, that of the horror remake that greatly improves on the original. That might annoy some Romero purists, but the truth is is that his original film really isn't that great to begin with. Thus it's ripe for a remake, whilst acknowledging that a certain weariness creeps in to our thoughts at the seemingly never ending line of horror remakes churned out by a Hollywood running out of ideas. Hell I will even venture that we have seen all this before, nothing in this Crazies will have the horror faithful rushing out to tell their buddies about some overtly cranial splendour piece they have just watched. But this is a very effective horror piece, taut and tense at times, at others sick and splendidly disgusting. Eisner may not be a Craven, or for sure no Romero, but he executes the material with gusto and shows a knack for knowing how to make the material work.

The film is structured over three parts - - character formations in the little town of the delightfully small Americana sounding Ogden Marsh, which leads into the infected going doolally-the army attempting to get things under control-and then the fall out as our brave survivors, erm, try to survive and make sense of what is happening. Eisner and his writers even get away with not fleshing out the principal characters.

Positive.
A really chilling remake of a George Romero classic.
chilling & well directed by Brett Eisner.

Negative.
This needed just a extra sequence of terror around the middle section of this movie.

Review.
The Crazies is a remake of a 1973 George Romero horror film from the Seventies era.

The residents of a small town soon start acting strangely & soon start behaving like violent savages preying upon random people.

Sheriff David Dutton is soon investigating the mysterious goings on in the small town & makes a terrifying discovery involving a conspiracy that someone or some company has in fact affected the towns water supply that has turbed many resident's in homicidal maniacs.

Could this be the work of a Government conspiracy & if so why?, Sheriff Dutton races against time to protect his wife Judy & uncover this conspiracy but how can Sheriff Dutton solve this mystery when he doesn't know who's infected & who to trust.

Dutton leads a group of survivors in a fight for survival or risk becoming infected themselves.

This Remake is in fact a far better movie than the original, Superbly acted & well paced & directed by Brett Eisner.

This movie echoes the similar paranoia as the Thing with paranoid townsfolk wondering who's infected & who isn't really heightens the tension & threat level.

This is also a great conspiracy thriller as the events of this movie are caused not created by a airborne virus of infection, Somebody is actually responsible for this towns social savagery & murder.

The ending is great & unexpected that could set up the premise of a sequel which has yet to appear .

Format: DVD
As far as biological toxin disaster stories go Breck Eisner's
remake of George A. Romero's original is a highly entertaining
shocker. Mrs Wolf and I spent a tense hour and a half squirming
on the sofa this evening and still managed to devour a whole
watermelon shortly afterwards! (Having seen the contents of
more than one head spread across the inside of the TV screen
during the course of the film you may take this as evidence
of our robust woodland constitutions!)

The narrative is well paced. It becomes starkly apparent early on
that all is not well in the small town of Ogden Marsh, Iowa.
(It may be some time before I can look our next-door-neighbours
in the face again with my usual jolly air of fatuous affability!)
Something extremely nasty has got into the town's water supply and
folks are beginning to turn a bit green (and murderous) behind the gills
and the powers-that-be don't want anything (information or people)
getting out. The "evacuation" scenes are particularly well choreographed.

The malevolent atmosphere builds at a cracking pace and the old
"has he or she got IT?" cliche is given a credible new lease of life.

Sheriff David Dutten (played solidly by Timothy Olyphant) is one of
the good guys and makes it his mission to get his pregnant wife
Doctor Judy (a feisty performance from Radha Mitchell) to safety
(wherever that may now be!) at all costs.

The toxin takes its toll on the local community and it becomes harder
and harder to know who to trust or who might be lurking behind the
next burning truck intent on examining the contents of your chest cavity.
