The Crazies Quick Review
Directed by Breck Eisner
The Crazies tells the story of the small town of Ogden Marsh, Iowa plagued by insanity and then death after a mysterious toxin contaminates their water supply.
Don’t drink the water or you might end up going insane, one by one members of the small town community fall victim to the toxin.
Another remake in the trend, The Crazies reinvents George A. Romero’s 1973 original film.
But the troubles in Ogden Marsh have only just begun, containment protocol brings the military to the small town.
Herding the townsfolk to separate the infected from the uninfected, the sheriff is separated from his pregnant wife.
The Crazies brought jump scares and tension, which kept me on the edge of my seat at key moments. The scene in the car wash was definitely a favorite of mine. Bringing gore, tension, and some black humor, The Crazies was a good time at the theater last night.
