Actually looks like a good ‘un! Check out the Trailer for the upcoming CRAZIES remake below!
An official trailer for the upcoming February 26, 2010 release of THE CRAZIES remake has hit the web. Check it out below!
Here’s a synopsis if you haven’t seen the Romero original (in which case, do so immediately).
A husband and wife in a small Midwestern town find themselves battling for survival as their friends and family descend into madness in The Crazies. A mysterious toxin in the water supply turns everyone exposed to it into mindless killers and the authorities leave the uninfected to their certain doom in this terrifying reinvention of the George Romero horror classic. Directed by Breck Eisner (Sahara), The Crazies is written by Ray Wright (Pulse, Case 39) and Scott Kosar (The Amityville Horror, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). The American Dream goes horribly wrong when the residents of this picture-perfect town begin to succumb to an uncontrollable urge for violence and the horrific bloodshed escalates into anarchy. In an attempt to contain the epidemic, the military uses deadly force to close off access into or out of town, abandoning the few healthy citizens to the growing mayhem as depraved killers lurk in the shadows. Sheriff David Dutton (Timothy Olyphant); his pregnant wife, Judy (Radha Mitchell); Becca (Danielle Panabaker), an assistant at the medical center; and Russell (Joe Anderson), Dutton’s deputy and right-hand man, find themselves trapped in a once idyllic town they can no longer recognize. Unable to trust former neighbors and friends, deserted by the authorities and terrified of contracting the illness themselves, they are forced to band together in a nightmarish struggle for survival.

How could I have missed this? Check out the poster for the upcoming remake to THE CRAZIES:
I don’t really believe THE CRAZIES needs a remake necessarily, but the film DOES lend itself to that idea more than any other flick that’s been remade. Of course, saying that, this remake trend HAS TO FUCKING STOP! That is a pretty damn neat poster though. If it had the original font style from the original flick, I’d buy it and just pretend it was intended for the original. I wish it was Uncle George who was going behind the pen and the lens on this one. It’s probably going to blow.
Ok, so, this is my first ever video review, so be kind. I’m tired as hell and I’m not entirely iMovie literate, but I think I caught the basics. Just watched a VHS of THE CRAZIES, so here’s the review. Oh, that reminds me. The place where I get 5 old VHS horror flicks for $5 for 5 days, VSI, is shutting its doors. MOTHER…FUCK! So I’ll probably take a camera in there, get some vid, and sort of memorialize the closing of the last mom ‘n pop video store I know of around here. Goddamnit! On with the review!
