Let me be honest with you folks, horror movies are a guilty pleasure. I LOVEEEE a good horror flick. But really, it’s the old school ones I love the most. George Ramero to be exact.
You may or may not have heard of his original movie, “The Crazies” set in a rural town where the townsfolk are going fucking nuts due to a accident with a government bio-weapon. And it’s up to the sheriff and his pregnant wife to escape the US troops sent to the town to kill everybody.
This remake takes everything great about that first movie… and makes it even better. Yes, that’s right, the remake is better then the original. It stars good ol‘ Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood, Justified) This dude seems to have a pattern…
It does everything a horror movie should do and does to right.
-Shit jumps out of the woods and goes “Boo”
-Awesome suspense and mystery.
-Hilariousness to break up those tense moments.
The ending is MUCH diffrent then the original… but I’m not gonna spoil that.
