The Crazies Review

Image for The Crazies

A biological weapon has been set loose in Pennsylvania. The insanity infection spreads the US military attempt to curb the destruction it causes.

★★★★

Essentially a dry-run for his masterpiece Dawn Of The Dead, George Romero's The Crazies shows the same horrified nihilism and superb filmmaking skills that he seemed to have to burn in the '70s.

Exceptional editing, sound design and creditable performances from mostly unknowns bolster this neglected classic tale of a town gone mad and quarantined by the US military.
