The Crazies

In Theatre : Unknown
Director(s): George Romero

In director George Romero's THE CRAZIES, a government plane carrying a biological warfare virus crashes near the small Pennsylvania town of Evans City. The virus finds its way into the town’s drinking water, turning everyone who comes in contact with it into a murderous lunatic. Firefighter David (Will McMillan) and his pregnant wife, Judy (Lane Carroll), remain unaffected but face great danger in trying to escape the town, which has been quarantined by the U.S. army, who lurk around every corner, clad in gas masks and protective suits. Joining them in their attempt to escape are Clank, one of David’s fellow firemen, and Kathy and Artie, a father and daughter whose strange behavior indicates that they might have been exposed to the virus.

Similar in tone and structure to his DEAD trilogy, Romero's film overcomes a visibly limited budget to create a colorful 1970s genre film that neatly captures the feeling of governmental distrust that was characteristic of the Vietnam era. With both a social message and plenty of splatter, THE CRAZIES is an underrated horror film with appeal.

The Crazies Review by Bulin

George Romero's The Crazies was released 34 years ago. Other than the Zombie Tril…er I mean Quadrilogy, Crazies is probably one of George's better remembered films. I caught it again for the first time in years on AM...
