Welcome to Ogden Marsh, Iowa: the friendliest place on earth. A picture perfect town where your neighbours are your friends and your friends are your neighbours.... Until they want to kill you. 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 A. Romero horror classic. Sheriff David Dutten (Timothy Olyphant) and his pregnant wife Judy (Radha Mitchell), find themselves trapped in the once-idyllic town they can no longer recognise. On the run from infected neighbours, loved ones and friends, targeted by the ruthless military and terrified of getting sick, they are forced to band together with other survivors in a desperate struggle for survival.
Ok i'm eclectic with music and film i like most genres this film has it all conspiracy, loyalty, sharp shooting a little dry humour and lots of blood guts n gore, if you like the above then give it a whizz i'm sure you'll enjoy it................

It's not bad - just so predicable...
- The Crazies review by RP
Apparently this is a remake of the 1973 film of the same name and directed by George Romero, who gets credited as Executive Producer. It suffers from what might be called 'the remake syndrome': it's simply not original. Mystery affliction send locals into a murderous rage. Sounds familiar? Sounds like '28 Days Later'? Sounds similar to other zombie-type films? You're right – it does sound familiar and it is, although these aren't zombies. This time the affliction / infection comes from a biological weapon and there is a bungled military attempt to contain the outbreak. Only the two lead characters escape (of course), everyone else perishes (of course), and there is (of course) the inevitable hook at the end which leaves room for a sequel (of course). It's not a horror film, it's not a scary movie, it has few if any shocks or surprises and it's all very predicable. Of it's type it's not bad, just very average, and I've seen a lot worse – so I'll give it 3/5 stars.
