In which a man! Gets! HUNTED!
Is a bloody mash-up between the Count and the Surgeon something we really want to see? Looks like we don’t have a choice.
Another day, another remake. But before you throw your computers across the room at the mere sight of the dreaded ‘R’ word, take heart – Breck Eisner’s The Crazies is actually a pretty good horror film, and a definite improvement on George A. Romero’s original.
A cosy Midwestern town where the smiles are shiny and the cakes are plentiful is the tranquil setting for a sudden bloodthirsty apocalypse in The Crazies. Executive produced by George A Romero, who redefined the horror genre with Night Of The Living Dead, Breck Eisner’s suspenseful yarn pays homage to the 1968 zombie classic with a big fat shout out to the dangers of experimental bio-weapons. Still, who needs subtelty when you’re being chased by a man with a chain-saw?
It’s always nice to stay ahead of the curve, if only so you can feel unneccessarily smug in front of friends and loved ones.
