The Crazies (2010) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Crazies is a real breath of fresh air… a horror remakes that doesn’t suck. Remaking Romero is a risky business. For ever Dawn Of The Dead there is a Night Of The living Dead 3D but here director Elsner delivers a confident, if sometimes repetitive horror that moves as a brisk pace until it’s neat ending. Original and groundbreaking? No. Enjoyable and blood soaked. Hell yeah.

Best Bit: 3… 2… 1… Boom!

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Buy

If You Liked this Try: Dawn Of The Dead (2004), The Crazies, Night Of The Living Dead (1990)
