Action/Adventure, Drama, Horror

A town's poisoned water supply quickly turns it from a quaint little village in which the town sheriff (Timothy Olyphant) and his wife (Radha Mitchell) can raise their unborn child into a reprise of the community that suffered through the Night of the Living Dead. As the sheriff and his wife try to escape the infected—and the military team that is determined to quarantine them—they discover that the town "crazies" aren't exactly there because of a natural phenomenon. Director Breck Eisner (Sahara) follows horror conventions quite predictably, yet he cleverly manages to deliver shocks by adding a few ingenious cinematography twists. What's more, the film raises a few chuckles as it mocks its own genre. The Crazies is like a familiar carnival ride, but one that is far more enjoyable than most.
