Who says nothing ever happens in Iowa? I mean, one day you’re at a baseball game watching the kids have fun then the next thing you know the town drunk shows up with a shotgun and you’re forced to bring him down. Lot’s of paperwork I’m sure but who has time for that when the rest of town begins to exhibit strange behavior and then finally everyone seems to snap and starts killing each other. Oh and on top of that you have the government trying to contain the outbreak and it’s a no witnesses kinda deal. Yep, Iowa has it all these days.
The Crazies is a remake of George A. Romero‘s film of the same name from 1973. It was directed by Breck Eisner and Mr. Romero himself was the executive producer. It stars Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell.
The Crazies takes places in the fictional town of Ogden Marsh, Iowa. Complete with a sign that says “Friendliest Place on Earth”. However, the town’s water supply becomes contaminated with a virus that changes people into blood-lusting murderers on a constant rampage.
