This coming Monday (19th July) sees the highly anticipated UK release of the terrifying George Romero remake ‘The Crazies’ (2010) (read review here) which finally hits DVD and Blu-Ray here in the UK on July 19th, courtesy of Momentum. You can check out a batch of stills from the movie below. ‘The Crazies’, a remake based on George Romero’s 1973 original, stars Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell and Joe Anderson and is helmed by Breck Eisner.
“In a terrifying tale of the American Dream gone wrong, four friends find themselves trapped in their hometown. A reinvention of the George A. Romero classic, THE CRAZIES is directed by Breck Eisner (SAHARA) and is based on a screenplay by Ray Wright (PULSE, CASE 39) and Scott Kosar (THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE).
David Dutton (Timothy Olyphant) is sheriff in a picture-perfect American town with happy, law-abiding citizens. But one night, one of them comes to a school baseball game with a loaded shotgun, ready to kill. Another man burns down his house after locking his wife and young son in a closet inside. Something is infecting the citizens of Ogden Marsh…with insanity.”
