61cHls2S76L. SL160  The Crazies: Check Out The Original Version As Well As The New Hit!The remake of The Crazies is doing very well right now, with a great many positive reviews flying about online and in print. This is a cool thing to see, considering it’s a remake of a cult low-budget flick from way back in 1973, which was directed by none other than Night Of The Living Dead mastermind George A Romero. The political satire aspect may have been toned down a bit for the remake in favour of more insanity, but it’s still a powerful remake.

This original version is worth seeing for more than just curiosity though. It’s a brilliantly executed (and somewhat underrated) SF film with a horror edge that holds up well today even of the production values are less than impressive now.

If you like the new big-screen version of The Crazies, then the original movie is well worth checking out for comparison. Then, if you like that film, I’d suggest searching out a good copy of the Farenheit 451 movie too. Oh, and Soylent Greeen! Those three work well together in my head icon wink The Crazies: Check Out The Original Version As Well As The New Hit!
