The Crazies
Dir. Breck Eisner US/UAE 2010
This is a thrill-packed remake of a 1973 movie from horror-meister George A. Romero. As in the original, the government is the bad guys: the residents of a small town in Iowa are going beserk because a military plane that crashed nearby is releasing something really, really bad into the water supply. When it starts to turn the normally sedate townsfolk into rampaging killers, the local sheriff (Timothy Olyphant), his wife, who is the town’s doctor (Radha Mitchell), the deputy sheriff (Joe Anderson) and the doctor’s teenage assistant (Danielle Panabaker) must battle for their existence against their infected neighbors. But things really take a turn for the worse when the government launches its “containment protocol”. Director Eisner (if the name sounds familiar it is because he is the son of former Disney head Michael Eisner) not only gives us a terrifying doomsday action thriller but also provides a potent political parable for our times. (101m).
