trailer break: ‘The Crazies’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Fantastic: another remake of a 1970s horror movie. The 1973 original was by George Romero, so surely it’s still worth watching today. What’s the point of a remake?

How is this not like every other damn movie about infection we’ve ever seen? The ordinary folk getting sick. The military turned on a small all-American town. What’s new here? Is there anything at all?

I do like Tim Olyphant, though. I wish someone would give him better roles than he’s mostly gotten.

The Crazies opens in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. on February 26.
