George Romero's original was an entertaining piece of C-level crap. This is the sort of movie that should be getting the remake treatment -- take a potent idea (super-secret toxic chemicals are accidentally dumped into a small town's reservoir and the residents go, well, crazy), drop the original's silliness, don't spend too much money on it, get an indie-flavored cast, and try to scare the shit out of the audience. The director is Breck Eisner, he of Sahara. Make of that what you will. In any event, I'm normally not big on horror movies, but I love the idea of The Crazies, and I'm hoping it's a lot of nasty fun.
