Genre: Action / Drama / Horror

Synopsis: Something mysterious in a small Iowa town is causing some of the locals to lose their minds and become homicidal.  The local sheriff and his deputy head up the quest for answers.

AltAss Rating (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


Delivers the framework nicely for this thrill ride.


For the most part not noticably bad, but there were a few extremely hokie moments.


Doesn't kill the picture by any means but it would have greatly enhanced the film greatly to get a lot more talent for the lead roles.


This is a remake of a 1973 movie of the same name but any movie that boldly calls the morality of the U.S. government and military into question is going against the grain.


Not a bad little flick.  It will make you jump a little and while the story is overtly dramatic the cause of the incidents in "The Crazies" are highly possible in reality.  Lets hope we don't deal with the problems in the same way if we are ever faced with them.
