    I was going to mark this down because I was bored of the long scenes of clueless military people talking.

    Then the last half an hour happened. Very exciting.

    The Crazies is a very interesting look at the nature of society at that time. I wish I could say things had changed a lot *sighs.*

    I saw this at a pre-release screening in a small theatre in NYC's Upper Westside, hosted by Romero. I had a good time.

    I really enjoyed this. Given the time and budget this was well done. Characters were likable and believable. Great pacing and dialogue. It's not going to win any awards but still s great solid movie.

    It never ceases to amaze me what Romero can accomplish with a limited budget and a heaping dose of paranoia. Though mostly people arguing, there were some truly messed-up scenes along with an ever-tightening sense of claustrophobia that kept me interested.

    Low-budget actioner about a chemical weapon that leeches into the water supply of a small Pennsylvania town, driving those exposed to it murderously insane. The military comes in to close off the town and find a cure, while various townspeople try and survive. More and more townspeople go insane, as the military lose control of the situation, hampered by their lack of technology and own bureaucracy. Directed by George Romero, this is one of his earlier post-”Night of the Living…

    Nem só de zumbis vive o grande mestre George A. Romero, que aqui nos traz uma obra cheia de críticas a sociedade no geral utilizando para isso um plot simples. E isso é o que torna esse filme muito bom! Um plot simples que é bem desenvolvido! Um clima de suspense com algumas sequências de ação. Não é o típico filme onde o terror tem uma causa sobrenatural. Aqui tudo é real, urbano, bem mais realista. O terror é, muitas…

    Has the nihilistic feel and intent without fully selling the content within. Still a solid blood and paranoia tale hot off the '60s slab.

    The metaphor still works, but it's missing something. Still, it's easily recommended to any fan of Romero.

    "You, what do you own the world?
    How do you own disorder, disorder,
    Now, somewhere between the sacred silence,
    Sacred silence and sleep,
    Somewhere, between the sacred silence and sleep,
    Disorder, disorder, disorder." (SYSTEM OF A DOWN, Toxicity)

    Why did that army man need that poor family's fishing poles?

    I think the remake was a whole lot better too.

    It's heavily flawed movie, and poorly edited, but it's actually a very ambitious and an intriguing plot. That doesn't mean it's good, but it's...interesting.

    The parallel story lines, wherein the heroes of each are essentially the villains for the other, is a really cool idea that unfortunately doesn't really go anywhere.

    I wish this had been a better movie altogether, which is why I'm actually now MORE disappointed with it's 2010 remake than I was previously. The remake is more…
