Product Description

OF THE LIVING DEAD comes this chilling film about biological warfare. Made in the shadow of both Vietnam and Watergate, THE CRAZIES is a grim allegory about a government conspiracy against the public that ultimately results in genocide. The story is set in director George Romero's home state of Pennsylvania. In the film, a government plane carrying a dangerous virus crashes near the small town of Evans City. The virus finds its way into the town's drinking water, turning everyone who is exposed to it into a murderous lunatic. Firefighter David (Will McMillan) and his pregnant wife, Judy (Lane Carroll), remain unaffected but face great danger in trying to escape the town, which has been quarantined by the US army, whose members lurk around every corner, clad in gas masks and protective suits. The President is often depicted as a detached talking head, offering no hope to citizens trapped by the mistakes of his administration. Similar in tone and structure to his DEAD trilogy, Romero's film overcomes a visibly limited budget to create a colorful 1970s genre film that neatly captures the feeling of governmental distrust that was characteristic of the Vietnam era. With both a social message and plenty of splatter, THE CRAZIES is an underrated but appealing horror film.

Reading the one star reviews, it's obvious they're of the "CGI effects are awesome and realistic (yeah right! ha!), film grain is bad, not-like-anyone-I've-ever-met facial mugging is the only real acting, short attention span, give me hyper-editing, lack of substance" school of idiots. Anyway, this film is a well made Romero film. The acting is fine. The video quality on this blu-ray is very good as it displays the original film quality correctly. Amazon's official review actually got it right this time, so ditto to them.

As soon as I Could snag a copy of this BR i was all over it

George Romero's The Crazies is by far one of Romero's Most Under-Rated, Rarely Seen Film (Running neck and neck with Martin)

You might have seen the Homage to it known as Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later

Like all of Romero's Films it has such a Layered Social Commentary on Humanity, Government Cover-ups, and The Break down of Modern Life

With a Re-make being Released soon (Another George A. Romero Film being Re-Made Hollywood needs to Stop and come up with New Ideas, Stories, Ect. and Leave Classics ALONE!!!!)
The Original will be the Best way to Understand Romero's Vision
It has a Super Raw look and feel (Much like the Original TX Chainsaw Massacre)
With all the Craziness around the world Involving all types of Flu Strains, and Viruses right now in this day and age
Romero's premonition is Shocking to say the least

I Highly recommend this BR for All Horror Fans
Blue Underground does a FLAWLESS Job at HD Transfers
All the Extras from the SD DVD will be brought over with BR Exclusive extras
Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great Romero Classic. I might actually like the remake a little better, but I truly felt the message was clearer and more powerful in this original. I really love George Romero's work. A lot of films today owe him a huge nod. Love ya George! Please make a couple more films while you're still able to. I promise, no matter what they are, or what they are about, I will support you for life. I hope he does do at least one more zombie movie, or at the very least, an apocalyptic movie!
