All you zombie fans out there, you’re in luck! Well, sort of, directed by Breck Eisner and starring Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell this 2010 remake of the 1973 “The Crazies,” the new version will for sure satisfy most.
The movie will be taking place in a small Iowa town, and the plot will be loosely based on the original. In this version it all starts out as follows: A biological infection or toxin contaminates the water supply, as opposed to a biological weapon and the population of the whole town goes into zombie-like murderous frenzy.
David Dutton (Timothy Olyphant) the sheriff of Ogden Marsh, suddenly finds himself stranded with a few others in a town of murderous psychopaths...and does what he does best, killing things. The struggle is to escape town as things degenerate from blissful and quiet, to anarchy.
