"It's gonna be alright, we're gonna be ok."Typically modern horror movies follow the same format--some mysterious thing chases them around their small town. In The Crazies, that thing is a virus that attacks the inhabitants of a town small town in Iowa turning the usual cookie-cutter residents into crazy flesh-eating beings that try to annihilate the whole town. The only survivors? Conveniently, the sheriff and deputy team, the town doctor and her assistant. While most of the residents are said to be of danger and are detained and killed, these four defy the odds to try to save their own lives by the skin of their teeth. They don't have anyone to trust but themselves, and with the attack of the crazies; their trust is quickly fading and so is their hope. Mediocre acting and a tired plotline ruins what's left of the movie.
