Consensus: Tense, nicely shot, and uncommonly intelligent, The Crazies is a horror remake that, unusually, works.

Unlike Romero's film, what's missing is a trenchant sense of connection to our historical moment.

Mediocre acting and a tired plotline ruins what's left of the movie.

While it loses the charm of Romero's low-budget clunkiness, it is in all other regards superior.

It's kind of crazy, but it's also pretty smart. And if your nervous system can stand it, you should see it.

A well made horror remake thats tense and quite scary. In the style of horror classic such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre its scary without blood and gore.

I must admit the Movie "The Carriers" was alot better than this one. Well actually this one was a waste of time and 3.50 Francs.
