Remake of Romero’s cult classic retains the original idea of a small Iowa town (you know, the white picket fence, American values type) besieged by a rage virus after toxics get into the water stream.
It seems like zombie flicks are about as common as emo vampire stories these days, so it’s always refreshing when one of them can rise above the static. The Crazies ’10 manages to do that by being competently-directed, having decent scares and jolts of gore.
Olyphant and Mitchell treat the subject with respect and the production is a handsome one, even if it becomes very familiar after awhile.
