THE CRAZIES gets a poster
Here is the first poster for THE CRAZIES and it's a big shift from the campiness of the original 1973 poster. This movie is a remake of the George A. Romero film of the same title. In the original movie, a small town is accidentally infected by a new bio-weapon that either kills the victim or turns them into a homicidal maniac. The government comes in and must decide whether to contain the town or blow it up. Kinda like OUTBREAK meets THE HAPPENING.
From the looks of the poster, it appears like Hollywood is looking to make a much darker and creepier movie this time around, which is usually what happens to old horror remakes, for better or worse. THE CRAZIES is being directed by Breck Eisner, who is no stranger to remakes. His last feature film was the 2005 SAHARA remake, which was a bit of a financial failure.
