    Even for a horror movie, The Crazies is a bore, and we're talking about the most boring genre this side of dysfunctional-family indie drama.

    Eisner has almost nothing on his mind, no political rumblings, nothing behind the urge to upgrade vintage trash.
  3. Has warmed-over chills and a muddled, zombie-like execution.

    Surprising solid. Definitely a few too many "convenient" moments, but that's common for horror films. Overall, I really liked this one. I definitely recommend it! Full Review »
