Movie Review: 'The Crazies'

Rating: 3 1/2 stars

Recap: Remake of the 1973 George A. Romero virus thriller where, one by one, the good people of Ogden Marsh become murderous lunatics, owing to a nearby downed plane carrying germ-warfare viral nastiness leaking straight into the town's water supply.

Review: "One of the year's nicest bloody surprises." -- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune film critic
