I had little interest in watching “The Crazies“. I figured it was just another “people stumble on some backwoods inbred cannibals” movie.
I was wrong. Now – this is no Academy Award winning flick – but it has a good story and good action. Tied to “survival”? Massive disease spreading across the countryside with roving psycho’s bent on killing you….sure, that fits.
Netflix Summary: When a plane crashes in a small town, a secret biological weapon is released.

Sheriff David Dutton (Timothy Olyphant) attempts to set things straight, but soon the military becomes involved in containing the killer virus. Breck Eisner directs this chilling remake of George A. Romero’s 1973 horror classic.
