The Crazies

3

Who are The Crazies? The redneck citizens of Cowpoke, USA, whose water supply is accidentally contaminated by a biological weapon, or the gas mask-wearing, boiler-suited soldiers sent in to contain the outbreak? Shot on the fly between the first two instalments of his seminal zombie trilogy, George A Romero's germ-warfare flick may have been slapped together on a shoestring budget but it's still a lean little thriller with plenty of Vietnam-era swipes at the stupidity of the military - not to mention a claret-spurting scene involving a little old lady and her knitting needles.
