Unwanted Remake Case #23645: The Crazies

Personally, I need a remake of Romero’s THE CRAZIES like I need an intestinal parasite (and to be honest, I’d rather have the parasite–you can get rid of those), and this story from the Pittsburgh Horror Examiner gives me no confidence at all. More disconcerting than star Timothy Olyphant’s ignorance of the original is the fact that the director, Breck Eisner, appears to be a remake-happy hack cashing in on the “re-imagining” trend. Looks like it’s yet another case of classic ’70s horror bent over a barrel for the multiplex crowd.

Still, for a project more concerned with dollar signs, they’ve made a pretty cool poster.

I’ll probably stick with the original.
