The Crazies best reviews:
“I greatly prefer this cleverly sustained and efficiently relentless remake to the ’73 edition. It is lean and simple.”

“The big difference between Mr. Romero’s film and Mr. Eisner’s--which is so intelligent you fear the fanboys will scatter--is that Mr. Eisner never gives us the military’s point of view. All we know is what David and Judy and Russell know, which for a long time isn’t much. And The Crazies is all the scarier for it.”

The Crazies worst reviews:
“Eisner has almost nothing on his mind, no political rumblings, nothing behind the urge to upgrade vintage trash.”
