Third Trailer for The Crazies

by Dan Koelsch

Overture Films has released a new trailer for their upcoming film The Crazies via theirYouTube channel, and while it may not be as effective as previous trailers, I like what they were trying to do with the shorter time. Take a look:





Although I’m still excited for the film, watching this trailer put a bit of doubt in my head and made me reassess the film’s potential. As you may know, The Crazies is based off the 1973 George A. Romero movie of the same title. While the new film may not have any big name actors (or studios for that matter), I think leads Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell are quality actors. Director Breck Eisner (son of Michael Eisner) is definitely a wild card, since his filmography is limited, and his only feature film is the lackluster Sahara. Writers Scott Kosar (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror) and Ray Wright (Pulse) have experience with the genre and horror remakes, but their films aren’t exactly great resume material.


So, what do you think? Am I crazy to think The Crazies will be good when it opens on February 26th? Check out our Crazies viral page for more information on the film and its viral campaign.
