After the experimental outings of There's Always Vanilla and Season of the Witch, Night of the Living Dead director George A. Romero returned to rather more distinct horror territory with his 1973 infection opus The Crazies. When a plane carrying a secret biological weapon crash-lands in the vicinity of a small, rural town, the area descends into chaos. Infected with a virus that sends them into a homicidal frenzy, the locals turn on each other in an orgy of bloody violence. As the army cordons off the town and government agents clash with scientists over the appropriate course of action, a small band of survivors attempt to make their way to safety. Starring cult icon Lynn Lowry (Shivers, I Drink Your Blood), the influence of Romero's The Crazies can be felt in everything from the director's own subsequent work - many commentators have noted the stylistic and thematic similarities to his zombie classic Dawn of the Dead - right up to Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later and beyond.

Romero excels in first action drama epic

Just purchased the three early Romero titles, and must say that Arrow's release is an excellent addition to any Romero addict's library. Crisp, clean picture, exceptional sound and terrific additional features make this disc a great source for hours of viewing pleasure. Watching CRAZIES again l was struck by what an amazing editor Romero had become by this point. Also two great interviews with the always enchanting Lynn Lowry makes this a worthy and enjoyable viewing experience.
