In a terrifying tale of the American Dream gone
wrong, four friends find themselves trapped in their hometown in The
Crazies, a reinvention of the George Romero classic.
David Dutton is sheriff of Ogden Marsh, a
picture-perfect American town with happy, law-abiding citizens. But one
night, one of them comes to a school baseball game with a loaded shotgun,
ready to kill. Another man burns down his house after locking his wife and
young son in a closet inside. Something is infecting the citizens of Ogden
Marsh . . . with insanity.
The few still sane find themselves trapped: Sheriff
Dutton; his pregnant wife, Judy; Becca, an assistant at the medical
center; and Russell, Dutton's deputy and right-hand man. Forced to band
together, an ordinary night becomes a struggle for survival as they try to
get out of town alive.
