Grab the shotguns and sharpen the pitchforks! The Crazies is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on June 29th from Anchor Bay Entertainment and M&C’s giving away a gift pack from the film and a copy of the Blu-ray.
A reinvention of the George A. Romero classic, the Overture Films release shocked audiences with its nightmarish vision of the American Dream gone horribly wrong, as a husband and wife find themselves battling for survival as their friends and family descend into homicidal madness.
The film was directed by Breck Eisner (Sahara) and stars Timothy Olyphant (“Deadwood,” “Justified”), Radha Mitchell (Surrogates), Joe Anderson (Across The Universe and The Ruins) and Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th).
Synopsis: When a mysterious toxin accidentally enters the water supply, one by one the townspeople fall victim to an uncontrollable urge for sadistic violence and horrific bloodshed.
In an attempt to contain the epidemic, the military steps in, using deadly force to close off access into and out of town, but also abandoning the few healthy citizens to the escalating carnage.
For Sheriff Dutton (Olyphant), his pregnant wife Judy (Mitchell), medical assistant Becca (Panabaker) and deputy Russell (Anderson), Ogden Marsh is now a bloody arena bordered by wheat fields and farms.
Unable to trust former neighbors and friends, targeted by the authorities and terrified of contracting the illness themselves, they are forced to band together, in a desperate attempt to escape both their murderous neighbors -- and their government captors.
