The Crazies (1973) Directed by George A. Romero

The Crazies is a 1973 film by legendary horror filmmaker; George A. Romero. The film depicts the accidental release of a biological weapon upon a real life small town (for the time) called Evans City (located in Pennsylvania), and shows the perspectives of both the surviving townsfolk who are trying to stay alive and remain uninfected from the deadly bio-weapon that's code-named "Trixie" (Which will either kill it's victims or turn them into rage-induced infected individuals), and the United States military dealing out the quarantine protocols which includes locking down the town and killing anyone trying to escape. Despite being another great horror film by George Romero, the film did not do well at the box office, and as a result, garnered some mixed to negative criticism. Despite this, the film became a cult classic following the years after it's release. A remake of the film was released in 2010 under the same title; The Crazies.
