"14.9. Raivohulluutta aiheuttava virus leviää pikkukaupunkiin aiheuttaen päänvaivaa aluetta eristämään saapuvalle armeijalle. Romero näyttää pieniä väläyksiä neroudestaan sisällyttämällä helposti ohitettavia yksityiskohtia siitä, miten miehitystilanteessa armeijalla ei loppujen lopuksi ole yhtään mikään hallinnassa. Sotilaat ryöstelevät ja pelleilevät tilanteessa, jossa heidän tulisi olla ammattimaisia. Tämä itsessään on helposti The Craziesin parasta antia, sillä"

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 2 (50 movies items)

" One of Romero's early efforts, this is not one of his best. It's a competent picture, and it contains the same political undercurrent that runs through the Dead trilogy, this time focusing on the ineptitude of the government and army when dealing with a chemical disaster. The moments in which we follow a group of survivors trying to escape the quarantined town has it's points of excitement and suspense. But when the film deals with the political and military components of the story it becomes"

"October 30 This might actually be my favorite non-living dead Romero film. It's a really good movie that tells an intriguing story and it does have that social commentary that Romero is known for. The movie may have not aged well in certain respects, it's still a fun movie that's unfairly overshadowed by the remake. As much as I did like the newer version, I think both versions are good in their own right and I think the original is worth checking out if you liked the remake. "

"The Crazies (1973), a US Army plane carrying an untested bio-weapon (a virus code-named "Trixie") crashes near a small Pennsylvania town contaminating the water; infected victims either die or become violently homicidal; heavily armed U.S. troops in NBC suits and gas masks, soon arrive"
