Welcome to Pierce County
Friendliest Place on Earth

What would you do if everyone in your hometown suddenly started acting not only completely crazy, but homicidal? If your friends and family members turned into glassy-eyed, uncontrollable monsters, what would you do to survive? If the small, desolate town you knew suddenly became a hell on earth, what measures would you take to ensure you and your loved ones survived? The Crazies, based on the 1973 movie of the same name, makes audiences ponder those haunting questions while delivering plenty of thrills. Breck Eisner (Sahara) directs this suspenseful reinvention of the George A. Romero classic.

A fast-paced and well-acted horror/thriller, The Crazies is a cut above most remakes. Surprisingly entertaining, this R-rated film — rated R for bloody violence and language — doesn’t rely on the unknown element, but takes a deeper look into events that could in fact occur in your own town. This non-fiction aspect of the story is what leaves you with lasting chills.
