Or the CraZAZIES, if you prefer.
The esteemed 50P has already given you the plot outline here, and yeah, I'm Whirly/JSP piggybacking on that so I don't have to go into it.
I really enjoyed this flick. JSP mentioned in the comments of 50's review that part of the good is watching the main group deal with both the Crazies and the military. That was the exact thought I had in one of the more involved scenes with the military. "Jesus, I'm not sure who the hell is worse?!"
There are some really good tense moments - but not so much on the gore. I was actually expecting more on that front. The Crazies are clearly crazy, and the beginning of the infection is powerful - case in point:
But once things get moving and the military comes in, it's more about the main group getting out of town then dealing with Crazy run-ins. But I liked the group and it was that good bite-your-nails-because-you-know-something-bad-is-about-to-happen kind of flick.
(And then I got so excited to finally post, I forgot pictures! D'OH!)
