New Crazies Stills Try To One-Up Romero's OriginalS

There's a bit of buzz around the new Crazies remake. Starring Timothy Olyphant, the film appears to have the same plot as the original, but with better make up and FX. But do these new stills really outshine the original?

The original came out in 1973, to mixed reviews. The new feature looks like an extra hyped-up stylized version of the original. While many people protest that Romero's other work is far superior, we've always been partial to this classic. Still, this new remake looks like it's delivering plenty of "crazy."

The official synopsis:

About the inhabitants of a small Iowa town suddenly plagued by insanity and then death after a mysterious toxin contaminates their water supply.

The film will be out Feb. 26th, 2010.
