Horror, Thriller
The latest remake of a George Romero film is pretty good, thanks to director Breck Eisner. The drinking supply of a small town in Iowa gets poisoned, and a bunch of residents start going seriously nuts. Timothy Olyphant is his usual great self as the town sheriff trying to figure out who drank the bad water, and who is just crazy to begin with. Eisner proves he knows his way around a horror film—I jumped more than once—with a movie that’s well-written and good-looking. The Romero remakes of late are actually better than the films Romero himself has been making. I wonder if they will remake Monkey Shines or The Dark Half. That would be interesting.
