Fear thy neighbor. I'm not sure why I'm so fascinated by the posters for this damn horror movie, but I just can't stop featuring them. Thankfully the is the last official poster for The Crazies that Overture is putting out and it has no faces or actors on it at all, only a pitchfork being dragged across the ground. You can probably tell that's also blood on the floor, but they had to make it look black on the poster so they wouldn't get in trouble. Creepy. There are a few other posters that just came out today as well, like this final Shutter Island one or this Lake Mungo one, but this Crazies poster is the best of the new batch. Check it out below!
The story revolves around the inhabitants of a small Iowa town who are suddenly beset by death and insanity after a plane crash lets loose a mysterious secret biological weapon into the water supply.
The Crazies is directed by Breck Eisner, of Thoughtcrimes and Sahara previously. The screenplay was written by Scott Kosar (The Machinist, The Amityville Horror) and Ray Wright (Pulse, Case 39). This is a remake of George Romero's 1973 film of the same name. Overture Films will be bringing it to theaters on February 26th, 2010 next year. You can follow the official Twitter for the film for more updates on this.

They may have changed the blood, but at least there's none of that 'orange/blue contrast' thing going on. Great poster.

Fuck every single one of you! breck,kosar,and wright. How dare you join in on the Hollywood cookie cut remakes being pulled out of everyone's non taleted asses. come up with YOUR OWN GODDAMN IDEAS...oh wait you can't come up with anything original.

Mr. Dustin, Hollywood has plenty of original ideas....all locked in a vault with no producer daring to touch them. Hollywood is dead scared of producing something original, and unfortunately, use brand names and fickle audiences to garner profit and continue dishing out remake after remake. But there is salvation - keep your eyes peeled on the indie circuit.... and stop paying for Hollywood remakes or other mainstream crap being shoved down our throats.

@4 - They are "scared" because of the significant financial investment each movie takes. Therefore they reduce the risk by using proven formula ideas.

since it's a remake I wont see it, but the poster is nice.
