Trailer Watch: Crazies, Air, Fairy, Alvin, Girl

The Crazies
A remake of George Romero’s black comedy/horror cult film, there’s a few chilling shots here (namely involving a harvester and a pitchfork). The always effective but overused ‘Donnie Darko’ cover version of “Mad World” in the later half is an odd but effective choice. Sadly the trailer starts out promising something different and far more interesting (people quietly going mad) than it ends up being (manic zombie “Resident Evil” style bullshit). Oh well.
