Celebrating the work of the late George Romero, BFMAF 2017 presents a restoration of his 1973 cult classic The Crazies.

The greatest horror director of all time, Romero pioneered the zombie genre with masterpieces Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, but The Crazies is the film that quite literally drove him to insanity.

In Romero’s rarely screened sci-fi horror, inhabitants of Evans City become crazed killers after a top-secret government bio-weapon infects the town’s water supply with a deadly virus.

The Army are ordered to shoot on sight, officials threaten to nuke the area while quarantined residents tote dynamite and knitting needles in a fight for survival. Contagion and chaos ensue in bloody Romero-style Armageddon.
