"I'm not sick!" Following last year's episodes on 2009 horror remakes, this year Horror BFFs Heather Wixson and Patrick Bromley will be looking back at horror remakes from 2010, and they're kicking things off with the reimagining of George A. Romero's The Crazies.
Kicking off their retrospective episodes on horror remakes released in 2010 that celebrate their 10th anniversaries this year, Horror BFFs Heather Wixson and Patrick Bromley put on their hazmat suits and head into Ogden Marsh for a revisit of The Crazies remake. Listen as Heather and Patrick discuss Breck Eisner's reimagining of George A. Romero's 1973 film of the same name, including the government-imposed quarantine, the unsettling behavior (and appearance) of the infected, the film's creepy kills, how it compares to its source material, and the heartfelt performances by Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell. So, whether you're "not sick" (as Joe Anderson's character screams) or you're getting over a cold (and hopefully not exhibiting signs of the bioweapon Trixie), sit back, relax, and enjoy a new Horror BFFs episode of Corpse Club!
