Good character development
This is not a blockbuster and there isn’t a lot of zombie action, however this is an interesting movie with character and plot development. I started watching this movie while my spouse was at work, but when he got home he immediately got interested in the plot, even though he normally disregards “those zombie crap movies” I watch. He also liked, The Horde, World War Z, The Night Eats the World, and Overlord. So, I’m slowly but surely converting him over to be a zombie movie fan.
County of Emergency
A tame, low-budget re-tread of The Crazies. There are no zombies, only people who are driven mad after being exposed to a cloud of nerve gas unleashed when a nearby chemical plant explodes.
There are 4 main characters: our hero, who repeatedly acts in stupid ways like dropping his rifle after he sees a crazy, or dropping his lantern when he runs outside at night to try to get the attention of a passing military helicopter; a young husband and wife who also behave like idiots – she sits around knitting and worrying about whether she was impolite by not offering our hero a drink, and he runs outside screaming when he knows there are crazies roaming around; and a disaffected young diabetic girl, who also is, apparently, stupid. She sees the hero eating her candy bar and gets angry, but fails to mention she needs it as she is diabetic and allows him to finish it! Scenes like this make it hard for us to give a damn about these people.
The script is sloppy and contains loose ends. The hero’s fiancée is shown with a bullet in her side in the beginning but there is no explanation given as to how and where she got it. Why is angry girl reluctant to tell them she has diabetes? There are apparently only a handful of crazies roaming around the area, so why not make a run for it while everyone is healthy and fully armed, before diabetic girl goes into a coma? All this doesn’t make for compelling viewing. At least Jay Hayden, the hero, seems to be able to act, though he is given very little to do. The other 3, especially the husband, give poor line readings. It never feels like any of them are in that much danger, except for the diabetic who needs insulin.
Skip this and watch the remake of The Crazies, it’s better.
