The majority of rural communities have wells, instead of municipal water services. Shutting down the water from the water tower would only have affected those people living inside of the town itself or those close enough to receive municipal water. It would have done nothing to prevent contamination from groundwater sources.
This makes the mayor's comments about not shutting off the water even more incongruous as there are clearly fields surrounding his rural home so he would know the source(s) of water for his home and his area. See more »
Um, Dr. Dutton, my aunt's in town.
And she's sick too.
Phew, I'm going to need you to stay late tonight. You know, you should probably text your aunt - Scotty - and tell him you can't make it to the baseball game tonight.

George Romero's 1973 cult classic was a fun film. It focused a lot on the government and the scientists trying to figure out the cure. It also had some solid chaos in it. It was a very memorable low-budget film and when a remake was announced, I was not pleased.
Boy do I love it when I am wrong sometimes! The Crazies remake was a fun film. It had the tension, the violence, subtle social commentary regarding how the politics in America work, and it was a fun thrill ride. What I loved most was the violence. The story was pretty faithful to the original and all it needed to do was up the violence. Great fun and it kept you guessing when things were going to turn bad. The tension was perfect. Easily one of the better horror remakes I have seen in the last few years. My only minor gripe with this film was the ending. I won't spoil it, but it felt a little lame to me. However, I liked the movie so much, I want a sequel! How crazy is that?!
