    The Crazies DVD Review
    SRP: £16.99

    Picture

    Where this DVD really scores is with
    its beautifully remastered anamorphic
    1.66:1 transfer. Sure, there is some
    very minor grain inherent in the image,
    but the damage has been cleaned up,
    and colours look more natural and
    solid than they did previously.

    Sound

    On offer are dual-mono, DD 5.1 and
    DTS mixes, none of which offer much
    in the way of effects, but all of which
    bring dialogue to the fore, preventing it
    from getting muffled by the thin music
    score and occasional ambient effects.

    Extras

    First up is a commentary by Romero
    and Anchor Bay's Bill Lustig, which
    discusses Romero's career as well as
    the film itself. Following on from this is
    an interview with actress Lynn Lowry,
    which similarly takes in the entirety of
    her acting career. Also included on the
    disc are trailers, TV spots, a gallery, a
    Romero biography and film notes.

    Verdict

    A marvellous film, a remarkable transfer
    and decent extras. We would have to be
    crazy not to recommend this DVD.
