The Crazies Doesn't Look Terrible, Right?

I need some help. Please watch this trailer and let me know what you think.
Right now, I'm pretty damn excited for this movie. I've never seen Romero's original but it's headed towards my house as I type. There's a small part of me that thinks this remake could be really cool. I love the premise, the special effects don't appear too heavy-handed, and Timothy Olyphant is underrated in my book.

I understand that it's getting released in February, a month not usually known for it's Oscar contenders, and that it's directed by the guy responsible for Sahara but I'm willing to look past all that. I'm getting downright amped for The Crazies.

And that's why I need your help. If I'm way off-base here, please, let me know. If this movie's going to suck, please, let me know. I gotta get some feedback here. Otherwise, I'm headed straight for a letdown of The Village proportions.

It looks pretty cool. As far as big budget horror films go. There are a few images that are pretty cliche (like the knife sliding against the wall) but if they don't dwell on those cliches too long it could be totally rad.

The pitchfork dragging on the floor was cool though!

I get a " The Mist" sorta vibe, I do really like Josh Duhamel, but we shall see if her can stand alone. The preview looks good, but we have been down this road before, "Adventureland" and " The Hangover" good previews crap movies. so i have come to not judge a movie by its preview.

The original is disappointing. I have decent hopes for this remake.
