    I know a lot of stand-ins in the movie. Talked to some of the guys that worked on it quite a bit. They said it is going to be horrible.

    Re: The Crazies

    i saw the previews and thought the movie looked pretty cool, and pretty scary being from small town Iowa, you know what it is like on those quite eerie summer nights alone, I think this movie throws that kinda vibe out

    Re: The Crazies

    A good part of it was filmed in Lenox. About 10 miles from my hometown. I think all the community shots are of Lenox. I know for sure they did a scene at the baseball field and used the real Lenox baseball team for that part. In the movie some guy infected or whatever shows up during the game. The house at the beginning is a buddy of mines dad's. They paid him a ton of money just to use it for that scene.

    It might be a good one. I thought Devils Rejects was epic and everybody thought I was nuts.

    Re: The Crazies

    I saw the commercials for the movie, I don't know if I'll go to it in the theater, but I'll definitely watch it when it comes out on Blu-Ray... Lenox is only about an hour from my hometown. Neat.

    Re: The Crazies

    I grew up in Ogden, Iowa. So to see that it takes place in Ogden Marsh, Iowa is pretty cool. Probably won't see it in theaters but defiantly on DVD.

    Re: The Crazies

    I am from Lenox and was involved in the inner workings of preparation and staging of the production of this film. I won't go into great detail here. The farmer friend of mine who had the house burnt down was paid good money for the house and it was burned to the ground. It was located 1 mile West and 1/4 mile South of Lenox or 1 mile West of Michael's Foods if you know the area. Tim Oliphant played the lead if you are familiar with "Deadwood". The premier showing of the movie in Iowa is being selected at this time - Lenox does not have a theatre. The actual filming took place over about 6 weeks in April/May and Main Street was actually shut down for a week. The Iowa Film Tax Credit fiasco has put a damper on future films of this nature in Iowa, fortunately this one was done above board by the Production crew. It was a good experience for the community.
