Crazies, The (2010)
The Crazies is the 2010 remake of the 1973 George A. Romero film of the same name, directed by Breck Eisner and produced by George A. Romero. The plot of the remake once again, revolves around a small town that is accidentally infected with a biological weapon codenamed "Trixie", which either kills its victims or turns them into mindless, bloodthirsty killers (similar to the Rage-infected victims from the film 28 Days Later), the efforts of both the surviving townsfolk attempting to survive and stay alive, and the efforts of the United States military to isolate the threat and eliminate it. However, in this film, the location of the small town has been changed from Evans City, Pennsylvania, to the fictional town of Ogden Marsh, Iowa, and the general focus of the plot revolving more around the surviving townsfolk and not so much on the military's quarantine efforts. Nevertheless, the film received much positive reception and was a better financial success compared to its predecessor. The film's cast includes Timothy Olyphant, Danielle Panabaker, and Radha Mitchell.
The following weapons were used in the film The Crazies:
Sheriff Dutten (Timothy Olyphant) carries a Glock 19 as his sidearm. He is seen using it against Rory Hamill in the film's opening and later on when he is searching the town's morgue.
Deputy Russell Clank (Joe Anderson) finds a Glock 26 in a crashed SUV. He takes it for himself and threatens David and Judy with it, but is later disarmed of it by David.
Smith & Wesson Model 27
Sheriff Dutten (Timothy Olyphant) retrieves a Smith & Wesson Model 27 with a 3.5" barrel from a lockbox in his desk after the military confiscates his Glock and other weapons at the station. He loads it with .38 Special cartridges as seen on the headstamp. The backstory of the weapon reveals that David's father was the former sheriff of the town and surrounding county, and the Smith & Wesson Model 27 was his duty revolver.
Unknown Smith & Wesson Semi-Automatic
Jesse draws an unknown Smith & Wesson semi-automatic pistol on Sheriff Dutten at the truck stop. The pistol is not seen clearly enough to identify, but it appears to be a third generation Smith & Wesson semi-automatic because of its distinctive 4" barrel, slide, grips, and trigger guard. The pistol has a round trigger guard and no decocker-safety combination on the slide. It's entirely plausible that it is a Smith & Wesson 5946. There also appears to be an object by the grips, so it could also be a 5926 with a frame mounted decocker, but it could just be a glare from the slide release.
Rossi Overland Double Barrel Shotgun
In the beginning of the film, Rory Hamill (Mike Hickman) walks onto the baseball field with a full length Rossi Overland double barrel shotgun.
Ithaca Model 37 Shotgun
When the three hunters discover the dead plane pilot in the swamp, one of them carries an Ithaca 37.
Deputy Russell Clank (Joe Anderson) wields a pistol gripped Ithaca 37 shotgun with extended magazine tube.
What possibly could be a Mossberg 930 is used by one of the hunters in the swamp and later when they are seen killing Crazies in the deserted town center.
- Note: It may be a Marocchi A12 semiauto shotgun based on the shape of the forend.
One of the hunters, Jesse (Brett Wagner), carries a Remington 870 in the swamp.
The Colt M4A1 Carbine is used by various U.S. soldiers, usually with 4x ACOG scopes and flashlights. At one point in the movie, a soldier aims down the scope, but a red flash is emitted like it is a laser sight.
One of the soldiers in the clean tent has an M16A2.
Remington Model 700 BDL
Sheriff Dutten acquires a Remington Model 700 BDL from Scotty McGregor (Justin Miles) in the garage.
One soldier uses an unidentified flamethrower to burn bodies at a farm.
General Dynamics M197 Vulcan
An AH-1G HueyCobra that pursues Dutten and his companions as they try to escape the town by vehicle is armed with a chin-mounted M197 Vulcan.
