Put Your Face In ‘The Crazies’ Trailer

The Crazies Trailer
When I watched the trailer for The Crazies I thought ‘the only thing wrong with this trailer is that I’m not in it’. – Problem solved. And it can be solved for you too.

You can now head over to this site, upload a photo, and see yourself running amok. Then e-mail the result to your nearest and dearest. Maybe the less ‘with it’ members of the family will believe you have become a movie star. Or think you’ve lost your hair and gone batsh*t mad. It did a good job with my photo, though for some reason gave me a french nose.

We’ve seen this video insertion trick done before in different forms, but I’m still surprised it’s not used more often for marketing. Does anyone know what the technique is actually called?

The Crazies is a remake of the ’73 George Romero horror about a town whose water supply has been poisoned by an unknown toxin, turning them into murderous psychopaths. Then the army get involved and start killing everyone on sight. Sounds like living in Baghdad.

The Crazies is out this Friday (Feb 26th) in the UK and US.

    The trailer for this film instantly reminded me of three things; Knowing, 30 days of night, and 28 days later.

    I hated Knowing, I liked the other two.

    I will enjoy being freaked out by this, and I plan on scurrying over to that site now to see my head run amok in the midst of the crazies.

    I’ve got the original of this on one of them old fangled video tapes, it’s not that bad a film. The new version looks good, but for some reason it reminds me of the Happening.

      It was made for the movie distributor by a company, but I don’t know who. Not a cheap thing to create.

      I’m afraid I don’t know how this is achieved technically. Or even what the term for it is (if someone out there knows please leave a comment below). All I was doing in this post was pointing readers to an example made specifically by this horror movie’s marketing team – http://makeyourfriendscrazy.co.uk
