The Crazies (2010)

The residents of a small Iowa town have had their water supply tainted by a military plane carrying a biological agent that has crashed into the local river. The toxin is designed to disable a population, and that’s exactly what it does to the poor folks of Ogden Marsh who begin to turn on each other with cold, murderous rage.
