Storyline

Against all logic, the competitive swimmer, Haley, drives into the mouth of a furiously destructive Category 5 hurricane on a collision course with her hometown of Florida, to check in on her estranged father, Dave. There, in their weather-beaten house amid a rapidly sinking and alligator-infested town, Haley and her father find themselves trapped in the labyrinthine mess of their flooded crawl space, where a merciless pair of six-metre predators is silently stalking them. Now--as Haley and Dave are gasping for air in the claustrophobic basement--only their will to survive can help them stand a chance against the scaly adversaries' powerful jaws. Can they escape without getting eaten alive? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

When Haley's father tells her to swim to the boat, he tells her that she can "Swim faster" than the many Alligators in the water nearby. However this would be highly unlikely as the average adult Alligator swims at speeds up to 20 mph, While 23 time Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps topped out at about 6 mph. See more »

Crazy Credits

Right after the last shot of the movie, as the credits begin, Bill Haley's "See You Later Alligator" plays - a wacky, upbeat 1950s rock song that is wildly out of place with the tone of the film. See more »

Cheesy and campy, but good old fashioned horror entertainment...
28 September 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Right, well initially I had some reluctance about sitting down to watch the 2019 movie "Crawl" given the rather poor reviews I had been reading of the movie in local media. But still, I was given the chance to sit down and watch "Crawl", and given the fact that I love movies and believe everything deserves a chance to be seen at least once, then of course I sat down to watch it.

Turns out that I definitely does not share the opinions of the people whose reviews I had been browsing through, because I was more than genuinely entertained with "Crawl".

Sure, the movie had its fair share of cheesy and campy moments, and there were times throughout the movie where you just cringed and curled up your toes, but this is a movie after all, not real life. This is meant for entertainment. And I was entertained. Indeed, things like water suddenly rising up to the roof of a building seemed so far out there that it was painful, and the fact that an alligator wasn't able to crash through a lousy plexiglass shower stall was just downright idiotic. But it was entertaining, and that is what mattered. A movie such as "Crawl" is not meant to be realistic, not even in the least bit, because if it was then the people would not have stood a chance against all those alligators and the rampart forces of nature.

Now, there is a feeling of old school claustrophobic horror movie to "Crawl", and that worked so well in favor of the movie, especially because it often felt like you were trapped in the cellar alongside with Haley (played by Kaya Scodelario) and Dave (played by Barry Pepper).

The special effects and CGI used in "Crawl" were good, very good actually, and the alligators were quite realistic. That definitely worked well in favor of the movie and the enjoyment of the movie.

"Crawl" is by no means a movie that revolutionizes the horror genre, nor is it a movie that brings anything new to the genre. But it is definitely entertaining and enjoyable for what it turned out to be.

My rating of "Crawl" is a solid six out of ten stars.
