Gotta love those “crazy animalz help me pleeez” horror movies. From Night of the Lepus to Day of the Animals, Lake Placid, Piranha, and let’s not forget the mack daddy, Jaws. They all have a certain 1950s monster movie vibe that’s always a good time. But Crawl looks to belly up to the bar, and gotta say I’m here for it. Synopsis!
When a massive hurricane hits her Florida hometown, Haley (Kaya Scodelario) ignores evacuation orders to search for her missing father (Barry Pepper). Finding him gravely injured in the crawl space of their family home, the two become trapped by quickly encroaching floodwaters. As time runs out to escape the strengthening storm, Haley and her father discover that the rising water level is the least of their fears. From director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) and producers Craig Flores (300), Sam Raimi (Don’t Breathe, Evil Dead) and Alexandre Aja, Crawl is a nail-biting horror thriller in theatres July 12, 2019.
