Crawl (2019) JTAtkinson'S REVIEW
Old school creature feature fun
BY JTAtkinson nobody
You never know what you are going to get when it comes to creature feature horror, will it be suspenseful and frightening like Jaws or will it be a cheese fest like The Meg. I'm happy to say you get the best of both words here. Crawl was a ton of fun, once you get through the tired and true character development you will be treated to some of the most intense and high tension (pun intended, see Aja's back catalog) scenes since The Shallows or 27 Meters Down.
The actors deliver their best with what script the have, but shine when it comes to the action, I was right there panicking with them, gritting my teeth while they navigate the crawl space of their family home which has been invaded by alligators during a hurricane.
Crawl feels like an old school 80's horror plot with some beefed up new school effects, the CGI alligators look great, and there's enough gore to please all fans of horror. If you like what this movie says it is on the package then that's exactly what you are going to get.
