"Crawl" has no pretense and not very much range; it's "Jaws" set in an old dark house.

Guilty of revealing its reptile a little too early, Crawl finds itself struggling to stifle audience titters as it attempts to keep lifting the thrills to new heights.

When it's really working - which is only about half the time - "Crawl" is an efficient and clever environmental adventure picture, set in a nice old house where suddenly nothing is safe.

Alexandre Aja's Crawl is a fun monster movie that relentlessly preys on humans' most primal fears.

Accepting the film's own standard of plausibility, thrillseekers should appreciate the brisk pace with which scares, setbacks and possible escapes are delivered.

...an enjoyable swampy romp...

Crawl is a very thrill packed movie like A Quiet Place and more especially It (2017). I still really liked it but it didn’t really live up to my expectations because most of the movie was pretty boring just the two main characters in the crawl space under the house for like an hour, which was not really needed. I also thought there would be much more action...

I haven’t been to a ‘horror’ movie in years so decided it was high time to be scared witless again. Hence I went to see Crawl. It was a bit edge of the seat, but only in the sense you knew what was going to happen…and it wasn’t pretty. I never realised that a person could survive quite a long time after being ripped apart by an alligator, after losing all...

Believe the hype, this movie is just what it claims to be. A chilly thriller that happens mostly in a flooded basement, it's very location-based, more Deep Blue Sea than Jaws - like Jurassic Park if they were a park full of crocodiles instead of dinosaurs. Efficiently acted by Kaya Scodelario with support from Barry Pepper.

You've probably seen your share of predatory-critter horrors that crank the silliness up to 11 and slide down to forgettably naff. Maybe you've seen some that take themselves too seriously and somehow come out more ridiculous. In Crawl, director Alexandre Aja flexes his ability to balance these genre poles: the laughs you're looking for come at the same...

Imagine JAWS with a Florida swamp full of sharks. Now imagine those Sharks are Alligators with an amazing knack for perfect horror / comedic timing. CRAWL is like an old school horror with modern day special effects and production values. A world with occupants that are fully aware they live in a place knee deep in gators, but for plot points and monster...

So snakes on a plane you say, so Sharks in a Tornado you say, hmmm alligators in your house per se....well let's just say I had smugly cast my aspersions as to what type of movie this might be before well before arriving, especially as I had not seen or heard anything about the movie like you normally do before release date. Enter tickets in hand two...

Loved how there was soo much action and the storyline got straight to the point! It was an awesome twist on a disaster movie. Was not predictable or too cliché, and the father daughter storyline was unique also. Loved how dramatic the attacking scenes were! Surprised how they didn't lose any limbs completely, just a few nibbles here and there. Absolutely...

Straightforward thriller CRAWL blew way past my expectations by delivering tight, tense scenes of attempting to escape nature's worst. Not a dull moment in the film. The alligators are extremely well rendered and the gore is not over the top, but believable. The crawlspace beneath the house is exactly right! I have seen a few of Aja's films, and CRAWL was...

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...

If you like thriller movies this is the one to watch. It keeps you on the edge of the seat most of the time. Kaya Scodelario did awesome job as lead actress.
