Impressive and surprising
16 July 2014 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Some military unit is sent to a secret Australian/US military facility to kill everyone. On their kill list are a bunch of people in orange jumpsuits. We meet one of them, a pretty blonde girl. She's hiding in the vent ducts. The facility is on high alert, security teams are shooting anything in sight.

The military unit runs into this girl and it turns out that the commander knows the girl--it's his wife who he thought was dead. But there's something else in the facility-- some giant ape that is chasing them. The unit together with the girl escape in a room where they find other people. They are researchers who know what goes on in the facility. One of them talks about hallucinations, another about biomechanics. The blonde has a scar on her scull, she demands to know what they did to her. She takes one of the researchers with her, the unit takes the boss and his assistant with the them.

We learn that the blonde was indeed an experiment subject. She was military and volunteered for this program. Part of her brain was removed and replaced with part of another subject's brain. The goal of the project was to create psychics with the power to control other people's thoughts/ to implant hallucinations in their minds. At the same time other people became the guardian's of a person's mind, to protect it from psychics. All this because as the boss says, war is too important to be left in the hands of the military. We learn some more about the relationship of the commander with the blonde. And eventually we find out what happens with all these people.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie. People confined in a "crawlspace" rarely make for an entertaining movie. Although in this case people spend a lot of time in vents and ducts. And people going mad and hallucinating also makes for terrible movies. Put those two together and it sounds like you'll end up with an awful movie. But I'm glad to say that it's not the case with this movie at all. Amber Clayton is absolutely gorgeous. There's a bit of horror and some gore. But what impressed me were the ideas, the twists and surprises. Nothing turns out as expected at all, and just as you think you've figured things out, they hit you with another unexpected thing. The script is rich and shows depth, far more than most sci-fi/action/horror movies. Crawlspace is a remarkable effort.
