Did You Know?


Director Oklahoma Ward and actress Nicole Alonso said they planned on making two sequels and even got offers from studios who wanted to produce them, but they turned them down because they all wanted to turn Alonso's character Tank into a typical horror movie sex object, which is something the distributors of the first film also wanted to do. The studios wanted to include scenes showing her taking a shower, having sex, running around topless or just be fully nude in most of the films. They even wanted scenes where various monsters would try to rape her. Ward and Alonso ultimately decided to try and finance the sequels themselves just like they did this one, but as of April 2021, they still hadn't made them or any other films since this one was released.

relentlessly claustrophobic indiefilm
27 January 2015 | by amesmondeSee all my reviews

The future... A team of soldiers try to make their way out of a maze of underground tunnels while being hunted down by a deadly creature.

A relentless and grim indiefilm, reminiscent of The Decent, in terms of tight spaces, part homage to Alien with it's creature design. It's a dark film with tight metal shafts, torch lit, choking soil filled tunnels as Tank and company try to find there way out.

Lead Nicole Alonso's performance as Tank and costume peaks interest, Torey Byrne and David Paul Baker are notable.The practical creature design deserve a mention being well hidden until the closing act.

Given the nature of the film the dialogue is sparse and the sound design is effective. Director Oklahoma Ward's Crawl or Die (a.k,a Alien Crawl) is a slow burning low budget feature that will certainly disturb claustrophobics. It does a lot with its limited budget.

Worth checking out if you like the likes of The Dark Lurking (2010),Hunter Prey (2009), Cargo (2009), Crawlspace (2012).
