Storyline

Against all logic, the competitive swimmer, Haley, drives into the mouth of a furiously destructive Category 5 hurricane on a collision course with her hometown of Florida, to check in on her estranged father, Dave. There, in their weather-beaten house amid a rapidly sinking and alligator-infested town, Haley and her father find themselves trapped in the labyrinthine mess of their flooded crawl space, where a merciless pair of six-metre predators is silently stalking them. Now--as Haley and Dave are gasping for air in the claustrophobic basement--only their will to survive can help them stand a chance against the scaly adversaries' powerful jaws. Can they escape without getting eaten alive? Written by Nick Riganas

Did You Know?

Trivia

The last name of the main protagonists is 'Keller', which is the German word for 'basement'. The largest part of the film takes place in a basement. However, it remains arguable whether this was intended by the film makers. See more »

Goofs

The crawlspace is ringed by a series of decorative lattice made by brick appearing weakly held. Any series of sharp bangs could easily make hole(s) large enough for the two to escape to the outside. There was a toolbox, pipes, etc. for available implements. See more »

Laughable yet thrilling
29 July 2019 | by NYAmicasSee all my reviews

I cannot rate this as a 7 because this isn't a very memorable film although it is thrilling and we'll made. Once the conflict begins you are on the edge of your seat with worry for the protagonists it is when they waste screen time with unnecessary dialogue that have nothing to do with the dangers at hand the movie appears campy.

I did enjoy the performances of the small cast and of course the gators. It's a pretty fun filled movie so give it a shot.
