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

Trivia

In the scene where Haley looks down in the basement and the dog follows suite, barking, off-camera the trainers did some "speak" training with the dog using hand signals to encourage her to bark. When the girl walks downstairs to basement and a rat runs past her, the handlers used wooden light boxes with buzzers to train and film with the rats. When the rats were released by the handler, the light and buzzer in the box was triggered by the trainers and the rat ran towards the green light and into the boxes. See more »

Goofs

Alligators don't hunt communally. They also don't build underground nests because they need sunlight to keep the eggs warm. And female alligators try to seek secluded areas away from humans and other alligators to build their nests. See more »

Fast fun movie
12 July 2019 | by ybissatSee all my reviews

It's a little fun movie with some good jump scares here and there. Didn't know alligators could be this scary. It's a short movie and the actors did a pretty good job. If you're looking for something fun to watch, Crawl might please you.
