Crawl

Bad alligators, bad alligators, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, when they come for you?

There’s a Category 5 hurricane knockin’ on the door, and some large, scaly predators swimming around down in the basement in this finely-cured hunk of cinematic cheese.

College swimmer Haley goes back for dear old dad (Saving Private Ryan’s Barry Pepper), who was working on the family home, and the duo find themselves confined in small, damp places dancing a deadly water ballet with some toothy killers.

The filmmakers find some creative ways to ramp up the suspense, and everything has a nice … bite … to it.
