August 29, 2019
An acceptable date movie that has plenty of brain-dead thrills for its modest running time.
August 28, 2019
One of the most well-rounded films of Aja's career. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 27, 2019
It takes itself seriously enough [...], but at the same time, it never turns into a depressing or self-indulgent experience. [Full review in Spanish]
August 26, 2019
Crawl is the definition of good solid B-movie summer fun.
August 26, 2019
Crawl is a well-paced, nerve-shattering, bone-crushing thrill ride, one that'll make you think twice about going in the water.
August 26, 2019
Scodelario emerges as a scrappy, valiant presence who keeps her wits about her and all her toes intact.
August 26, 2019
Even though it's downright ludicrous, the movie is never played as a parody, homages to Jaws notwithstanding.
August 26, 2019
Crawl may hit predictable beats, but the continual escalation of each threat moves so rapidly that no respite is found until the credits roll.
August 26, 2019
Here, however, what could be a stupid screamfest is more convincing thanks to Scodelario, who seesaws realistically between fear and ferocity.
August 26, 2019
Aja gleefully embraces the imperative of every horror film - that the dispensable characters have to die horribly so that we understand completely the consequences for the protagonists.
August 26, 2019
There is no room for humor in Crawl but entertainment is assured thanks to the fast paced rhythm that its director has managed to grant it. [Full review in Spanish]
August 25, 2019
All-in, it's a fun, if not game-changing bit of gator-infused fun, that might overstep a little in its ambitions, but delivers plenty of crowd-pleasing moments.
August 25, 2019
Crawl is slick junk trying to pretend it's anything but, though Aja's tightly wound direction and two strong central performances can almost convince otherwise.
August 24, 2019
Note perfect, impeccably timed, thrillingly stressful, brilliantly cinematic, inventively gory, and under 90 minutes.
August 23, 2019
Aja tempers his well-crafted action with a puckish sense of humour, but never allows it to edge towards facetious. His priority here is clearly to give you as many waterlogged thrills as possible and Crawl delivers an exhilarating shock to the system.
August 23, 2019
Crawl is daft, naff, full of cheap jump-scares and doesn't know when to stop its preposterous sequences of events. But it gets to the point quickly and does its job. The Cuprinol of film.
August 23, 2019
The film's lean and mean plot could easily inspire one of those popular 'Florida Man' headlines, because like most good horror pictures, it begins with an act of blinding stupidity.
August 22, 2019
Brisk, businesslike and puckishly funny, Crawl is an enjoyable and admirably uncomplicated B-horror.
August 22, 2019
Looters and would-be rescuers ensure the body count is kept buoyant with knockout 'gator attacks while the game cast energetically sink their teeth into the pacy, punchy concept.
August 22, 2019
Crawl isn't Jaws, any day of the week, but it's crunchy Friday-night nonsense that knows what it's doing.
