Cast & Crew
Like a lot of these films, the ideas are often better than the execution, but this one works more than most, anchored by its clever concept and the young performers committed to pulling it off.
Crawlers is a film that knows its limits, strengths, and how to play to each.
Brandon Zuck's (Swipe Night) Crawlers is such a fun experiment. Crawlers perfectly skews towards a young adult audience as it presents an unconventional look at alien doppelgängers while also managing to say something important.
An '80s homage should be a guilty pleasure, but I was bored out of my gourd.
As a person with Irish heritage, I am accustomed to wincing frequently throughout any attempted "entertainment" that is supposedly tailored to Saint Patrick's Day. Crawlers did not make me wince, mostly because it's brisk, brusque, and cheerful.
I hate that I didn't like CRAWLERS. I generally try to find the positive in everything I watch, but this was pretty bad.
Titles like Crawlers don't reach as far as viewers deserve. Lows are expected in any anthology that spans 90ish minutes altogether, but the downs are felt so much harder when every entry is 90ish minutes itself.
