Buzz

“A slow-burning, Coen Brothers-esque home invasion thriller that takes everything that was good about Blood Simple, throws in a little No Country For Old Men and sets it all in the vast landscape of Australia” – Blogomatic3000

Crawl is light years ahead of most horror films emerging from the UK and US, both in terms of technical achievement and atmosphere. It does not disappoint. One of my top films of 2012″ – Andy Erupts

“A thrilling cinematic work crafted with dark nuance and graceful skill” – Seven Billion Stories and Counting

Programmer’s Opinion

While watching CRAWL it is impossible to not draw a comparisons to BLOOD SIMPLE and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN but what draws me into this fun little thriller is the China Brothers use of silence throughout the movie. The Coen Brothers thrive on dialogue and the China brothers thrive on silence that is punctuated with a score that feels like an old Hitchock movie.  CRAWL is the debut feature film from two new yet skilled film makers. I am very happy that we are able to present the Canadian Theatrical Premiere of this fun thriller from Australia. – John Allison
