Ready for one more cracker before the summer is over?
It was the best part of a year ago when we first called it, and it looks like we've been proven right.
We said that Crawl was likely to be the most fun movie of 2019, and off the back of the reactions to the first screening of the movie in the States, we feel safe in saying that we are 100% correct.
A group of lucky journos were brought out to the Paramount lot in Hollywood, Calfornia and given an early look at the film, and just take a look at these reviews and try not to be excited.
First up, we have Perri from Collider:
#CrawlMovie is a batshit, wild summer thrill! I'm a pretty quiet movie watcher but that went out the window here. Forget "edge of your seat" - had to stop myself from jumping out of it a few times. See this one on the big screen with a packed house.

William from Critical Acclaim:
#CrawlMovie is my kind of movie. Efficient, scary, funny, (okay, okay, kinda dumb), and with an exhilarating sense of cosmic hopelessness, where everything that could possibly go wrong does, which makes for a really good time in the theater. Definitely a film to see with a crowd. pic.twitter.com/Z8JldIfZ4q

Drew from Moviefone:
Secret’s out: #CrawlMovie is the horror movie of the summer, an ingeniously realized creature feature classic full of @AlexandreAja’s patented combination of white knuckle suspense set pieces and gnarly gore. It delivers big time. 🐊 pic.twitter.com/0ca65WSx5i

Michael from Cinema Blend:
#CrawlMovie is a fast, vicious, and nasty summer thrill ride. It plays a tight, effective game; and it's the sort of movie that the warmer months used to deliver between blockbusters. Hot damn was it fun, and I'm ready to see it again. Oh, and see it with an audience. Worth it. pic.twitter.com/7lWuDfqWEr

In case you'd forgotten, Crawl tells the story of a father (Barry Pepper - Saving Private Ryan) and daughter (Kaya Scodelario - The Maze Runner) who get caught in their flooding home after a hurricane hits Florida, but also unleashes a family of alligators in the area that decide to hunt them down.
It is directed by Alexandra Aja (The Hills Have Eyes), and written by friends of The Big Reviewski, Michael and Shawn Rasmussen!
