Crawl trailer: Kaya Scodelario tries to weather the storm
From The Poseidon Adventure to The Day After Tomorrow we've had plenty of natural disaster films over the course of cinematic history. Crawl ups the ante a little by trapping a woman inside a home being flooded during a hurricane and throwing in a bunch of predators for the fun of it. The film is also produced by Sam Raimi and as you will see in the trailer it follows quite a few horror beats. This will probably be a crowd pleaser, that if marketed well enough, should perform quite well on release. Check out the trailer for Crawl above to see for yourself.
The film centres on a young woman who, while struggling to save her father during a Category 5 hurricane, finds herself trapped inside a flooding house and fighting for her life against Florida’s most savage and feared predators.
Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) directs, with the cast starring Kaya Scodelario and Barry Pepper.
Crawl finds its way into US cinemas on July 12 and UK cinemas August 9.
