Crawl trailer: Hurricanes, Alligators, and Floods, Oh My!
Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Crawl, the new horror film from director Alexandre Aja, the man behind the B-movie hit Piranha 3D and The Hills Have Eyes remake. Starring Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile) and Barry Pepper (Saving Private Ryan, The Green Mile), check out the Crawl trailer in the player below!
When a massive hurricane hits her Florida hometown, Haley (Kaya Scodelario) ignores evacuation orders to search for her missing father (Barry Pepper). Finding him gravely injured in the crawl space of their family home, the two become trapped by quickly encroaching floodwaters. As time runs out to escape the strengthening storm, Haley and her father discover that the rising water level is the least of their fears.
Crawl was written by Shawn and Michael Rasmussen, who wrote John Carpenter’s last directorial outing The Ward. Crawl is produced by horror icon Sam Raimi, the man behind the Evil Dead franchise, and Craig Flores, who’s known for his work producing the 300 films.
Crawl marks a deliberate move by the studio to aim for a lower-budgeted horror movie, hoping for more box office success like their recent release, A Quiet Place. Directed by and starring John Krasinski, the film was produced for just $17 million and has since grossed over $314 million at the global box office and is Paramount’s highest grossing domestic release since 2016’s Star Trek Beyond.
Crawl arrives in theaters July 12.
