Bloody Disgusting
"The crowd-pleasing alligator in a hurricane horror movie we always wanted (...) [It] is not just a fantastic, crowd-pleasing, popcorn-spilling scary movie (...) it’s one of the most unexpected and satisfying genre films of the year."  POS

"The film has a remarkably simple but effective premise (...) Alexandre Aja knows how to craft a suspenseful and scary thrill-ride"  POS

"'Crawl' has no pretense and not very much range; it's 'Jaws' set in an old dark house."  NEG

John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
"Accepting the film's own standard of plausibility, thrillseekers should appreciate the brisk pace with which scares, setbacks and possible escapes are delivered."  POS

Noel Murray
Los Angeles Times
"[It] is action-packed, with impressive special effects and some jaw-dropping images of mayhem and destruction. But a movie like this demands more storytelling discipline and logistical control"  NEU

"A group of alligators is called a 'congregation.' A bad movie about alligators is called 'Crawl.'"  NEG

"There’s just enough drama to draw us in (...) Another Grade A offering from 21st Century Master of Horror Alexandre Aja (…) Rating: ★★★½ (out of 5)"  POS

Jake Wilson
Sydney Morning Herald
"'Crawl' is not a good movie in any sense of the term. But unlike last year's overhyped and boring 'The Meg', it lives up to its schlock promise (…) Rating: ★★½ (out of 5)"  NEU

The Adelaide Review
"This is at times soggily familiar, but Kaya and Barry have much chutzpah and make it work. And there’s plenty of bite."  POS

"Aja is a generally spotty genre specialist, but this might be his tightest, most focused effort since 'Haute Tension' (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

"An enjoyable swampy romp (...) Aja’s knack for setting up stylishly cruel sequences is on full display (...) It does everything it claims on the tin"  POS

Norman Wilner
Now Toronto
"It has everything you want from the genre: decent jump scares, credible peril, a couple of nervous laughs, a fine sense of pacing and one serious gross-out moment – all delivered with expert timing and ruthless efficiency"  POS

Andrew Parker
The Gate
"[A] shockingly boring killer reptile movie (...) It takes its ludicrously implausible premise and poorly drawn characters so seriously that it doesn’t entertain in a 'so bad it’s good' way (…) Rating: ★ (out of 5)"  NEG
