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.

Went to see Crawl with my 18-year-old daughter and my sister-in-law. We were all in agreement on this one. It was okay. Does the man-eating beast genre well. But probably would have made a better TV movie instead of a $10 a ticket big screen one. The plot isn't bad, but the people make constant "covienent" mistakes that get them in trouble. Typical horror movie stuff. But what father tells their daughter to swim through the monster-infested water to save them?

There are lots of jump scares, some were pretty good most predictable. But still lots of fun to scream and laugh with friends about. And while this is fiction, how many limbs can a person get mauled before they can't fight and swim/run anymore? Apparently, more than two.

The best part was the alligators. I don't know how much was CGI or if any of it was real, but they looked great! 

Another important thing...there is a dog (named Sugar). I don't want to spoil so you have to highlight the black box to know if the dog lives: YES!

If you like these type of movies then you will want to rent/on-demand this one. It's worth seeing, just not at theater prices.
