About Crawl

A seedy, small-town bar-owner hires a mysterious Croatian to murder an acquaintance over an unpaid debt. The crime is carried out, but a planned double-crossing backfires and an innocent waitress is caught in the crossfire. Now a hostage in her own home, the young woman is driven to desperate measures in a frantic bid for survival.

A stylish, atmospheric neo-noir with shades of Blood Simple and Red Rock West, CRAWL is the debut feature of Australian brothers Paul and Ben China. Darkly humorous, unrelenting and capped off by a blood-curdling and unforgettable climax, your nerves won’t let you forget CRAWL!

“Not since the Coen Brothers Blood Simple has there been a more exciting thriller debut… A nail-bitingly effective study in slow-burning terror… Scary, Sly, and Sexy… A twisted and skilful homage to film noir"

Alan Jones, FrightFest

“A fantastic achievement in ratcheting up tension and suspense"

Ain't it Cool News

“A thrilling cinematic work crafted with dark nuance and graceful skill”

SBS Film

"Every single scene is choreographed to perfection… filled with suspense and dark humor"
