Critic Consensus: An action-packed creature feature that's fast, terrifying, and benefits greatly from a completely game Kaya Scodelario, Crawl is a fun throw-back with just enough self-awareness to work.

Critic Reviews for Crawl
Crawl could really do with some sense and structure to go along with all these earnest emotions.
Aja gleefully embraces the imperative of every horror film - that the dispensable characters have to die horribly so that we understand completely the consequences for the protagonists.
Crawl isn't Jaws, any day of the week, but it's crunchy Friday-night nonsense that knows what it's doing.
Outside: that is the weather. Inside: it is the swishy, corrugated, murder-eyed mega-lizards, CGI'd so skilfully they look more real than the real.
if you don't want to gasp and groan and wince and jump your way through all the pain and terror, and to feel the frustration of rising waters, circling reptiles and snapping teeth - then caveat emptor. The rest of us will be just fine with it.
