Mike ‘the movie guy’ DVD Review: Crawl or Die
So I checked out the sci-fi/horror flick CRAWL OR DIE.
Wait! First let me say that I actually went out and bought this movie – from Wal-Mart. Can we say nightmare?! (lol) THAT was an adventure that could have been made in to a mini movie itself. (lol)
So lets talk CRAWL OR DIE.
In a future devastated by disease, a virus has swept Planet Earth. A virus so deadly that it has not only left the planet completely uninhabitable, but has also killed off the only hope humankind has of repopulating the species fertile women. All, that is, except one. Special Forces have been called in and given the mission of delivering the only survivor to her new home planet, Earth Two. All at the top of their individual fields, the team tasked with protecting and delivering the young woman known only as The Package is made up of six members: Mic, the leader of the unit; Big Guy, an explosives expert with a knack for mountain climbing; Sniper, a crack-shot Scotsman; Snoop, experienced in Technology and Telecommunication; Doc, a Harvard Medical Professional; and Tank, a tough-as-nails, no nonsense career soldier, and the only female of the group. Classified as a Blue Planet, the team sets off for Earth Two, believing their destination to be both safe and unoccupied. They were dead wrong. Forced underground upon landing, the team finds themselves in a bunker being hunted by an unseen force. Left with no options, they must wind their way through an endless set of tunnels and rooms that decrease in size with every step forward they take. Fighting exhaustion, claustrophobia, and a bloodthirsty creature that is immune to their bullets, the team must crawl deeper through the quickly shrinking subterranean tunnels. They have no choice. The creature is closing in behind them and their mission is clear: Protect the Package at all costs. Who will survive in this terrifying game of cat and mouse?! When you have a homicidal monster on your heels, and a two-foot wide dirt tunnel in front of you, your only option is to Crawl or Die.
I dug this movie. For being a indie/low budget flick – it was pretty solid. What little special effects it had – it was pretty cool. The creature chasing everyone…pretty simple and to the point. It got the job done. It kind of reminded me of creature in ALIEN.
All of the characters were believable. I soooo wanted the doctor in this movie dead within the first 10 minutes. (lol) The violence was cool.
Now lets get to the stuff I hated. The main girl Tank (played by Nicole Alonso) – her having to CRAWL through all these freaking tunnels. FUKKKKKK!! That drove me fuking crazy!! See – I have a thing for heights and being in tight places. Yeah. I don’t like that shit. (lol) CRAWL OR DIE played with my emotions. The more I watched – I was like “No way. She’s going in there?!” and to avoid being killed…Tank has to crawl through tunnels – just when you think she’s hit a dead end – HELLL NOOOO – she keeps crawling and crawling!! FUKKKK!! So when I say I ‘hated’ it – I don’t mean the movie itself but what those bastards put me through. (lol) The title of this movie is exactly what it’s all about…CRAWL. OR. DIE.
I give CRAWL OR DIE… 3 1/2 out of 5 popcorns! If you’re a fan of strong chicks with a nice booty, movies like ALIEN and THE DECENT…CRAWL OF DIE is definitely for you.
Oh…and make sure you watch the outtakes – pretty funny.
