The amazing looking Australian thriller, Crawl, has been receiving some terrific praise, and some of it has been showcased on the film new poster (below). The stunning new trailer has just arrived, which also features plenty of quotes from some of the films top reviews, with one reviewer even liking it to No Country For Old Men!
The first trailer for the film arrived a few months ago, and you can view it here. That trailer was a gloriously unsettling affair with a wonderful build up of sounds to create a bizarre and unsettling piece of music. The latest trailer does not waste time with build up, and goes right for the action as we see a menacing cowboy stalking victims. There is plenty of violence, but the atmosphere seems to be what the film is really aiming for, and the trailer has tons of it.
The film is being released in the US later this year under the Bloody Disgusting Selects banner, however there are no release details yet for here in the UK.
The film won three awards at last years Screamfest, including Best Director, Best Actress and Best Cinematographer.
Paul China both writes and directs, and his brother Benjamin produces. Renowned cinematographer Brian Breheny (Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, The Hard Word) is onboard and was responsible for one of its awards at Screamfest. The cast includes the gorgeous Georgina Haig along with Andy Barclay, Paul Bryant, Lauren Dillon, William Garvey, Penny Anne Hoffmann, Paul Holmes, Baz McAlister and Catherine Miller.
“‘Crawl’ is a character-driven thriller set in an unknown, rural town. A seedy 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 suddenly becomes involved. Now a hostage in her own home, the young woman is driven to desperate measures for survival. A suspenseful, yet darkly humorous chain of events builds to a blood-curdling and unforgettable climax.”
