The future... A team of soldiers try to make their way out of a maze of underground tunnels while being hunted down by a deadly creature.
A relentless and grim indiefilm, reminiscent of The Decent, in terms of tight spaces, part homage to Alien with it's creature design. It's a dark film with tight metal shafts, torch lit, choking soil filled tunnels as Tank and company try to find there way out.
Lead Nicole Alonso's performance as Tank and costume peaks interest, Torey Byrne and David Paul Baker are notable.The practical creature design deserve a mention being well hidden until the closing act.
Given the nature of the film the dialogue is sparse and the sound design is effective. Director/writer Oklahoma Ward's Crawl or Die (a.k.a Alien Crawl) is a slow burning low budget feature that will certainly disturb claustrophobics. It does a lot with its limited budget.
Worth checking out if you like the likes of The Dark Lurking (2010),Hunter Prey (2009), Cargo (2009), Crawlspace (2012).
