CRAWL is JAWS for the climate change generation. Sea levels are rising, the nuclear family is disintegrating, local government couldn’t save us even if it wanted to, and the jaws are coming from inside the house

That, or it’s a xenophobic parable where the Statue of Liberty isn’t holding a beacon to welcome outsiders so much as she’s holding up a flare to flag down salvation from above

The daddy-daughter CPR setpiece is maybe the most unambiguous narrative expression of Freudian wish fulfillment I’ve ever seen committed to film

This movie is an earthbound INTERSTELLAR

It’s not just the mouth-to-mouth: it’s the explosive ejection of water from the lungs, it’s the gasping and heaving, it’s the “yes! yes! yes!”

It’s both intriguing and horrifying how something like Crawl can happen irl, in part cause of the failure of politicians & neoliberal capitalism to address climate change. With that said; amazing movie!! Would highly recommend, and I hope there’s a sequel!
