While Floridians continue to recover from the effects of an actual Category 5 hurricane hitting the state in October, a horror movie is set to come to theaters this summer about a fictional hurricane of the same strength hitting Florida and bringing man-eating alligators along with it.
Crawl, which was filmed in Belgrade, Serbia, will hit theaters in the U.S. on July 12. Its official trailer, however, was released Thursday.
The trailer shows Haley (Kaya Scodelario) as she attempts to find her missing father (Barry Pepper) in a home during the storm — only to become trapped as the flood waters rise and hungry alligators lurk.
Here’s the official synopsis of Crawl:
When a massive hurricane hits her Florida hometown, Haley (Kaya Scodelario) ignores evacuation orders to search for her missing father (Barry Pepper). Finding him gravely injured in the crawl space of their family home, the two become trapped by quickly encroaching floodwaters. As time runs out to escape the strengthening storm, Haley and her father discover that the rising water level is the least of their fears. From director Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) and producers Craig Flores (300), Sam Raimi (Don’t Breathe, Evil Dead) and Alexandre Aja, Crawl is a nail-biting horror thriller in theatres July 12, 2019.
So, Floridians, are you going to see Crawl? Why or why not?
