Crawl Bitch Crawl

When I was a kid at summer camp, some other kids put me in one of those arctic sleeping bags where only your face sticks out.  They tightened the straps.  I couldn't move.  I began to sweat and my body began to struggle in the constricting bag.  I began to panic and yelled to be released.  The kids laughed - I became even more panicked. Finally, one kid sensed my panic and let me out. That was the first time I truly felt the anxiety of claustrophobia.

Imagine what it would have been like if the bag was a tunnel and something was chasing you through it...

The trailer for Crawl Bitch Crawl has much going for it including a clear mission: deliver the last known fertile woman to safety.  It made me think of several things.  I thought of that Clive Owen film, Children of Men. I thought of playing Doom 3 and always feeling claustrophobic going through narrow spaces trying to avoid nasty monsters and, of course, death.  I thought of that terrible film, Legion, which was a poorly executed rip-off of a Huss Elassal script called, Protecting Mrs. Memphis.   The other thing that struck me was the poster...


The poster is kind of misleading for how cool this movie looks from the trailer. While I'm not crazy about the title either, the story told in the trailer (synopsis below in press release) is clear, interesting, packed with action, suspense, cool visuals and a general sense of claustrophobic panic.  It doesn't go too far and creates a sense of urgency and anxiety felt by the characters that jumps off the screen and sucks in the viewer.  Nice work.

I very much look forward to seeing this film... I just don't know where, yet.

Here's the press release - please support this project:

  1. From all of us here working hard on making CRAWL BITCH CRAWL a gritty grand fun scifi horror ride - a huge thank you for sharing with your audience our movie. We deeply thank you. We mean that. Knowing that large studio backed films grab more eyes - we are humbled that you take the time to shine the light on Indie films as well. TY - Director: Oklahoma Ward

    (side note, we have about 10 versions of the poster that we are testing out before going with just one. Thank you for the feedback on it - so far it seems the one you posted, a darker toned version -- and one with the tunnel and people crawling in it are pretty much tied via comments and people voting. By the time we hit official release we - should have that all sorted out. ;-)

    Again - thank you deeply for the post and thoughtful write-up.

  2. Oklahoma, Nicole,
    Thanks for sending the info and thanks for your comments. Crawl Bitch Crawl looks like it's going to be a great movie. I am always humbled by independent film makers, their talent, and the incredible amount of commitment involved in film making. It's inspiring.
    Best of luck!

  3. This brings me back to one of my all-time favorite movies: "Aliens" and one of my all-time favorite scenes in that movie. How do I watch this movie?
