A FA­THER and daugh­ter (Kaya Scode­lario, pic­tured) dis­cover they are far from the top of the evo­lu­tion­ary food chain in Alexan­dre Aja’s di­a­bol­i­cal mas­ter­class in sus­tained ten­sion and jump-out-of-your-seat scares.

Set in Florida dur­ing a cat­e­gory five hur­ri­cane, Crawl is es­sen­tially Jaws with al­li­ga­tors, al­beit with con­sid­er­ably more on-screen gore cour­tesy of the French di­rec­tor of the 2006 re­make of The Hills Have Eyes. There are plenty of hidey­our-eyes mo­ments as the apex preda­tors evis­cer­ate or death-roll al­most every char­ac­ter who dares to dip a toe into ris­ing flood wa­ters un­leashed by Mother Na­ture’s fury.
