“… a solid mostly forgotten gem.” – Joshua Miller, CHUD.com
Landlord Karl Gunther (Klaus Kinski – Nosferatu The Vampyre) seems like a conscientious landlord who looks out for this female tenants. What they don’t know is that he has an elaborate network of crawlspaces that he uses to watch their every move. Can a new prospective renter stop this apartment building’s rapid turnover rate…or will Gunther continue to make a killing?
Also starring Talia Balsam (The Kindred) and Tané (Death Spa), directed by David Schmoeller (Tourist Trap, Catacombs, Puppetmaster) and featuring a haunting score by Pino Donaggio (Dressed To Kill, Blow Out, Piranha), this disturbing and truly creepy film is driven by a compelling performance from Kinski.
Why We Love It
“Crawlspace is another nice showcase for Kinski's patented brand of weirdness. The film is quite disturbing and not for the faint of heart, but for those who like twisted scares, Crawlspace offers quite a few…For horror fans, Crawlspace comes Recommended.” – Jeffrey Kauffman, Blu-ray.com
“Obviously Kinski devotees need to pick this one up post haste, but even if you're not a diehard Klaus fan, if you appreciate twisted horror movies with some creatively sick set pieces and a good score, you'll likely find that Crawlspace is worth checking out. It's a well-made picture and Shout! Factory have done right by it with this Blu-ray release, offering up the film in excellent condition with solid audio and a nice selection of extras as well. Recommended.” – Ian Jane, DVD Talk
“Scream Factory’s Crawlspace Blu-ray is definitely an improvement over the out of print MGM double feature (with The Attic) and I hope this release will attract a little more attention for such a neglected film. Chances are few people reading this review will be as over the moon about the film as I am, but all ‘80s horror and/or exploitation fans, as well as Klaus Kinski devotees owe it to themselves to see it at least once.” – Samm Deighan, Diabolique Magazine
