Product Description

FROM THE PRODUCER OF 'WOLF CREEK' Deep beneath the sands of the remote Australian outback lies 'Pine Gap', a top secret research facility established by the US and Australian Governments. When all contact is lost with the military compound, a heavily armoured special forces unit is sent in to find out what has happened. As their search takes them deeper into the bowels of the labyrinthine facility, they soon discover that something terrible has escaped. Under attack and with their numbers dwindling, the remaining soldiers must fight their way out through a steel maze that crawls with unimaginable terrors. In the darkness, when the bullets run dry, all that's left is to pray for a quick death…

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmm? 12 Jan 2013
By D. Krol TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
*PLOT*
A team of navy seals are sent into a facility (Known as Australias area 51) to exterminate a bunch of escaped criminals (or so they think) upon arriving at the facility, they discover that there is more to this place than meets the eye. A game of cat and mouse through the building vents and tunnels then ensues.

I was really looking forward to this one and got to see it last night. The first 20 minutes were really promising and set up the rest of film quite nicely. The problem was, the rest of the film took a totally different direction and got itself in a huge muddle.

Crawlspace isn't a bad film by any means but had it have taken the route that the first 20 minutes set up, it could have been so much better. Instead we are treated to a series of flat and unimaginative plot twists, which at times do tend to make the film drag.

There is plenty of action and a fair amount of gore at least and the film looks and sounds really good, the effects are nicely done and the acting for the most part is decent enough.

*slight spoiler coming up*

I think the biggest disappointment for me was that after viewing the trailer and then the first 20 minutes, we see the team chased through the facilities vents by a large, deranged, mutant gorilla type creature, which looked really cool. But then you expect this to be the basis of the movie and unfortunately, that's the last we see of the creature since the film takes a more "Scanners" type of route.

If you are into sci-fi movies and you enjoyed films like Aliens and Scanners for example, then there are elements here you will no doubt enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool movie. 24 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
This is an Aussie Indie movie and reminded me a lot of the first time I watched Screamers with Peter Weller. It holds that element of gritty sci-fi rather than loads of explosions and CGI. It's pretty bloody and holds a sense of the unknown. The effects are good and the acting too and it keeps you guessing till the end. I liked it a lot and would recommend it to any sci-fi fans. Just don't expect Alien like effects.

4.0 out of 5 stars sci-fi gore 11 Mar 2013
Format:DVD
I won't go into to much detail but basically a armed squad are sent to pine gap research facillity which is a secret base created by the australian & u.s governments in 1966.All contact with the facillity was lost fifteen hours earlier and the squad have orders to kill the research subjects on sight and find out what's gone wrong.Theres one problem when the squad get inside they come across eve who is one of the subjects they should kill but it turns out she's the squad leaders ex wife.The film starts out great for the first thirty minutes or so but the middle tends to drag quite a bit,however if you stick with it it picks up towards the end with some good plot twists.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can anyone say `Aliens?' 29 Mar 2013
Format:DVD
We're told by the writing at the beginning of `Crawlspace' that all contact with a top secret Australian military base has been lost (don't you just hate it when that happens?) and now, the only thing left to do is send in a platoon of gruff, rough-and-ready soldiers (think that squad of `Colonial Marines' from `Aliens') armed with motion trackers (think those `motion trackers' the Colonial Marines used in `Aliens') to see what's gone wrong.

Of course Aliens had about an hour of screen time before the Marines arrived. In that time we were shown who was who and character was developed. In Crawlspace, we're just shown them in a helicopter arriving at the facility. Of course there's the cocky one (think Hudson from Aliens) and the tough female one (think Vasquez from Aliens) and the dependable one (who, in my opinion, was Australia's answer to Jason Statham).

Once inside the base they creep around tunnels and air ducts (think a cross between the air ducts Newt leads Ripley through at the end of Aliens, only with those circular doors that were being closed behind Captain Dallas in Alien) and other sets that look straight out of the colony on LV-426. Then, while doing so, we're treated to some `first person' shots showing our heroes' gun barrels that make you feel like you're playing Doom while some of the lines the characters speak are directly lifted from Aliens (in particular the scene where the Colonial Marines first get attacked under the Cooling Towers and their motion trackers are going crazy).

So, what's waiting for our Aussie Colonial Marines?

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 12 Mar 2013
By P. Waller VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
What relevance this dross film has to Pine Gap begs belief. It is a satellite tracking station operated by the US and Australian governments and not anything to do with research. All we have are soldiers chasing whatever in supposedly underground vent systems. It is filmed mostly in a very dim light and shadows. There is certainly no story.
