Crawl Ending Explained & Commentary (with Spoilers)
Despite Dave having his calf bone ripped out of his leg, and his arm, from the elbow down ripped off – her survive. Also, even with her being bit, dragged, tossed about, multiple times, Haley survives. They somehow make it out that basement and walk up the stairs, and make their way to the roof and get rescued. Oh, and somehow that dog lives too. Even though many people died where we often see it stand and considering it isn’t soft-spoken or fast, all things considered, it should have died.
Now, as for why the dad was in the house? Sentimental reasons. He was supposed to have sold the house but with him losing his kids, his ex-wife moving on with some man in Europe, the house was all he had left. As for why he was in the crawl space? That’s harder to say. Considering his radio and tool belt, I want to say he was checking the pipes, maybe clearing traps, but with the whole gator thing happening, it was hard to not forget the past when you were hearing a hissing sound or seeing people flung about like rag dolls.
Question(s) Left Unanswered
- How was it, with them bleeding from deep wounds, did Dave and Haley not bleed out or lose feeling in their limbs due to their tourniquets?
- Considering the size of some of those gators, did some come in through the opening of the garage door or was that drain pipe bigger than it appeared? Or was it they were raised in the space between the basement and the outside world hence how big they got?
Is A Sequel Possible?
Technically they could put the family through all this again either with alligators or a different animal, but even with this almost meeting its budget of $13.5 million this weekend, it has to double that to be a hit. Possibly more to guarantee a sequel. So I wouldn’t bet on seeing a Crawl 2.
