Still, the industry continues to make them because, yes, foreign sales are continuously so strong that whatever financial disappointment greets them with local audiences, globally they're good to go. Plus, they're good breeding grounds for talent, especially those with more a commercial lean to their work. If they're made cheaply enough, these sort of films can become the best sort of advertisement for the director on a worldwide scale. If they turn out to be good films then that's just beautiful. Hell, Crawlspace is apparently already headed to British Blu-ray, which is more than can be said for most other Australian films of late (sadly).
Also out there are two eye-catching posters for the film. One appears to be going for a more contemplative science fiction tone, whereas the newest is a Drew Struzan influenced number by local artist, Hugh Fleming. Personally, I prefer the cleaner, sleeker first poster, but I understand that the second one is the kind that gets the online community in a tizzy so it makes sense from a buzz stand point to create it. I just think the Struzan-esque poster could have been less busy and it would have been better. Make the look of terror on the lead actress's face more noticeable by not surrounding it with as much busy frou frou around it. Having looked at it more and more, I actually think it's just the green bubbles (?) that are distracting me. It'd look a helluva lot less convoluted without them. Of course, even with them it still's a better poster than what films with 100 times the budget seem to deliver so it's basically a win all 'round. And, hey, props on a good font!
Of course, this movie isn't to be confused with another Aussie genre title named simply Crawl. We spoke about that one earlier, remember? As for Crawlspace though, I'm not sure when it will be getting a release, but I suspect some time in 2013 is on the cards. Lucky Canberra residents can catch it at their local film festival this coming November.
So, I was looking for a YouTube video of Lisa Simpson's hilarious "Jeremy's... Iron" line because I couldn't think of a punny title for the entry. In the process I found this. It's one of the strangest videos I've found and I have no idea what inspired the person to make it, but it made me bellow with laughter. Just watch and you'll see.
Yeah, that feels like an appropriate place to leave it.
