Something Extremely Unsettling is Living in Director Josh Stolberg’s Crawlspace

I enjoyed Alexandre Aja’s horror flick “Piranha 3D” enough to give screenwriter Josh Stolberg’s directorial effort “Crawlspace” a shot, and that’s overlooking the fact that he also penned the terrible 2007 Dane Cook comedy “Good Luck Chuck”. Although you can’t glean too much from the poster embedded below, the inclusion of cast members Steven Weber, Lori Loughlin, and Jonathan Silverman definitely gives off mixed signals. If nothing else, I’m intrigued.

Here’s what the film is supposed to be about:

The Gates family’s new dream home quickly turns into a living nightmare, in this disturbing thriller packed with suspense, horror and terrifying twists.

In a charming and quiet suburban town, Tim (Jonathan Silverman – In Case of Emergency) and Susan Gates (Lori Loughlin – 90210, Full House) have found their perfect new house, and their lively daughter Kayla has just returned home from college to help with the big move alongside her brothers, Shane and Taylor. But behind the picture of suburban bliss is an altogether more sinister story.

During the move, Tim reluctantly reveals his knowledge of the house’s dark past – the story of two small children who drowned in the pool and the parents who were forced to move out due to a foreclosure.

As the family settles in to their new home, a series of eerie events begin to suggest that all is not as it should be. Unexplained footsteps, misplaced tools, electronics going haywire and sinister warnings from their new neighbour quickly erode their happiness as anxiety and fear gradually take over their lives.

Unbeknownst to them, their cosy little home has an uninvited guest; the deranged previous owner, Alden (Steven Weber – The Shining, Desperation), has returned. Living in the walls and obsessively watching the new owners, as the last vestiges of his sanity disappear, his true intentions become horrifyingly clear.

That’s a crazy long synopsis. Hopefully you made it through that thing in one piece. If you’re curious to see the trailer, it’s currently only available at the official website. I’m not sure why that is, but I’m sure they have their reasons. Otherwise, take a gander at the new poster below.
