‘Something terrible has been unleashed’
They Crawl Beneath is a 2022 sci-fi horror film about a young cop trapped under a car after an earthquake has unleashed a fearsome creature.

Directed by Dale Fabrigar (Reed’s Point; 100 Yards; D-Railed) from a screenplay written by Tricia Aurand. Produced by Suzanne DeLaurentiis, Kevin Goetz, Neil Goetz and Stephen Hornyak.

The movie stars Michael Paré (The Vampire and the Vigilante; Triassic Hunt; Painkiller; Bad Moon), Joseph Almani (Reed’s Point), Arthur Roberts, Merrick McCartha, Karlee Eldridge, Elena Sahagun and Natalia Bilbao.

While young cop Danny (Joseph Almani) is working on his Uncle Bill’s classic vintage car on a secluded ranch when a major earthquake hits.


Uncle Bill (Michael Paré) is crushed while Danny becomes trapped under the car, creating a claustrophobic nightmare. The situation intensifies alarmingly when something horrifying emerges out of the cracks in the ground that leaves Danny fighting for his life…


They Crawl Beneath will be released in North America on digital, Blu-ray (50% off at and DVD on October 4, 2022, by Well Go USA. Commenting, Doris Pfardrescher, President and CEO of Well Go USA, said: “This weaving of creature feature horror with a disaster-thriller backdrop undoubtedly positions They Crawl Beneath as an engaging, nail-biting entry to the horror genre.”

” …the chemistry between Almani and Paré is fantastic, and the former goes from lovelorn sap to underdog hero with ease and generates plenty of audience sympathy […] They Crawl Beneath is an emotional, character-driven call back to the environmentally conscious fright flicks of the sinister ’70s and really shouldn’t be missed by fans of the same!” Horror Fuel

“The creature effects are all (or seem to be) practical, with slimy hand puppets and animatronics, and there are a few solid moments that I’ll remember for quite some time. Co-star Michael Pare gives the movie some legitimacy in a strong supporting role (much of which he’s required to play dead), and with a scaled-back cast the movie has an intimacy to it that works.” The Movie Elite

“Tense and full of some interesting POV shots, this creature feature doesn’t disappoint, especially when the fissures release what they’ve kept hidden for far too long. Low in budget but high in drama, They Crawl Beneath is loaded with some cool creature feature effects, which ultimately make this journey with a disaster-thriller as its backdrop pretty damn fun.” Reel Reviews
