David Schmoeller garnered interest with 1979's TOURIST TRAP, a concept which has certainly been used to death in modern times. With CRAWLSPACE it looks as though he was trying to blend PEEPING TOM with Nazi medical films which no doubt is why he brough Klaus Kinski on board. Kinski is about the only thing of interest here though even he appears to be going through the motions as the wing nut psycho. Interesting earlier work from Talia Balsam of recent MAD MEN fame and marks the big screen debut of musical talent Tane McClure but other than Kinski there isn't much in this crawlspace.
