The Crawlers

A.K.A. The Creepers
United States - 1992
Director - Martin Newlin (Joe D'Amato)
Columbia Tristar Home Video, 1993, VHS
Run Time - 1 hour, 34 minutes

Nice airbrushed cover guys. The Crawlers is ostensibly a "sequel" or spiritual continuation of the Troll II ethos, but it's missing something. The supernatural lunacy that it's predecessor possessed is gone, and in it's place a tale of toxic waste. No matter how topical you get, there is no substitute for sheer nonsense.
