Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Crawlspace (1986)

Directed by:
David Schmoeller

A former Nazi war criminal (Klaus Kinski) crawls around his apartment building air shafts spying on women before killing them. Fairly well-photographed, but silly and borderline campy, effort filmed in Italy for Charles Band's Empire Pictures at least has some visual style and a dedicated wacko performance from Klaus. Pino Donaggio did the score. Director Schmoeller talks about what a pain in the ass Kinski was to work with in the documentary short PLEASE KILL MR. KINSKI (which he also directed). More review coming soon.
