A Crack in the Floor (2001) Review:
For a low-budget film, A Crack in the Floor is definitely a great watch if you’re in for a super cheesy slasher flick. There’s nothing intelligent about it, it’s written in a very predictable way but it’s scripted by someone who obviously gets horror movies. Film shots of the killer’s eye beneath the floor boards is a fantastic reoccurring shot with a creepy music theme that is pretty chilling. The actor and premise of the character who plays the killer, is pretty much a miss though, since he’s awfully generic on screen. Keep in mind there is little money that went into this film so the filmmaking is a little grainy and rough.
However, the cast for A Crack in the Floor is incredible, snagging the likes of old-time classic actors such as Gary Busey, Rance Howard, Bo Hopkins, is an amazing trio for a horror film. Mario Lopez and Daisy McCrackin were solid additions as the leads of the film too and although a couple supporting cast members were annoying, it wasn’t disastrous. The shining aspect of this film is clearly the comedic dialogue, whoever wrote the lines was well equipped in the comedy field too. Undoubtedly, the film is never going to be universally liked because of its low budget but the fact that A Crack in the Floor doesn’t have a cult following by horror fans is pretty shocking. A Crack in the Floor should definitely be searched out if you’re a fan of horrible but entertaining low budget horror films.
