Yesterday, the first trailer for the upcoming thriller Crawl debuted, and, well, you can bet your sweet chicken tendies tossed in buffalo sauce I’m going to see this movie.

Directed by Alexandre Aja, the plot is a familiar one for those of us that live in Florida; a Category 5 hurricane is bearing down on your house, which you didn’t evacuate, and not only are you out of beer but a massive murder log is stalking your family. Every. Single. Time. 

Though the film is supposed to take place in South Florida and centers on at least one man-eating alligator on a killing spree, it appears to be just as campy and dumb as Lake Placid, which is absolutely fine.

Think Sharknado, but with a hurricane and some chonky gators. We need this right now.
