A boy is afflicted by obsessive-compulsive disorder in a serious way. Dark and hauntingly funny, Crawley was co-directed by Lisa Hammer and Ben Edlund (The Tick).
"A disturbing look at OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Crawley succeeds in taking viewers into
the mind of someone afflicted a little more seriously than Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets.
Shot in B&W Super-8 and edited on video, the stark visuals aid in creating a horrific mood. At first I
thought the title was in reference to Aleister Crowley (Magick in Theory and Practice), but rather,
it is descriptive of the main character's mode of ambulation: skittering along, afraid to step on any
cracks as he thinks his doing so once broke his mother's back. Wonderfully off-beat."
-Cashiers du Cinemart
"Crawley is a dark comedy which draws heavily on the childhood fears of co-writers Ben Edlund and Eric
Hammer- fears ranging from killer bees to the inevitability of their parents' spontaneaous combustion."
-Film Threat Magazine
"...A hilarious sketch in which a deranged mad-man named Crawley tries to harmonize forces of strange
attraction occurring between food items on his table."
