Crawlspace (also known as The Attic and Hideaway) is a 2013 horror movie and the directorial debut of Josh Stolberg.[1] The film was released on January 4, 2013, and was optioned by Hulu for exclusive VOD distribution starting June 5, 2014.[2] Crawlspace focuses on a family that is terrorized by the former occupant of their new home.


Tim (Jonathan Silverman) and Susan (Lori Loughlin) Gates are eager to move into their new house with their sons Shane (Sterling Beaumon) and Taylor (Xander Stolberg) and their daughter Kayla (Raleigh Holmes), despite the house's dark history of drowned children and foreclosure. They're unaware that the house's previous owner, Aldon Webber (Steven Weber) has returned and is living in the attic and monitors the family through the air duct vents. Aldon will stop at nothing to take possession of the children and the home.



Reviewers compared Crawlspace to the 1989 Gary Busey film Hider in the House,[3] and Shock Till You Drop commented that while Crawlspace was overly familiar, "at the end of the day, it pays respect to the notion that even the safest place in our world may still have secrets."[4] Starburst gave it seven out of ten stars and praised the film for the different ways that Weber's character murdered his victims.[5]
