|Plot Summary of Crawl|
|"County police make a horrifying discovery in a small West Texas town. The entire town has been covered by a dome made of spider silk. Inside the town, the residents have been captured by humongous spiders with an eerie, unsettlingly high level of intelligence. Those who have escaped must fight to stay alive until help can reach them. Outside the dome, first the state police, then the military attempts to stop the spiders. But, the spiders have a plan and they have the means to break out of the dome and attack. Can mankind find a way to stop them before all of Texas becomes one big spider web?"
Geordi Schmidt, Resident Scholar
