Crawlspace is a horror movie from 1986 starring Klaus Kinski as Karl Gunther, a delusional and sadistic landlord who rents apartments to young women in his building, only to torture and kill them in his secret underground lair. The movie opens with a young woman named Lori (Talia Balsam) moving into the building to start her new job as a fashion designer. She quickly realizes that something is off about her landlord, Karl, who constantly spies on her through hidden cameras installed in her apartment.

As the movie progresses, Lori discovers that she's not the only tenant in the building and that Karl has a long history of torturing and murdering his previous tenants. She tries desperately to escape Karl's clutches, but the building is rigged with traps and surveillance cameras, making it nearly impossible for her to leave.

Meanwhile, a journalist named Martha (Barbara Whinnery) becomes suspicious of Karl's behavior and begins investigating his past. She learns that Karl used to be a doctor, but was fired for performing unethical medical experiments on his patients. This revelation leads Martha down a dark path as she uncovers Karl's twisted past and his plans for the future.

The tension in Crawlspace builds steadily throughout the movie, as Lori and Martha both struggle to survive and uncover the truth about Karl's dark past. Klaus Kinski delivers a chilling performance as Karl, a man who is completely unhinged and believes that he is doing God's work by killing young women.

The movie is shot primarily in a single location, which adds to the claustrophobic feel of the film. The building itself is creepy and dilapidated, with graffiti and peeling wallpaper covering the walls. The sound design is also excellent, with ominous music and sound effects adding to the overall sense of dread.

Overall, Crawlspace is a tense and disturbing horror movie that will leave you on the edge of your seat. The performances by Klaus Kinski, Talia Balsam, and Barbara Whinnery are all top-notch, and the plot is both thrilling and unsettling. If you're a fan of horror movies from the 80s, then Crawlspace is definitely worth watching.

Crawlspace is a 2012 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 23 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3.
