Animals continue attacking at the multiplex. “Crawl” is currently chomping down on the box office, and “47 Meters Down: Uncaged” is out in August. "Crawl," directed by Alexandre Aja, has been surprisingly well received for a creature feature with an impressive 86 percent freshness score on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s the latest in the sometimes scary, sometimes silly “when animals attack” genre, where birds, bees, bears, sharks, snakes, spiders and so much more wreak havoc.
