When I first came to check this film out I did it quickly, skimmed over the names etc. and then just hit play. It wasn't till afterward that I did further investigation that I realized that the director for this film was Malik Bader, the crafty actor/director behind the making of one of the most clever & original films I've seen Street Thief(2006). Crush is, in terms of genre & plot, a completely different animal and Bader handled it masterfully. If you're thinking Crush is the average teen obsession film your wrong. The new girl in town Bess(Crystal Reed) develops an unhealthy fixation on popular star athlete Scott(Lucas Till). Only Scott's attention is towards his long time friend Jules(Sarah Bolger). As Bess becomes more & more drawn to Scott terribly things begin to happen around him. If you're thinking of this as familiar & predictable I can guarantee you will be dead wrong on that assumption. This film will pull the rug from beneath you with a turn of events you will not see coming. Everything here seems to be in order, the story, acting, soundtrack and camera-work. I was indeed glad I had made the choice to check this out, with no reviews & little votes it was a nice surprise. Recommend it highly -^-8/10-^-

In the case of many thrillers, the rating at IMDb is plain wrong. I like to have a quick look at any that score 5.0 or higher if only to check the first 10 minutes to see if anything hooks me. Most often I hit the delete key. Occasionally, I get stick around right to the end. Rarely, I find a hidden gem. CRUSH, is one of these gems. Here is a clever director that takes you on a wild ride. He doesn't lay it out for you in the introduction; it's not a simple game of 'who gets the axe next?' It's a game of 'who is the villain and who the hero? Who is the lover and who is the best friend?' It's a little cinematic technique known as suspense. Hitchcock it's not, but trust me on this one and fire up the popcorn.
CRUSH is slow-moving, virtually humorless, without a lot of serious tension or big turnabouts, and a bit hard to follow. A lot of people obviously like the twist at the end, but all I can say is that it didn't surprise me that much. Nevertheless, the ending IS far more effective and conclusive than many of them. CRUSH is also realistically filmed and acted and gives a convincing view of the darker aspects of adolescence, capturing its angst, jealousy, loneliness, and love hexagrams very well. The way the girls in the film all kind of look alike is initially confusing but really serves its purpose in the end. All things considered, CRUSH is like a fairly good Lifetime film on PCP.
