Spiders creep most people out. Lots of spiders that grow to giant size creep out everyone (but me). This seems kind of like Hollywood's answer to a 'B' movie, with a big budget of course. The plot is so simple, you've seen the old toxic waste barrel fall off of many a truck and cause all types of mischief before. So nothing new in that area is shown. Still, the movie is fun and played for laughs throughout. There's no blood, nudity, or anything scary here really. The FX are all that money can buy. The spider attacks are more cartoon violence than anything else, but it was funny as hell to watch some of this stuff. The jumping spiders attacking the teens was a hoot as were the scenes of people being rolled up in cocoons. Some witty one-liners help things along as does the hot ass sheriff and her jailbait daughter, mmmm mmmm mmmm. David Arquette still seems like Dewey to me. The best thing here are the spiders of course. That little kid who's the smart- ass spider expert was just kinda weird to me, perhaps the scariest thing in the movie. 8 L. F. is good for a few laughs and to hear everyone in the vicinity get all yucky when they see the spiders. This isn't a classic as Giant Spider Invasion, but how could it be?
