Arachnophobia

"Good"

Arachnophobia Review


Spiders, courtesy of executive producer Steven Spielberg, who shows off some of his least interesting special effects here (i.e. giant spider) as deadly super-spiders invade a tiny California town. It's Jeff Daniels, who suffers from the titular disorder, and funnyman John Goodman, as the local extremist exterminator, to the rescue! Plenty of laughs, but the action scenes don't really generate much in the way of scares. Good enough for Sunday afternoon, though. Later aped (very badly) in Eight Legged Freaks.
