Plot Summary

From the producers of the blockbuster films "Independence Day" and "Godzilla"! The residents of a rural mining town discover that an unfortunate chemical spill has caused hundreds of little spiders to mutate overnight to the size of SUVs! It's up to mining engineer Chris McCormack (David Arquette -- "See Spot Run," "3000 Miles to Graceland") and Sheriff Sam Parker (Kari Wuhrer -- TV's "General Hospital," TV's "Sliders") to mobilize an eclectic group of townspeople into battle against the bloodthirsty eight-legged beasts. With state-of-the-art visual effects, "Eight Legged Freaks" updates such inspired genre classics as "Them!" and "Black Scorpion" into a terrifyingly fun experience. Also Starring Golden Globe-nominee Scarlett Johansson ("Match Point," "In Good Company") and Doug E. Doug ("Shark Tale," "Cool Runnings").

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Like many of the worst pop-referential parodies of the post-Scream era, this one stalls on laughs once the big joke has been established. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: Originality ain't on the menu, but there's never a dull moment in the giant spider invasion comic chiller. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Despite nifty F/X, first-time director Ellory Elkayem's staging is altogether devoid of variation. – Dennis Lim, Village Voice, Jul 24, 2002

Fresh: As green-guts monster movies go, it's a beaut. – Reilly Capps, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010
