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").

Critics Consensus: This homage to the B-movies of the '50s has a promising first half, but runs out of ideas in the second.
