A seriously unscary comic horror that's likeable as a piece of light entertainment, but don't expect any shocks or chills (unless you REALLY hate spiders...) John Goodman is OK in a cameo as a self-important exterminator, but as a whole it delivers little more than the occasional chuckle.

This movie literally scared the hell out of me. Of course I do have arachnophobia. Never in my life had I seen a spider actually jump from one surface to another but right after seeing this flick at the drive-in upon getting back home I noticed a spider on the wall and when I went to go kill it it jumped, from the wall to my shirt at least a foot away. Not many movies have given me nightmares but the first night after this happened I was grabbing the Raid.

Best scary film about spiders I've ever seen. It's actually quite thrilling at times.

For being an individual with the titular phobia, I found this film profoundly flat and pedestrian. You'd think that if Alfred Hitchcock was able to instill blind terror with the mere sight of a flock of disgruntled birds, then Marshall would be able to at least quietly unsettle with the image of a sodality of aesthetically displeasing arthropods invading a living room. But no! Perhaps if a little more time had been devoted to the creation of a more pronounced aura of menace, and a little less to the comedic stylings of John Goodman, than the film might have been a tad bit more effective.

I still wonder how they got all those spiders in the scenes.
