Five Dolla Holla: Eight Legged Freaks


A variety of horrible poisonous spiders get exposed to a noxious chemical that causes them to grow to monumental proportions.

If the movie Arachnophobia gave you nightmares, it's probably a really bad idea to see Eight Legged Freaks...this is something I should have know, and kinda did, but ignored. Now I hate spiders more that ever. If I even see a good picture of one, I scream like a little bitch. None the less, this movie was really fun to watch. The scariest part of the movie is that the special effects are really good and the spiders look pretty real...I can take the bloodiest, goriest film but it's during a horror comedy about giant spiders that I have to cover my eyes! The acting was pretty good, but no one's really paying attention; the spiders are the stars here. The dialog was hilarious and the film is filled with odes to some of the great classic horror films (Aliens, Dawn of the Dead, even Friday the 13th! the guy in a hockey mask with a chainsaw battling the spiders was fucking awesome!). As long as your not terrified of spiders, this is the Shawn of the Dead of Monster films. If you are, this will be the most frightening film you have ever seen!

I absolutely love this movie. It is so much fun to watch, and it feels like they just had a really fun time making it. The DVD commentary is just as hilarious as the rest of the movie! Glad you enjoyed it Rhonny.

I watched this when it first came out on video and absolutely hated it. Though, to be honest, that may be attributed to my irrational and seething hatred of David Arquette--he just has a face I want to smash with a skillet.

I'll have to give this a second chance sometime.

men how dare to do a review about this movie, when I saw the first and only time, I end with a terrible humor and very dissapointed, actually I ask in the video club for a repayment.
