Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Like countless other slasher-type films, the humans aren’t as easy to root for as the bloodthirsty antagonist(s) – especially considering that they’re perpetually unprepared, unaware, unobservant, and slow. Rated: 3/10 Aug 9, 2023 Full Review Anton Bitel VODzilla.co Arachnid is so dumbed-down that even its resident spider expert/expositor, Dr Henry Capri (Ravil Isyanov), has as his one academic credential a published book named "Arachnid fun facts" Mar 23, 2018 Full Review Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.com Fun monster trash.

Audience Member For its time, and in general, it's a good and watchable giant spider movie. Acting is pretty good, and the score and atmosphere is also great. Overall, a great watch. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member I personally thought that director, Jack Sholder did a good job at this film. Sholder is also known for the sequel to Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Back. Good spider film. Never got the point of the worm/centipede creature things Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty naff stuff,giant spider in the jungle. People doing stupid things to die. The effects are at least more practical than cgi Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The gore value in this giant spider horror is fine, but the story around it doesn't generate enough interest with some very dull characters on show. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member i met the director of this and told him i watched it, his response was "you didn't watch the whole thing did ya?" Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Despite my well documented love of awesome terrible movies this one completely failed to grab my attention despite any amount of monstrous creepy crawlies . Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
