      Naila Scargill Exquisite Terror There's very little to recommend this film; any comedy present is lacklustre, while the predictability is too pronounced. Feb 28, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Bad TV Movies ran out of things to fuse sharks with. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Arachnoquake may be the best SyFy original film. It's got comedy. Action. Little drama. It's a fun film in the form of an adventure. The plot is absolute crap. The spiders are boring and idiotic but you do randomly have Tracey Gold from Growing Pains and and other child actor, Edward Furlong from many films in the early '90s such as Terminator 2 and Pet Semetary 2. And they are even married, and seeing them with two teenager kids is just weird but helps add to the need to finish the movie, because it's so random and awkward and you want to see how it turns out. The last third of the film is just really boring and then the last 15 minutes are cool and fairly entertaining, including the ending. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Syfy movie, actually not so bad, quite entertaining! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Based on a true story of course, this movie tells the tale of a breed of monstrous spiders that roam beneath the earths surface, only to be freed when a series of tremors allows them the freedom to run riot. Naturally the size of these creatures makes them highly unrealistic with obvious computer generated graphics that makes it all very plasticky. On the upside, this doesn't take itself too seriously, it has a cast full of geeky playboys and tarts that who look like they haven't ever been to acting school, and they're only use is to wear tight tops that enhance their assets. For such a film, it has quite a lengthy running time, yet the cheesy amusement didn't make me too bored, although I'm not going to rave great things about it either. I think the fact that spiders have an eerie presence no matter how badly they're portrayed, creates an unsettling appeal to this movie and some of the gore imposed when spiders hatched from beneath human skin was still gruesome to watch. Nowhere near the quality of arachnophobia but then again, the title alone suggests that was always going to be the case. Doubt this will be repeated, but always good to watch a poor film like this, as it allows one to appreciate classic blockbusters all the more! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member An earthquake caused by Fracking unleashes killer spiders on an unsuspecting and largely stupid folk of New Orleans. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member AAAAAAAAAAAAFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLLL Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
