A lot of the film is satirical Doug E Doug's conspiracy guy and the cgi is so obvious and over the top that, while it might be aggravating in a movie that took itself more seriously, you can't help but admire and respect the results. That really is the strength of the movie -- it doesn't take itself as seriously as a lot of its critics did. A truck transporting waste crashes and dropping an unfortunate chemical spill in a river. I had no level of expectation for it and really no desire to watch it in the first place. A spoof slash tribute, updated with the latest and most expensive computer techniques. The flick is lavishly produced by Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin.
If you're looking for a campy movie with things jumpingout at you this is a good pick. Nonetheless, it's fun and a nice change from all those irrelevant and dull teen-slashers. I went into the theaterexpecting, at the bare minimum, a film with a rating of. The script is mostly in tongue-in-cheek and doesn't go into sort of mumbo-jumbo, but there are some self-knowing winks about too. It has some corny humor, which I grinned at a few times or so.
In fact, that's all Eight Legged Freaks represents! That's what I lookfor - was I entertained or was I checking my watch every 15-20 minutes. Chris is the town hero who leads the brigade to stop the creeping crawlers, who are by the way mutated to large size when they ingest a certain amount of nuclear wastes.

I'm not a spider guy so I wasn't really interested in the first place. The likes of Tarantula and Them! Eight Legged Freaks is unashamedly homaging B movie creature features from the 1950s. Some viewers will be turned off by the black humor of the piece--particularly as it references the pets that go missing early on in the film.
Present in Eight Legged Freaks as well: two generations of stunningly beautiful actresses. But he didn't plan on the town soon being overrun by giant spiders! There's the hero, an average Joe returnee named Chris McCormick David Arquette , returning home after years of absence. A good special effect is one we don't notice and these spiders arecompletely convincing. I mean how else are we to get 20 foot jumping spiders chowing down on some annoying teenager? There's nothing overly clever about it, but it delivers the excitement and occasion laugh when needed. The eclectic bunch takes refuge at the Prosperity Mall and the little town is devastated by the spiders attack. This movie is hysterically funny and scary at the same time! Though, one thing against the creative effects was that it was probably, terribly overused. It was truly funny with some great sight gags and lines.
Yeah, that was a pretty badpun. The difference is the much- better special-effects but some low-grade attitudes and some profanity. It was that and more. It deserves at least a 7. One jumping spider jumps up and hits a window and slides down groaning all of the way! The performances are all played with a straight-face, which definitely works in its favour and the combine cast turn in fine performances yep, even David Arquette!

Can the odd ball inhabitants of this Arizona town escape with their lives? I shamelessly admit I had a great time while watching Eight Legged Freaks. I tend to be one of those and so have never much enjoyed horror films featuring giant or menacing spiders.
This film delivered everything I go to the movies for. Thismoviemade me both laugh and jump. You should already be warned? It's rare that I would ever say that about any movie.

Chemical waste from the container seep into the local lake and its detrimental effect on the ecological system. Arriving in town is a old resident, Chris McCormack who has return home after 10 years to look for the supposed gold that his deceased father claim was in their mine and also hopefully to clear up a certain matter with the lady he secretly loves; Samantha Parker, the town's sheriff.
Thevisuals are incredible from the bright cartoonish color pallette given tothe locations to the spiders themselves - easily some of most realisticsetof special effects I've seen in a while.
