Editorial Reviews

Get caught in a web of laughs, thrills and chills with ARACHNOPHOBIA from legendary Executive Producer Steven Spielberg -- now available for the first time on Blu-ray, featuring an all-new digital restoration with enhanced picture and sound. Jeff Daniels and John Goodman star in this creepy comedy, crawling with the perfect mix of fun and fright. Everyone is afraid of something, but when Dr. Ross Jennings (Daniels) moves his family to a quiet place in the country, the one thing that bugs him most is terrifying everyone in town. For this unlikely hero, overcoming a childhood fear of spiders might just save the day. Enjoy the hair-raising entertainment of ARACHNOPHOBIA like never before on Blu-ray!

Customer Reviews

This movie is one of the best I've ever seen, and me being a movie-junkie.
"amandamacc"
A very smart, literate script cleverly layered the tension as we, the audience, learn along with the characters.

"Arachnophobia" is a clever comedy/thriller sure to scare the spider-phobes out there. Jeff Daniels and Harley Jane Kozak star as Dr. Ross and Molly Jennings, a young couple who have moved to the country to start his medical practice. Little do they know that a huge, deadly spider has arrived from South America and is reproducing - a lot! One by one, town residents start dropping like flies, until Ross figures out they were all bitten by spiders. This brings back memories of a childhood trauma that left him with a paralyzing fear of spiders - and the spider's nest is right in Ross' barn.

There are many creepy scenes of menacing spiders that will have you looking around to make sure none are near you. They must have used some robotic spiders, but they all looked very real to me. The idyllic rural setting contrasts nicely with the intensely scary stalking spiders. Daniels is perfect as the dedicated doctor, and John Goodman has a small but funny part as an exterminator. The movie may be too scary for very young children, but others will giggle a little and gasp a lot.

I thought that archnophobia was a great movie. It was Thrilling and funny, and I recomend it to anyone who likes a good thriller. I think that the guy who gave it one star needs to get a life and stop taking things to seriously. He's a little too attached to spiders if you know what I mean.

Format: DVD
This often amusing, sometimes suspenseful film about killer spiders starts out in the dense jungles of Venezuela, with bug-O-maniac Julian Sands, as he tracks down a new species of lethal as well as big and hairy arachnid. One of these hairy creatures finds its way to sweet suburbia in California, using a wooden coffin as transport, and starts mating with the local spider population, causing havoc and rigor mortis.

City transplant Jeff Daniels, a doctor with severe arachnophobia, who wants the quiet country life as long as he doesn't have to see a spider, finds himself the center of controversy because of the deaths, and his newly bought house infested with the critters. Daniels, one of Hollywood's more underrated actors, gives a terrific performance as Dr. Jennings, as he tries some hands-on therapy for his phobia.

John Goodman is hilarious as the town exterminator, who if he can't kill 'em with insecticide, uses his big boots, and others in the fine cast are Harley Jane Kozak as Molly Jennings, Henry Jones as old Dr. Metcalf, and Stuart Pankin as stubborn Sheriff Parsons. This was the feature film directorial debut for Frank Marshall, who has been known mostly as a producer, mainly for Stephen Spielberg's films. A good score by Trevor Jones (with songs like Jimmy Buffett's "Don't Bug Me") adds to the overall enjoyment of this fun creature feature, which takes us back to the days when the bugs were filmed in black and white.

Total running time is 103 minutes.

Pretty scary stuff. I had to turn it off the first time I ever saw it. I did end up finishing it and have enjoyed it ever since. Every time I see it I spend the rest of the night swatting phantom insects off my arms and every little thing that brushes my leg is enough to send me rocketing to the ceiling with a bloodcurdling scream. Jeff Daniels played a good role as the main character who was...this was the only part of the movie that I felt was a little too plotted...afraid of spiders.
Julian Sands was great as the rather lofty, condescending professor, Dr. Atherton. I was disappointed, however, to see that a man who was written into the plot as an expert of spiders would honestly walk right into the spiders' lair and be killed off so easily. Maybe I just didn't want his character to die since I'm a fan of Julian Sands, but I still maintain that Dr. Atherton would not have been that nieve about the nest.
Anyway, moving on...all in all, I love this movie and the climax keeps you on the edge of your seat. You might breathe maybe two breaths total during the basement scene, when Daniels' character is fighting the father spider.

This was a good movie. Creepy in the right way. Doesn't quite do to spiders what Jaws did with sharks, but worth the viewing.
On a side note, I can't believe the moron who complained about the killing of spiders in this movie. Pal, life must be pretty boring for you.

This is a perfect starter for Halloween, just enough scares and fun to get you in the mood. 'Arachnophobia' would have been an even better film if it was scarier and funnier. It all seems pretty "middle of the road" to me. It's an enjoyable film unless you can't handle watching spiders, but it seems a bit uneven in tone. The DVD transfer is OK, but could be improved also. All in all, it's a good family horror movie, nothing too intense, but a lot of fun.

Format: VHS Tape
Julian Sands, Jeff Daniels, and John Goodman star in this thrilling and sometimes funny film about a small town overrun by mutant spiders. The film begins as Dr. James Atherton (Sands) and his crew are in the forests of Venezuela searching for insects. What they find is far beyond what they expected. It seems that they have discovered a mutant strain of spider with a very powerful venom. Unfortunately for Atherton's photographer Jerry Manley, played by Mark L. Taylor, the spider bites and kills him. The spider also manages to catch a ride back to the States in Manley's coffin. It is here that the mutant spider mates with a regular spider, and the "fun" begins.
Meanwhile, Dr. Ross Jennings (Jeff Daniels) and his wife Molly (Harley Jane Kozak) have moved from San Francisco. Ross is about to take over as the town doctor from Dr. Sam Metcalf, but Dr. Metcalf decides against retiring at the last second, leaving Ross with no patients and a flock of mutant spiders multiplying in his barn. Soon, several townspeople, including Dr, Metcalf, are found dead, having suffered spider bites. After confirming his diagnosis of the spider bites, Dr. Ross summons the help of Dr. Atherton of ridding the town of the spiders, but will they be able to succeed before its too late?
This is a fun movie to watch. The acting, especially by John Goodman as exterminator Delbert McClintock, is excellent, and the plot, while suspenseful at times, does a good job of blending in some humor as well (Goodman's "That's right, I'm bad" line after squishing an unsuspecting spider is a good example). I highly recommend this movie. Watch and get a good scare and laugh at the same time.
