"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.

Arachnophobia is a thriller that will have you checking everywhere for spiders for months! Anyone who is even slightly creeped out by spiders will be on the edge of their seat.

The pace and tone is Hitchcock. Great acting, music, special effects, slam-bang ending.

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.

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.

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.

A genial, light-weight "horror" film. The movie is good looking, well performed, and well shot. The suspense is leavened with humor and the plot is routine. Really, a good intro-to-horror film for someone who wants to understand the genre without actually being scared, just a little tense with anticipation at times. John Goodman pushes the film toward the humorous side whenever he appears.
