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.

Jeff Daniels, the Doctor, and John Goodman, the Pest Control Fanatic, find themselves in the middle of a huge spider problem in Canaima, A small country town in CA. An Expedition to South America, Venezuela, turns to tragedy as a man on the team looking for rare specimens is bitten by a poisonous spider. The spider "hitches" a ride back in the coffin and when they make it back to his hometown, the spider sets out to be free and finds his new home in the new town doctor's country barn. Things get entangled from there as some of the established townsfolk fall victim to the new invader and his many offspring.
This is a fun movie, a "thrillomedy" as Frank Marshall says. I recommend it for everyone, but probably not for real young viewers.
For this entry into the genre, this movie was predated by the 1970s "Kingdom of the Spiders" with William Shatner.
incredibly brilliant Directing from Frank marshall who adds lots of suspense & terror
when the spiders are shown on screen along with Trevor Jones music score very creepy & Haunting
i had to fast forward/skip certain scenes actually
this is the 2nd reissue of Arachnophobia which happens to be blu-ray reissue
the film has not been given a proper widescreen ratio since it's very old DVD release which was only a 1:33:1 fullscreen release
plus the picture quality was terrible and the sound was no better either
the films Distributor Buena vista finally release this creepy horror/thriller on blu-ray with an all new remastered HD transfer
and i tell you Buena vista made the effort for the picture quality for sure
the new High definition transfer looks amazingly sharp & clear in 1:85:1 widescreen, not much Dirt & Grain hardly any
the first time this film has been in it's correct screen ratio since it's first DVD release
Massive big improvement over the old dvd version anyday
plus the sound quality has been remixed & boosted aswell to a new 5.1 Master audio mix
an excellent 5.Read more ›
