Storyline

An airplane carring coffee beans from South America has some unpleasant stowaways: a hoard of tarantulas which overcome the pilots as the airplane is flying over an orange-producing town in California. The airplane crashes, and the unlucky inhabitants of the town release the poisonous spiders into their midst. Once the town's officials discover that the tarantulas are responsible for several deaths, the tarantulas have already descended upon the town's only orange-processing factory. The town's citizens risk their lives to remove the tarantulas from the factory while the poisonous pests are rendered motionless by the transmitted sound of buzzing bees. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

the spiders were the best actors
4 August 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this movie isn't' total crap,but it's not great either.but you cant really expect much from these types of movies.there's almost no suspense and not very much excitement in this movie.it just sort of plods along to the end.it's entertaining,if nothing else.i mean,you get some horrid dialogue,sometimes delivered just as horridly.the acting isn't great,and some of the characters are as dumb as could be.i guess it's sort of in the category of so bad it's good.i thought the spiders were pretty good actors,at least.i've watched quite a few of these movies and this one is no better or worse than any other one of this type.i find this type of movie a good way to waste 90 minutes or so.besides,none of these movies come close to being the worst movie i have seen,so that's something.
