A large spider from the jungles of South America is accidently transported in a crate with a dead body to America where it mates with a local spider. Soon after, the residents of a small California town disappear as the result of spider bites from the deadly spider offspring. It's up to a couple of doctors with the help of an insect exterminator to annihilate these eight legged freaks before they take over the entire town. Written by

After the photographer has been bitten by a spider, he lies down on his bunk and dies. He is lying on his left-hand side, dead, when a little blood dribbles out of the left corner of his mouth and runs down an inch or more onto his left cheek. When he is shown in his coffin a few moments later, he still has blood in the left corner of his mouth, but the bloodstain is much smaller and, instead of running across his cheek, it is pointing down - towards his chin.

I did not start watching "Arachnophobia" expecting to like it. I was surprised to find that it was really quite enjoyable and kept your attention. It sounds like just another stupid take off of "The Birds (1963)" and something not really worth your time.
I think what made this movie work was that it had lots of humor and the spiders did not seem too unbelievable. It had lots of shadows from the spiders on the walls and behind the curtains which has an eerie effect on the audience.
I would recommend renting this movie. Watch it with an open mind and try not to think, "This is stupid."
