Was Rooting For The Creepy Spiders To Bite The Main Characters
If spiders give you the creeps, stay away from this film. You will be uncomfortable watching it, to say the least! I'm so-so on the creatures but this gave me some creepy moments, too. As one person said, "It makes your skin crawl."
The spiders didn't bother me as much as most of the characters in this film. They were annoying to me, especially Jeff Daniels as "Dr. Ross Jennings." This guy blasphemes about as many times as the spiders appear.
The only fun person in the film is John Goodman, who plays the exterminator, "Delbert McClintock." Too bad "Delbert" didn't exterminate a few people while he was at it!
