I personally wouldn't go as far as to call it a great movie, the special effects are wildly inconsistent, sometimes decent but also sometimes very superficial and the film, despite the fact it has the feel of a parody, can get very derivative and predictable at times and the editing could have been a little sharper, at times there was too much of a 60s-70s TV movie feel to it. However, the costume and set design were reasonably good, I enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek dialogue with its embracing of the genre clichés and the spiders do have a certain menace to them. There is also a nice mix of fun and scary moments, including the wonderfully chaotic ending, the characters are admittedly clichéd but I have seen and heard far worse written characters before in far worse movies that had no excuse to be as bad as they are and the young cast are very likable. Overall, not great but could have been far worse. 7/10 Bethany Cox
