Horror spiders film with an incredible makeup and formidable special effects, 19 April 2004
Author: ma-cortes

Monster film plenty of thrills , chills , spectacular scenes , frenetic action and overwhelming spider attacks . It's an average spooky terror/monster movie . It is a blending of the monster movies of the 50s such as 'Tarantula' and modern American production plenty of C.G.I. The thrilling screenplay is a bit yawn-inspiring but nifty special effects will keep you from dozing off , with nice creatures designers, created by means of Animatronics and computer visual effects .

The actors are unknown , Parrilla ,Greene and others must be one of their first films . The FX are extraordinaries , the giant spiders are breathtaking, they have been made by means of computer generator visual effects and Animatronics. The technicians set up the creatures effects supervision were the prestigious Robert Kurtzman , Greg Nicotero and Howard Berger and they made it pretty well . Although nothing which haven't been seen before, this is not the picture to watch if you are scared of spiders , however the movie is quite entertaining . Utterly arachnophobia people must flee this film.

The production is quite good , it was realized by Nu Image now called Milennium , a production company formed by brothers Danny Lerner , Avi Lerner , and Boaz Davidson along with Trevor Short . The motion picture was professionally directed by Gary Jones with rather too much camera movement and there are also lots of low-angle shots of people hanging around waiting to get bitten by the carnivorous spider . Rating : Acceptable and passable.

Other movies about this Spider sub-genre are the followings : ¨Tarantula (1955)¨ by Jack Arnold with John Agar ; ¨Tarantula: the deadly cargo (1977)¨ with Claude Akins ; ¨Kingdom of spiders (77)¨ by John Budd Cardos with William Shatner , ¨Arachnophobia(1990)¨ by Frank Marshall with John Goodman ; ¨Arachnid¨ (2000) by Jack Sholder with Chris Potter , Jose Sancho , Neus Asensi and ¨Eight Legged Freaks¨ (2002) by Ellory Elkayem with Scarlett Johansson , Kari Wuhrer , and David Arquette
