Surprisingly Good!
17 February 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this on the UK edition of Eight Legged Freaks. This is the directors short film that gave the inspiration for the latter mentioned film.

Premise: Young woman moves into old house in the middle of the outback. As she goes round her normal jobs, she is set upon by some larger than life (hence the title) arachnids!

This film lasts about 13minutes, and included horror, suspense, comedy and much more! For a low budget film, the effects were brilliant. Its worth buying Eight Legged freaks just to see this!
