Terrific short! Much better than its big-budgeted brother.
`Larger than Life' comes as an extra feature on the `Eight Legged Freaks'-DVD and was the inspiration and budget-raiser for it. This pleasantly surprising film only lasts 13 minutes and it's a clean, pure tribute to legendary monster films like Them! And Tarantula. When talking about atmosphere and tension, Larger Than Life totally beats the crap out of Eight Legged Freaks.The black and white shots, along with the cheap - yet very convincing - effects are pure 50's! A few drops of toxic waste cause some spiders to mutate into gigantic killing machines and they go on terrorizing a young woman in her newly bought house. That's it.and that's all it has to be! Highly recommended.do watch it when you buy the Eight Legged Freaks DVD. It's not that time-absorbing.
