After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents.
The residents of a rural mining town discover that an unfortunate chemical spill has caused hundreds of little spiders to mutate overnight to the size of SUVs. It's then up to mining engineer Chris McCormack and Sheriff Sam Parker to mobilize an eclectic group of townspeople, including the Sheriff's young son, Mike, her daughter, Ashley, and paranoid radio announcer Harlan, into battle against the bloodthirsty eight-legged beasts.

When the town's people have fled into the mall, the mayor, Wade, asks the goofy sheriff's assistant Pete what the hell just attacked him. Pete answers: "A spider, man", swallowing the syllable 'a', making it an obvious reference to Spider-Man, Marvel's comic book superhero. See more »
In the ostrich scene, the mayor comes out of the house with a small flashlight, but in the wide shot he's got a huge Maglite-type flashlight. See more »
Dialogue funny, CGI great, fun time - It's Squashin' Time
The dialogue was great. Rick Overton as the deputy is truly a modern day Barney Fife. The spiders steal the show. Though the plot does drag a bit in a few places the film generally moves quickly and has you jumping in your seats as spiders big and small pop out of everywhere. The film appears to be done in the same style as "Tremors" and definitely captures the light heartedness of that film. Good Entertainment. Enjoy the popcorn.
