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 mayor sees all the people running towards the mall, he says the line: "If you build it, they will come!". It's inspired by the line : "If you build it, he will come." from Field of Dreams (1989) starring Kevin Costner. See more »
In the mall, the Sheriff closes a roller grate but the spiders reach through and catch him. He operates a chainsaw to chop off the legs holding him, and in the process gets showered in the face with green spider goo. This shown in close up, but in the following scenes, his face is clean and dry. 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.
