As a homage thing, it barely passes the test. As a good movie, it severely flunks.
15 August 2010 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

I like giant monster movies, hence I like giant spiders. So I guess I just had to see this one sooner or later. "Arachnia" is basically a total cheese-fest, bad to the bone. The nice touch was that it is sort of an homage to 50's & 60's giant monster/insect movies. So don't expect one original aspect here, story- or otherwise. The acting in general was, as to be expected, too bad for words. The effects aren't good either, actually, but they still are a lot of fun. Because the film-makers mostly used stop-motion (in the year 2003!, mind you) to bring the spiders to live. Needless to say, it's not on par with Ray Harryhausen's work. All-in-all: Kind of fun in a very bad way.
