But I wasn't disappointed because it was a bad movie, which it was. I was expecting a lot worse, and I didn't get it. I enjoy watching movies that are so pathetic that you can only laugh at them. I watched this movie because the girl from Troll 2 is in it, although she has like one line (and no dance moves - shame).
The story is recycled garbage (secret scientific experiments, regular creature gets mutated, the head scientist wants them 'captured' but they really just need to die, etc). The acting is atrocious, however the look of fright on most of the characters was believable. Sadly, the spiders did look pretty 'gnarly' for poorly done CGI, and for that level of adequacy alone I am disappointed. There are scares and tension, which is well done considering the entire movie took place during the day. Ever notice that things are scarier at night? The props were pretty good, like the webs and the dead carcasses and the spider in the box.
In conclusion: it didn't completely fail, so I'm disappointed. I give it 7 stars, and that in my books is an insult. If you want to please me and get my coveted one-star rating, aim a lot lower next time.
