Where does this film get placed in spider film history? One thinks it will end up a footnote or perhaps forgotten altogether (and the world would not suffer a loss from that).
Many great spider films exist, including "Arachnophobia"... heck, even "Big-Butt Spider" probably deserves some sort of recognition. This one, though? Even by cheesy science fiction standards, it is little more than a distraction. Hardly worth even attempting line here.
