Trivia

As one of many inside jokes, producers Shaked Berenson and 'Patrick Ewald' (qav) doubled for lead actors Greg Grunberg and Lombardo Boyar. Three of these shots ended up in the final cut. See more »

Goofs

Greg Grunberg's character refers to the spider several times as "poisonous". The correct term is "venomous". Being an exterminator, he would know the difference. See more »

An Entertaining Action Black Comedy
26 October 2014 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

In the same mold as Arachnophobia (1990) and Tremors (1990), this sci fi monster action mystery thriller has blacker scenes if not tone than those movies. While not a classic and the special effects not superb, the pacing and the comedic action is pretty decent, even the destruction scenes are adequate for this parody on the monster movie. Greg Grunberg who made his small screen mark on Heroes (2006-2010) stars. Better than expected, the biggest weakness are its death scenes which don't seem consistent with the tone of the movie breaking the parody theme of the movie. The buddy scenes however are some of the strongest, most solid parts of the movie with their humor and fun play and smart witty dialogue.
