here's one for rotten tomatoes or oh, the humanity...
25 March 2001 | by tripperMSee all my reviews

i popped this in without really knowing what i was getting into. well, i'm glad i had no expectations whatsoever. this is a truly awful film. i loved it! yes, i'm one of those freaks that like B films and classic 50's sci-fi flicks, and with spiders i got both. 10 years from now, this'll be at a midnight showing with tarantula. laced with nominal acting, kitchy lines, and "killer tomato" f/x, this little ditty was a laugh a minute. i just hope that the makers of this wonderful schlock were in on the joke.
