The residents of a rural mining town discover that an unfortunate chemical spill has caused hundreds of little spiders to mutate overnight to the size of SUVs. It's then up to mining engineer Chris McCormack and Sheriff Sam Parker to mobilize an eclectic group of townspeople, including the Sheriff's young son, Mike, her daughter, Ashley, and paranoid radio announcer Harlan, into battle against the bloodthirsty eight-legged beasts.Written by

When the mayor sees all the people running towards the mall, he says the line: "If you build it, they will come!". It's inspired by the line : "If you build it, he will come." from Field of Dreams (1989) starring Kevin Costner. See more »
When the line goes dead while Deputy Pete is on the phone with the Sheriff, he has the receiver in his left hand, but when he goes to tap on the phone base, there are clearly two hands holding on to the base. When the shot goes back to his face, he is still holding the receiver with his left hand. See more »
I watched this movie on DVD based soley on the reviews that said it was funny and a return to the B-movie genre. It was that and more. I don't usually enjoy David Arquette but he was loveable in this movie. This movie made me both laugh and jump. It knew how to poke fun at itself without seeming pathetic. If you're looking for a campy movie with things jumping out at you this is a good pick.
