Goofs

When Valentine (Chris Potter) tells Mercer "Just help me get these people out of here and I'll come back with you" around 51 minutes in, Mercer (Alex Reid) opens her mouth to reply but only the voice of the doctor (José Sancho), who had just walked into their perspective, can be heard, making it sound like Mercer is talking with a man's voice as no audio whatsoever is heard coming from her mouth.

Not really bad, but not really good either.
18 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I was watching a cheesy horror flick (can't remember which one) at my grandparents house one day, and this movie happened to be showing right after it. I figured, 'What the hell? I'll give it a shot.' It didn't make my top ten list of cheesy horror flicks. I liked it. But I'm warning you right now, this one gets really gross. As in bugs crawling under your skin, literally, gross. Definitely not for the faint of heart. And leaves you with a not so happily ever after ending. If you like gore, you'll like this. If you're arachnaphobic, you'll hate it. For those of you who say all of these movies are alike, you'll be happy to know that this one is a little different. The title is more accurate than I thought. Though the story does concentrate mainly on the creature that the word 'arachnid' brings to mind, the spider, it is not limited to it. It includes other species of arachnids. And as an added bonus, there is a cute guy in it, who takes his shirt off for us. And for the guys, there is a girl in a bra. There is some comedy relief in small doses. I would recommend at least giving this movie a shot. There are worse movies out there that actually made it to the big screen.
