So much better then you'd think.
2 December 2013 | by thebat37See all my reviews

as i stated this flick was so much better then anticipated. if you've come this far, to the reviews, the title has obviously hooked you like it did me. I love big ass spider movies and this one was great. not only just for ridiculous giant spiderness but effects were way better then i thought they'd be. the acting was hilarious, so many jokes. i was quite literally laughing out loud for the whole movie. the corny jokes and buddy buddy between Alex and Jose was great. and on top of all that it had some very funny gore scenes. it seems like they had a lot of fun making the movie, which really comes through in the flick. if you enjoy giant bug movies or disaster flicks but feel like a more light-hearted, funny, and entertaining movie i absolutely would say this is the one for you.
