Arachnicide! But where were the spiders?...
30 April 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I found the cover/poster for "Arachnicide" to be alluring, and I must admit that I am a sucker for movies that include monstrous or gargantuan versions of creatures of any kind. So naturally I sat down to watch "Arachnicide", especially since there is just something fascinating about huge spiders.

But often it turns out that creature features tend to be questionable and cheesy. "Arachnicide", whether it was one of those movies, I can't really say. Why? Well, because I just managed to sit through 26 minutes into this ordeal. I gave up out of sheer and utter boredom, and also because in all that time there had been no indication or viewing of any kind of spiders.

The movie turned out to be boring and pointless, to be brutally honest and frank. And as I gave up, I can honestly say that I have no intention whatsoever to return to "Arachnicide" to view the rest of the movie.

From what I saw in terms of acting during the 26 minutes I managed to sit through, just color me unimpressed. You know exactly what you will get here, especially for a movie such as this.

Now, I didn't see any special effects from what I sat through, and that was also a deal breaker, because a creature feature should have good effects to make it convincing and realistic. But of course, that would also require that you had actually seen some creatures - which hadn't been there for those 26 minutes.

"Arachnicide" scores 2 out of 10 stars from me, managing to rise above a rating of 1 solely because there are worse movies out there.
