This film was begging for Nicholas Cage. Dr Fraser Crane held the post but there's nothing that some good old fashioned Nic Cage wooden acting wouldn't have done to put this film up in the Oscar nominee category.
If you like spiders that growl, ok-ish CGI, sets where cast walk through one door (scene cuts) and they walk back through the same door the other way to a different mediocre set .... then this bad boy is for you!!
Likes: 1) the spiders are considerate enough to always leave a web free safe passage for the cast tonthe next scene
2) these spiders have learnt to growl - it's about time our arachnid friends had a voice
3) Kelsey Grammer accent keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat for the length of the whole flick
Dislikes: no Nicholas Cage.
Summary: You'll be gutted if you don't watch this and the awards start rolling in at the oscars, baftas etc etc etc etc.
**SPOILER*** The only thing that would make the plot and cast of this film better is if 'Fraisers' 'Niles' popped up at the end and rescued his brothers soul.
