THE PLOT:

The corrupt business man who spent allot of money to build a mall in a small town that no one goes to makes a deal to store toxic waste at the old mine. But one canister of toxic waste falls off the truck when the driver swerves to miss a bunny rabbit crossing the street.

The canister lands in a tiny pound just outside of town where local Spider ranger catches his crickets for his exotic spiders. The crickets drank the contanminated water and the spiders eat the crickets. Before you can say fifties monster movie, the eight legged freaks are born.

It's up to the Sheriff and her old boyfriend who just came back into town to find a way to squash these oversize arachnids once and for all.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

This is a great flick, it's old fashion monster making magic at it's finest. The story, the characters, the effects are all great. It's the kind of fun movie they use to make in the fifties. That watch out for mutation monster movies. The kind that Roger Cormen and Burt I. Gordon use to make. But this movie took longer then the weekend to make. The creature effects were realistic and cool. The spiders had personality. The human cast does a great job, the radio guy and his alien talk got annoying. He totally believes in aliens but can't fathom mutations. A conspiracy nut like him should believe that radiation causes mutations, and if the Government covers aliens up they sure hell would cover mutants up. Anyway, one minor thing during the grand scheme of things.
I give EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS...9 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

The point is fun and this is a fun movie. Not for everyone that is. I like to add something to what Zedd wrote. He wrote that this is the kind of monster movie Roger Cormen and Burt I. Gorden use to make. Well this is better then Cormen and Gordon could due put together. I think this movie is great and deserves to be watched. I might even recommend it as a buried treasure in the not too distant future. I give it....8 STARS
