Have seen this movie many times, even when it first came out on tape. It is one of those hidden dark-comedy gems and Jeff Daniels is brilliant. Highly recommend even for those who hate spiders!

this got a 4 outta 5 stars ONLY because the dvd was an original recording and it almost comes out sort of 'pixelated' on my flatscreen, but as far as the seller goes? by all means, i highly recommend!

THIS MOVIE IS MORE OF A COMEDY THAN A HORROR. JOHN GOOODMAN IS SO FUNNY. THERE ARE SOME JUMPY MOMENTS WITH THE LITTLE KILLER SPIDERS, BUT FOR THE MOST PART, IT IS JUST A GOOD OLD COMEDY MOVIE.

Format: DVD
Director: Frank Marshall
Cast: Jeff Daniels, John Goodman, Harley Jane Kozak.
Running Time: 110 minutes.
Rated PG-13 for arachnid violence and language.
In true Spielberg-formula fashion, director Frank Marshall (who produced many of Spielberg's works during the 1980's) creates a tense, atmospheric thriller that has enough scares and laughs for two movies. A deadly South American spider is accidentally braught to a small, country town--the spider proceeds to kill of many of the inhabitants and gives birth to hundreds of venomous spawn. Small-town doctor Jeff Daniels, who happens to be horrified of the eight-legged beasts, must conjure up enough strength to save his community, and more importantly his family from the threatening bugs.
John Goodman is down-right hilarious as the Rambo-esque terminator, using a splendid script to invoke many laughs throughout the picture. Daniels is equally good as the tormented M.D., running around like a petrified girl scout at the beginning of the film, but ultimately encounters the mother-spider for the showdown of all man vs. spider showdowns. A fun, exciting scare fare that is actually viewable for most of the family due to its fairly low amounts of violence and profanity.

If ever a movie deserved the title arachnophobia, it is definitly this one. I saw this when I kid, and still have a huge fear of spiders, thanks to this movie. Although really fearful of spiders, I love this movie because it plays so beautifully into it. The last 15-30 minutes will make anyones skin crawl, and I definitly recommened this to anyone, even those with arachnophobia.

I still get the heeby jeebies when watching this movie even after so many years after first seeing it and having horrific nightmares for days afterwards even though I've grown to appreciate spiders more nowadays. The reason this movie is so able to scare is because of it's suprisingly realistic nature of dangerous spiders with extremely toxic venom being able to be transported to different countries.
In this case, a species of spider from South America hitches a ride aboard a ship and ends up breeding with the domestic house spiders in the United States and the hatchling spiders start killing residents of a small California town and time is running out to stop the spiders from spreading and breeding with more domestic house spiders and enabling this dangerous species to spread all over the United States.
This is a really terrifying and very well thought-out movie of immense proportions. It truly demonstrates why it's a very bad idea to bring 'alien' species to other lands other than their own native habitats.
Go and get this movie if you want a scary but fun ride. Arachnophobes though should steer clear. For everyone else, welcome aboard!

Out of all the movies that have been re-released out on DVD, this has to be one of the ones I'm most grateful for. It's been years since I saw this movie last, but when I saw it for sale, I could not resisit the urge to buy it. This film is fantastic. Jeff Daniels is surprisingly good, and helps to carry the movie along well. The entire cast is rather zany, and that really makes it a great movie to watch. The plot revolves around incredibly venomous spiders from Argentina who have cross-breeded with a common house spider here in America. Jeff Daniels plays a doctor who suffers from arachnophobia. Hence you can see where this is going. Daniels ineviatbly has to face his fear and the results are funny, tense, and frightening. If you are afraid of spiders, I wouldn't watch this movie, it seriously can frighten you. But, John Goodman appears as Delbert to liven things up and make the atmosphere more humerous. Topped off with a very good soundtrack, this movie is far beyond your average horror flick. Sit back and enjoy this one, it's excellent.
