Review of Arachnophobia

3 years, 10 months ago at Feb 15 6:53
The title should be a hint, but if spiders give you the willies, Arachnophobia will be your own personal horror show. The icky factor is dialed to a 10, providing some effective moments of skin-crawling. In other words, Arachnophobia is a deliciously fun ride, with genuine thrills and legitimate laughs.

The amusingly self-aware plot is that by unfortunate chance, a deadly Venezuel... read more

Description: Most horror movies depend on giant monsters; Arachnophobia gets just as many thrills out of creatures only a few inches long. A scientist (Julian Sands, Warlock, A Room with a View) who's hunting a vicious new species of spider in Venezuela unknowingly ships one back to the U.S. It ends up in a small town where a new doctor (Jeff Daniels, The Purple Rose of Cairo, Something Wild) is trying to establish a practice. When his patients start suddenly dying, Daniels suspects spiders--but no one takes him seriously because he's had a phobia about spiders since childhood. Arachnophobia builds a slow but relentless sense of menace and c ... (more)

"25th of November, DVD Hämähäkkikammoisille tämä voi olla kova pala nieltäväksi. Itse olin sitä pienenä, mutten enää. Jännitystä söi huomattavasti myös se, miten luonnottoman vaarallisia elokuvan hämähäkit loppujen lopuksi ovat. Nämä kahdeksanjalkaiset tapaukset pystyvät paitsi loikkimaan, myös vakoilemaan ja niiden myrkky tappaa aikuisen ihmisenkin hetkessä. Kokonaisuus tuntuu tasapainottelevan trillerin ja kauhukomedian välillä ilman, että osaa päättää sitä oikea"

" One of the more realistic and better scripted spider attack movies out there. It teases only a few times with it but luckily it never really ever places kids in any annoying "they are in extreme dangerous" situations and instead the film focuses on a phobic father and it all feels a lot more refreshing because of it. John Goodman steals scenes as an exterminator. Characters are actually well-written in this film and not all of them "deserve to die" as are usual the case with these "monster" fil"

" LAST WATCHED: 3/7/2017             COMMENTS: I wouldn't go so far as to say that I like spiders, but I definitely don't suffer from arachnophobia. With that being said, this movie is enough to terrify any person, phobic or not. Yes, it has it's comedic elements, but that whole situation is nightmare-inducing.

" As far as creature features go, Arachnophobia is quite good. More or less achieving exactly what it sets out to do. It nicely manages to walk the line between being humorous and slightly frightening. The horror aspect of the film is well-handled and there are several tense moments that creepily gets under your skin because the spiders are convincingly portrayed in a scary way. The humor in the film is funny, and luckily the humor comes from the characters being interesting and amusing, and not"
