"Stoori Arizonan maaseutua terrorisoivasta jättikokoisesta, myrkkylampia ja luurankoja taakseen jättävästä tarantellasta on vielä toisellakin katselukerralla juuri niin mehukas, kuin miltä se kuulostaa. Laimeasta lopetuksesta huolimatta meininki on uskomattoman viihdyttävää ja dramaattiselle ilmapiirille sekä Toxic Avengerin esi-isälle jaksaa suuta pitää muikeana. Toteutuskin on erinomaista, vaikkakin jumbohämähäkin sulauttaminen kallioiden taakse ei aina olekaan kivuttomasti suj"

"Eihän tässä ole mitään järkeä, että jättiläishämähäkki terrorisoi naapurustoa. Silti tässä oli sopivan kalkkunamainen asenne, joka jaksoi kantaa odotettua paremmin. Tapahtumia on selitelty pikkuisen, mutta ne eivät muuta sitä tosi seikkaa, ettei niillä ole mitään merkitystä. Efektit ovat aikaansa nähden jopa kekseliäitä, ja jaksavat pitää katsojansa otteessaan. "

"July 22 Atomic-age sci-fi has above average special effects and while Clint Eastwood appear for under a minute, he did scorched the hell out of the monster."
