Fairly engaging.

"Arachnophobia" is a notch or two above the typical creature horror movie, with solid special effects and a decent story that isn't just one "Boo!" after the other.

Preys upon that dread in a wonderfully cinematic manner, elegantly keeping the antics lighthearted enough to encourage a viewing, but eventually digging into spiderific panic -- pure candy to horror junkies on the prowl for the perfect thrill.

Frank Marshall's sophisticated feature directing debut never indulges in ultimate gross-out effects and carefully chooses both its victims and its means of depicting their dispatch.

First-time director Frank Marshall has long been Steven Spielberg's producer, and he's learned the master's lessons well.

Designed to reduce the audience to a squirming mass, the film yields plenty of grisly pleasures.

Plenty of laughs, but the action scenes don't really generate much in the way of scares. Good enough for Sunday afternoon, though.

That sound you hear in the background is the ''ugh!'' heard round the world. Luckily, ''Arachnophobia'' will also be generating its share of boisterous, nervous laughter.

Spider terror -- overproduced and effects-driven, but adequate.

The creepiest, most entertaining insect invasion I've ever seen.

It didn't live up to the hype, but most anyone whose seen it has walked away at least a little more afraid of spiders.

Family-friendly bug invasion flick that's both spooky and amusing.

It's a one-joke movie, a funhouse ride, the cinematic equivalent of having a rubber spider thrown in your lap. But it doesn't matter if you reject the wispy script or the plot, which has as much substance as a spider's web; you'll jump every time.

Frank Marshall, a constant Spielberg collaborator, makes his directorial debut in this genial horror movie, a sweet infestation that creeps and crawls but wouldn't scare anybody.

Marshall has given moviegoers a remarkable first-time directing effort with this horror-comedy, offering more thrills, chills and laughs than any scary movie since the first "Poltergeist."

Directing duties go to Frank Marshall who makes a brilliant debut, effectively weaving together thrills and humour in equal measure.

This is the kind of movie where you squirm out of enjoyment, not terror, and it's probably going to be popular with younger audiences - it doesn't pound you over the head with violence.
