Critic Reviews for Earth vs. the Spider
A worthwhile genre entry that's less about science playing God and more about the dangers of losing the ability to distinguish between reality and fantasy.
Audience Reviews for Earth vs. the Spider
Take a Spider-Man base and add a jigger of the Cronenberg's Fly, mix with a dash of toxic avenger and you get Earth vs. The Spider.
Based on a script by Jurassic Park's conceptual designer Mark 'Crash' McCreery, the concept sound like fun on paper "a comic book nerd gets injected with an experimental serum and starts to gain the abilities of a spider, like being able to shoot webs...from his abdomen. He decides this is awesome and starts to fight crime, except unlike Peter Parker he's got deep seated issues so he gets himself in trouble. It's also got bit parts from Dan Aykryod, John Cho and a chic who stole Denise Richards DNA.
It unfortunately never lives up to it's potential as it's story meanders all over the place, taking it self WAY to seriously to be fun.
