News & Interviews for Eight Legged Freaks
Critic Reviews for Eight Legged Freaks
What it lacks in scares, however, Eight Legged Freaks makes up for with gallons of gooey-green spider guts.
A fun, fantastic homage to the B movies of the golden age of horror cinema...
No Aracnhophobia but still good.
Audience Reviews for Eight Legged Freaks
This is an underrated monster flick that captures elements of old school 50's sci fi horror with a modern twist. I found this film to be very enjoyable and it was entertaining from start to finish. I found that the film was very well done, with great effects and enough comic relief to make this worthwhile viewing. I have had the opportunity to watch plenty of monster flicks from the 1950's, and this film captures the feel of the era. I find this film to be quite underrated and it doesn't deserve the flack it has received. If you want a silly, good time, then this is a terrific little chiller. The film has flaws, but it's very amusing, and it more than makes up for its imperfections. There are some good performances here, and the script is silly, funny and entertaining. Director Ellory Elkayem delivers a very good monster flick that if you're afraid of spiders, you probably shouldn't watch this. If you're in the mood for a fun little film, then this is the one to watch. I found it to be better than what most people have said about it, and there's a good plot here with enough visual flair to make it a memorable and fun viewing experience. There are plenty of things to enjoy here, and you can't take this one seriously. As far as I'm concerned, this is a fine little gem of a picture that captures the essence of 50's monster cinema and though it's nothing remarkable, it's nonetheless a fun flick for monster fans. There's a fine mix of comedy and thrills, and that's what makes Eight Legged Freaks a necessary viewing. One of the best monster flicks dealing with Spiders since Arachnophobia. Watch this film with an open mind, and you're to have a blast. This is a better film that what it initially gets credit for.
Far far too long. The cast of Eight Legged Freaks perform well but the film is neither funny or scary.
Even though I was sleeping through most of the second half I have to say...It wasn't a bad movie. Just some lame ass effects
