Not the worst creature feature I've ever seen, but certainly not the best. Pickens are slim when it comes to giant spider movies but you would obviously do better to go with The Mist, Return of the King or Eight Legged Freaks. It was kind of fun to try and figure out everything the doctor was saying though. Honestly the only reason I watched this was because there was a cool looking pic of the spider in the John Landis book Monsters in the Movies, and the monster was indeed kinda cool, but the movie was pretty bad. And the opening stuff with the aliens was so pointless.
