"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.

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.
