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...

Isn't it worth paying into any film that features a talking parrot writing off The Sixth Sense with just a single line?

Fun comedy horror that recognizes its limitations and revels in its own absurdity, though too polite to be a classic in its genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

It's actually kinda scary. Scary in a really, really dumb way, but scary!

After rolling out the trusty old 'radiocative barrel in the lake' routine, Eight Legged Freaks flips through the pages of the monster movie manual - written in the 50s by classics such as Them and Tarantula - and doesn't miss a trick.

A ridiculous but enjoyably campy 'creature feature' that serves as the logical extension of goosey, B-movie matinee shenanigans in a world gone 'X-treme.'

The pure malevolence of the movie has to be appreciated on some level (not even one of the family pets lives to see daylight).

'Eight Legged Freaks is drive-in-flavored arachnid anarchy...[a]cinematic fun ride where creepy-crawly things constantly pop out from off-screen.'
| Original Score: 3/5

...I thoroughly checked for spiders under my pillow before I went to bed.

A gem of a movie - a genuine "eww-gross" schlockhorror that's also a great send-up for fans of '50s B-movies.

Eight Legged Freaks is a rare creature feature that actually suffers when the filmmakers try to make the human characters more like the genuine articles.
