The fact that Ellory Elkayem has not yet killed himself offends God and mankind.

Basically exactly what you would expect from a movie about massive spiders

somehow, I really enjoy this kind of films, had so much fun watching this one..... only if the giant spiders would have been more realistic I would give another star to it

slightly humorous homage to the 50's giant bug movies. It would have been better with some blood and an R rating.

A chemical disaster causes mutation in spiders who wreak chaos in a small mining town. It's cheesy for sure but also entertaining.

Way way better than it should of been, Kind of a old style horror film that throws in some humour and it works, The effects were pretty poor and cheap even for then but it's quite entertaining and worth a watch.

I REALLY liked this movie A LOT. I get what it was going for: paying tribute to classic B-movies, while making fun of them at the same time. This is to B-movies what The Cabin in the Woods was for horror movies: it pokes fun at all the cliches of those respective genres, and doesn't take itself too seriously while doing it; you can tell they were having fun doing it, and it SHOWS! Also, I find it kind of ironic that a certain actress in this, a movie about spiders, went on to play a character named AFTER one.

A good homage to Tarantula (1955) and other desert sci-fi movies from the 50's. But i have to idmit, the first part was pretty good but then really descended into shit for a while, but after became better again. The acting is pretty solid and the comedy in this movie can actually be kind of funny. The CGI spider effects can look a little cartoony but it's alright. And an apperance by Scarlett Johanson and others!! It's not Arachnophobia, but it's still worth seeing!!

Certainly not master piece theater, but there were too many cringey gags

An unapologetically cheesy B-movie affair, Eight Legged Freaks is ridiculous, stupid fun. The ludacris premise, brisk pace, caricatures and arachnid monsters are what drive this film, and it's a fun Friday night type of flick with decent performances. Unless you're a severe arachnophobe, the dated CG I renders the spiders goofy instead of scary, comedic misfires are present and the final act is slightly overlong. Either way, Eight Legged Freaks is overall an admittedly imperfect but fine slice of no-brainer entertainment.

Going into this film, you should already know what you're gonna expect.

Come on now, it's not Shakespeare but its goofiness is enough to entertain.

such a cheesy movie, but good cheesy. Watch it with an arachniphobe and it's very funny and entertaining.

Fails as a comedy and as a horror film, Eight Legged Freaks starts with a great premise but then loses the touch as time runs.

Toxic waste is dumped into a small desert town's abandoned mines only to cause thousands of spiders to grow exponentially. These bugs quickly develop a taste for humans as the town's populace attempts to defend themselves from the horde. A well-done take on the "big bugs" movies popular in the 1950s (& late 1970s). Pretty good cgi, good acting, decent story, & lots of silliness makes this one of the better comedy-horror films from the 2000s.

One of my favorite guilty pleasure movies. Stupid and hilarious fun. Great monster movie.
½ November 12, 2014
A charming and well acted movie. Sure, the Special FX are a little dated, but that doesn't de-tract from the clever script and gleeful mayhem. Its an underrated movie. 66/100

Paying tribute to the 50's creature features, Eight Legged Freaks delivers a fresh dose of humor in the mix, nicely executed visual effects and solid performances by David Arquette and Kari Wuhrer.
