Eight Legged Freaks (2002) – Official Trailer

What do you get when you cross toxic waste with a bunch of exotic spiders? Eaten! The townies of Prosperity, Arizona will all become a screaming smorgasbord if mutated arachnids as big as SUVs have their way in this comedy/horror crowd pleaser whose creators include the producers of Independence Day and Godzilla. Spiders that leap like gazelles, web-spitting spiders, spiders that suck your insides out as if through a straw – they’re all among the behemoths conjured up by an inventive effects team.

David Arquette (Scream) leads the two-legged stars, mobilizing the citizenry in a last-ditch fight to survive. Here’s hoping they succeed. Otherwise, Prosperity – maybe the world – could be reduced to one giant, uh, website!
