This spider is larger than an adult’s head. We get close-ups of its eyes and legs, but we never get a good look at it. It’s been a while since we’ve had a decent spider film that takes itself seriously. There are two major subplots, here, though, that make the film much heavier than it needs to be. There’s also way too much drama for a story about a giant spider.
Most social interactions belong to another movie. The script spends time in the wrong places. What is exposition good for if characters are constantly fighting? This family was doomed before the spider even showed up. The third act, on the other hand, is everything I wanted this to be. It’s brutal, fast-paced, and unpredictable. Sadly, the cast was too small for anyone else to die.
Denise Crosby plays a sympathetic Sheriff and she’s the only character with good vibes. Bruce Davison play the spiritual man who’s too old for this shit. Elizabeth Roberts is popping pills every other scene. The practical effects are amazing, but exclusively seen in the dark. The film is almost entirely shot in the dark, actually. It’s daunting, but if that’s what it takes...
The Almanac of Terror 2019: 89 Years of Horror Movie Statistics

The following recommendation lists are based on 2000 horror movie reviews. They were extracted from a database and formatted for this book. Tales of Terror (www.terror.ca) is an online “gamified” tool designed for horror fans, students, authors and filmmakers. “Gamification” is the adaptation and transformation of tangible concepts into empirical games. Not unlike sport publications, fantasy leagues and role-playing games, the Almanac of Terror mixes and aggregates different statistics, facts, ratings and opinions. Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability. We sometimes use the “creepiness” factor when populating certain lists.
