Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A huge improvement on director Brett Piper's clumsy Psyclops, Arachnia is a deliberate throwback to yesteryear: It's an archly styled creature feature with a 1950s sensibility and a hip, post-modern attitude. Forget overused computer generated special effects, the big bugs here are clay stop-motion animations and fuzzy puppets (and no one seems to mind that the colors don't match). The brief sex and nudity are shamelessly gratuitous, as is the occasional gore. Arachnia's humor and horror are akin to Tremors, but without the budget. And while it won't keep anyone but severe arachnophobics awake at night, it will amuse sci-fi, cult and horror buffs.

B-Movie Fun This is for creature feature fans only. This has an arrogant college professor. Bad-boy pilot. Gorgeous bad-girl. Two eye-candy simpletons. The other character are only in the movie to die. Spider affects are straight to DVD quality, and plot is that quality level also. Any who enjoy the absurdity of creature features will enjoy this. This is pure B-Movie fun.
