Synopsis


Arachnophobia
Referring to the fear of spiders, Arachnophobia features a particularly deadly species of spider that manages to make its way from the Venezuelan rain forest to a small California town, thanks to the many oversights of entomologist Julian Sands. Yuppie doctor Jeff Daniels, fed up with the dangers inherent in big-city living, has resettled in this town on the assumption that nothing untoward could ever happen here to himself and his family. Before long, however, Daniels is trying to make sense of a series of sudden deaths-and to figure out why each of the corpses has been drained of blood. The audience, of course, knows that the culprits are those pesky South American spiders, which grow larger with each kill. To make matters worse, Jeff Daniels suffers from a profound case of arachnophobia. John Goodman supports the cast as a slovenly exterminator, and Frank Marshall, longtime producer of Steven Spielberg's films, makes his directorial debut in Arachnophobia. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    l have enjoyed watching this movie for years, on the rare times it was on TV, so was happy to find it at a decent price as a DVD to own, so l could watch it anytime l wanted to! It is a trifle dated now--after all, it is a good 25 years old--but is still a fun watch! Glad l finally got it!

    Only For the Brave of Heart

    'Arachnophobia' is actually a very well made film. The only problem is, most viewers will probably find themselves extremely uncomfortable while watching it (I know I was). The film offers some pretty good performances, especially by John Goodman, who plays the town exterminator. Recommended, but only for the brave of heart.

    Definitely a good movie! It is between a horror movie and a comedy to me. It has a good cast and crew as well as a good story line. Definitely worth checking out...unless you’re deathly afraid of spiders.

    I haven't seen this since the days of VHS! Yes, this movie is creepy but it's a lot of fun, and John Goodman is great! My only complaint is that Goodman's character isn't in it more.

    A great cast for a great movie. It's a good movie for a bit of a scare, but is really loaded with comedy. Put together in a way that makes this movie worth a watch if you haven't seen it.

    This movie is nostalgia to me so I may be biased, but I always enjoy watching the movie and how freaky they made the spiders seem when they were coming after people.
