The residents of a rural mining town discover that an unfortunate chemical spill has caused hundreds of little spiders to mutate overnight to the size of 4WDs. It's up to mining engineer Chris McCormack (David Arquette) and Sheriff Sam Parker (Kari Wuhrer) to mobilise an eclectic group of townspeople into battle against the bloodthirsty eight-legged beasts.

Theatrical report

A pastiche of B-grade mutant monster flicks. You would make a scarier flick if you used footage from the original films. Enough said.

FYI: For those of you who want to learn English, the title as shown on the poster is spelled incorrectly. Eight legged freaks means "eight freaks with legs". Eight-legged freaks with a hyphen means "two or more freaks, each with eight legs".
