Arachnophobia (1990)

Yeah? So?

Hmm.  Maybe this was scary or at least creepy when this came out in 1990, but it doesn’t hold up 18 years later.  If anyone who is reading this saw this movie while it was in theaters, I would like to know what you first thought of it.

Arachnophobia could have been 20+ minutes shorter had they cut the unncessary and boring introduction to how the spider came to America.  This could have easily been shown in two or less minutes instead.  That made me already lose half my interest.  Then when we get to the town where the movie takes place, it’s boring once more.  I don’t like spiders as much as the next person, but I think you’d have to be deathly afraid of them in order to be scared by this movie.  I know this is also supposed to be a comedy and not just a horror movie, but it failed at both.  Sorry.
