Arachnophobia ★★★★

Think of all the great films Steven Spielberg's produced over the years. Gremlins, Back To The Future, The Goonies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Men In Black etc. Arachnophobia is right up there in my opinion.
A great schlocky genre movie which dances between Comedy Horror, Family Film and B-Movie silliness. I suppose a modern equivalent would be something like James Gunn's Slither.

Arachnophobia never fails in making my skin creep and my toes curl. When it comes to spiders, I am a massive mary-queen. Jeff Daniels and John Goodman give impressive performances. Even the awful Julian Sands doesn't stink up this movie.

Some great laughs, some freaky scenes and a satisfying final battle. I've sat through hours of gory horrors and psychological thrillers but nothing gets under my skin as much as these 8 legged, hairy little bastards!
