Arachnophobia is a movie that I saw for the first time when I was 11 and haven’t since until this week. I never hear everyone talking about this film. Nobody has even seen it or heard of it for the most part. I want see more spider movies like arachnophobia. What I mean by that is good but also kinda scary, and that’s what this film is. I think a lot more people should see this movie to say the least. The spiders was a big worry for me when rewatching this film cause I didn’t remember what they looked like and they look like spiders. I cringed every time I saw them on screen, but in a good way. John Goodman brings a lot to the film as the exterminator, he’s pretty funny and likable. One thing I always love in horror movies is when you route for the main characters and with this film I did. This is one of those films that you watch for 2 hours and think, “That shouldn’t have been as good as it was.” But that just might be the experience you get. It definitely has some flaws. A lot of the acting from minor characters could be a lot better and there’s a 2 minute scene before the credits that I thought was completely unnecessary. Arachnophobia is pretty underrated and overlook. I look forward to telling more and more people to check this one out.
