Eight Legged Freaks

3

Hastily retitled by marketing fruits who felt audiences would confuse Arac Attack with Herr Bush's foreign policy, this jumbo bug homage is an agreeable if not especially resourceful brain-dissolver.

Rigidly clinging to B-movie policy, its main problem is that the knowing winks are so weak-lidded it views like a particularly unapologetic plundering of the genre's back catalogue. So, alongside the tick-it-off exposition and radioactive beasties, we get an under-siege community with the requisite mayor, teen dudes and a hairsprayed helmet of a kid who looks like a waxwork Harry Potter. A motocross pursuit excites and the spindly monstoids amuse, but really, this has all been done before.
