Eight Legged Freaks


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.
