5.0 out of 5 stars Classic! 4 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
What? You've never seen Arachnophobia? I don't believe you! I'm pretty sure everyone in the world has seen and been chilled to the bone by this film... the first time I saw it, it scared the crap out of me and has haunted me ever since - I still look up at light fittings and shower heads on entering the bathroom!
This is a must for your collection, whether you buy loads of DVDs or are just looking for something to try out your new piece of kit. ...you'd be hard pressed to get a better deal! Buy this one now!

4.0 out of 5 stars funny, thrilling and disturbing 23 Aug 2011
By Sam
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The directorial debut for friend of Steven Speilberg Frank Marshall is a very good one, the taught atmosphere, witty dialogue and tense moments are all reminiscent of Spielberg's other films, though it is clear he has not directed. The theme of spiders will put a lot of people off watching this film and i can't blame them, having arachnophobia i found watching this at times very uncomfortable and tense, particualrily because real spiders are used for most of the scenes making the experience even more realistic and chilling. Jeff Daniels is a little miscast here but he fares well enough as the main character who has a paralysing fear of spiders and ends up having to face them in the films excellent climax. John Goodman is very funny as the exterminator and his role livens the film up. Julian Sands is a bad actor and his part as the spider expert is wooden and unrealistic. The film doesn't take itself seriously, a mistake a lot of creature features make, and as a result the experience is more enjoyable and the laughs and chills are mixed equally enough to make it bearable and enjoyable. If you do have a fear of spiders then walk on because this definitley will make you check the bath before you get in and have you keeping the windows closed at all times.
The only negative is the poor animatronic spider seen in quite a few shots, bearing in mind this film is twenty years old there not that bad but comapared to special effects of Jurassic Park which was released close to this the animatronic spiders are clearly fake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiders, spiders, spiders! 22 Aug 2002
Format:DVD
My girlfriend says that everyone is scared of spiders... i disagree, i love them. This film gives arachnophobes an excuse, but my god, what a film! Full of classic Acting and an original, if a little far-fetched, storyline. The tension built in this film is amazing. Also before watching this, bear in mind it is actually full of real spiders, there are only a couple of fake ones. A definate must see, especially if you want to show your girlfrined how brave you are, watch this and then go and clear the house of spiders!!! This is at least a must-watch, but i would definately recomend buying it.

By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When a photographer is bitten and killed by a spider in the Venezuelan jungle, his body is shipped back to his home town of Canaima in California. Unfortunately something has hitched a ride in his coffin......

Mixing B movie conventions with modern day fun, Arachnophobia sees Frank Marshall direct and Jeff Daniels, Julian Sands, John Goodman and Harley Jane Kozak line up in the cast. Tho horror and comedy on the surface doesn't seem to be a that hard to blend together, it's surprising over the years just how few horror comedy movies can claim to be successful and have been able to to win over a like minded audience. In fact, if we move away from the likes of Sean Of The Dead, the B movie creature feature, especially in modern times, has few offerings of worth. We can certainly mention the awesome (and best of the modern bunch) Tremors, which turned a small Worldwide profit, and then we turn to Lake Placid and Arachnophobia. Both of the latter made considerable amounts of cash (for the genre) and are propelled by a degree of star wattage. What was in Arachnophobia's favour too, was that spiders strike the fear of god into many people, thus, as Marshall said himself on the publicity junket, "People like to be scared but laughing at the same time". Arachnophobia achieves this in spades, mixing real spiders (Avondale breed) with model and magnet work, the effect achieved is nervy giggles coupled with creepy goose flesh putting in an appearance.

The cast work hard to make it work. OK, Sands remains as wooden as he always is, but in this case his pompous bug professor calls for it. Daniels as the modern doctor hoping to start a new life in the country, is an excellent lead, a fine actor who's no show on the A list of Hollywood remains an utter mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars a nifty creature feature 19 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
This often amusing, sometimes suspenseful film about killer spiders starts out in the dense jungles of Venezuela, with bug-O-maniac Julian Sands, as he tracks down a new species of lethal as well as big and hairy arachnid. One of these hairy creatures finds its way to sweet suburbia in California, using a wooden coffin as transport, and starts mating with the local spider population, causing havoc and rigor mortis.
City transplant Jeff Daniels, a doctor with severe arachnophobia, who wants the quiet country life as long as he doesn't have to see a spider, finds himself the center of controversy because of the deaths, and his newly bought house infested with the critters. Daniels, one of Hollywood's more underrated actors, gives a terrific performance as Dr. Jennings, as he tries some hands-on therapy for his phobia.
John Goodman is hilarious as the town exterminator, who if he can't kill 'em with insecticide, uses his big boots, and others in the fine cast are Harley Jane Kozak as Molly Jennings, Henry Jones as old Dr. Metcalf, and Stuart Pankin as stubborn Sheriff Parsons. This was the feature film directorial debut for Frank Marshall, who has been known mostly as a producer, mainly for Stephen Spielberg's films. A good score by Trevor Jones (with songs like Jimmy Buffett's "Don't Bug Me") adds to the overall enjoyment of this fun creature feature, which takes us back to the days when the big bugs were filmed in black and white.
Total running time is 103 minutes.

Absolutely bloody terrifying. And creepy. Hugely unnerving. I feel like they're all all over me. But also highly entertaining. Highly recommended.
