This is an enjoyably silly sci-fi horror film, about a giant alien spider on the rampage in Los Angeles.
Alex Mathis is a thirty-something pest control man. He's a plain speaking, likeable bear of a man (think of him as John Travolta's fat brother), who's devoted to his job and unlucky in love. He flirts with every attractive woman he meets, but he's always punching well above his weight (which takes some doing).
Alex needs medical treatment at a hospital located in Downtown Los Angeles, as the result of a spider bite. During his stay one of the staff is attacked and bitten by what they can only describe as like a spider but bigger than a spider. Alex then goes in pursuit of the football sized arachnid through the hospital air conditioning system.
The spider is an alien life form which has escaped from a military research base. The army are in determined pursuit and they soon arrive at the hospital. The military boffins are extremely anxious to trace and capture the creature, because it's going to quadruple in size every four hours. The spider manages to outwit its pursuers and escapes from the hospital, leaving Alex and the army to team up in a search and destroy mission. Before long the alien is six feet tall and being spotted in the less salubrious neighbourhoods of Los Angeles. When the spider goes on its first killing rampage, in a busy recreational park, it's really good fun in a Jurassic Park sort of way. But that's only the start of the monster mayhem...
This is a campy, corny, and enjoyable sci-fi horror flick.

Exterminator Alex Mathis (Greg Grunberg) likes women and loathes fruitcake. Through a series of improbable circumstances he gets to fight an aggressive BA spider along side of the US military with a Mexican sidekick.

In a number of scenes Grunberg reminded me of Kevin James and I had a few John Goodman flashbacks. The film had blood and cheesy props (notice the thanks to Lloyd Kaufman in the credits). The "horror" aspect simply didn't exist. Overly accomplished, relatively unknown Clare Kramer provided the love interest.

Great for cheese lovers.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Bikini girls being chased by BS spider.

not great, but not bad either! considering most of these films suck so hard they go full circle into amazingness anyway. I'd say watch it, but don't expect to find the next mega shark vs giant octopus. This is like a cheap...er version of eight legged freaks. Nothing new but a decent popcorn flik!!!

Well as anyone can tell from the title this is never meant to be a serious horror film
Action is pretty much all the way through the film, with some slightly dodgy looking effects - but nothing serious.

More fun than scary

I am a self-confessed connoisseur of bad and cheesy disaster and creature movies BUT this one is neither bad nor cheesy-in-a-bad-way but deliberately-cheesy and silly. It's a fun film and I was thoroughly entertained, more than once laughing out loud. The acting was really good and I felt at times there were moments of stoner movie glimpses.
This film is much better than one might expect and well worth a buy, it's great fun.

If you are a fan of cheesy painfully bad B movies then this film is for you.
Whilst there are a few laughs at the exterminator's clown-like clumsiness, overall it didn't do much for me.
Rather disappointed and I see this as one to hide at the back of your dvd collection.

This is a great low-budget movie. The script is funny, with great performances from the actors and some inspired moments from a talented director. This is an entertaining monster movie that is well worth 80 minutes of your time.

If you like this kind of movie (comedy with big monsters) this one is just great. Actors are really good and dont overplay.
It is very funny and it is pretty well filmed.
You spend a good time watching this movie.
