Started watching Arachnia
last night. Didn't make it all the way through; kept falling asleep buyt in fairness that was my fault, not the movies.
This is a *really* low budget monster movie. The special effects were probably on par with the 1950s "Black Scorpion" (which puts it a notch below "Them")
The acting was terrible. One character in particular I was thinking "I really hope he goes first" after about 2 minutes, because he was that annoying (and I correctly guessed I had seem him Psyclops, which was also done by the same guy, Brett Piper, as this one)
Anyway, I haven't seen enough of it cohernetly to really have a judgement; bad acting a bad special effects could still be entertaining. So I'll researve total judgement until I can back up a bit and see more of it in context.
You could tell they through some gratuitous T&A to try to raise the interest level, but I wish they'd spent the money in other areas of the production.
Seems, though, that some people are still makeing very-low budget, formulaic horror movies for fun, and I'll give credit for that.
But...if you see this one to pickup, *don't* be misled into thinking it's anything great; it's very cheap with a forumal script, bad attacking, annoying characters and very bad stop motion monsters. If this is your thing..go for it. If not, be warned
