Eight Legged Freaks (2002) - Synopsis ImageWhat do you get when you cross toxic waste with a bunch of exotic spiders? Eaten. As every fan of classic spine-tinglers knows, given the opportunity and the right chemical enhancement, arachnids will grow to humongous size and wreak havoc upon humanity. In "Eight Legged Freaks" the residents of a rural mining town discover that an unfortunate chemical spill has caused hundreds of little spiders to mutate overnight to the size of SUVs. And they're hungry.

When the alarm is sounded, it is up to mining engineer Chris McCormack (Arquette) and Sheriff Sam Parker (Wuhrer) to mobilize an eclectic group of townspeople, including the Sheriff's young son, Mike (Scott Terra), her daughter, Ashley (Scarlett Johansson) and paranoid radio announcer Harlan (Doug E. Doug), into battle against the bloodthirsty eight-legged beasts. -- 2002 Warner Bros.
