Let the squashing begin! What do you get when you cross toxic waste with a bunch of exotic spiders? Eaten!!! The townies of Prosperity, Arizona, will all become a screaming smorgasbord if mutated arachnids as big as SUV's have their way in this comedy/horror crowd pleaser whose creators include the producers of Independence Day and Godzilla. Spiders that leap like gazelles, web-spitting spiders, spiders that suck your inside through a straw- they're among the behemoths conjured up by an inventive effects team. David Arquette heads the two-legged stars, mobilizing the citizenry in a last ditch fight to survive. Here's hoping they succeed. Otherwise Prosperity- maybe the world -may be reduced to one giant, uh, website!
