Kirk vs. the Tarantulas!

Spiders, in specific tarantulas, become more aggressive due to pesticide spraying in rural Arizona, and team up to try and take over the world! Okay, maybe not rule the world, but eat as much as they can. They start on cows and move to dogs and, pretty soon, it's human time! William Shatner plays a local veterinarian who is in the midst of the outbreak. He joins forces with a hottie scientist from the nearby university to take those eight-legged bastards down!

It takes a while to get going, but about 45 minutes in, the avalanche starts. This film plays as part-Jaws, part-70's disaster flick and it's a lot of fun throughout. Shatner does a great job of kicking ass without being corny and the spider attacks are pretty creepy/scary. If they remake this movie, it will be thousands of CGI spiders all hissing and howling as they attack. And that would be a shame, because seeing the real deal gives me the heebie-jeebies!

Rent it and enjoy!
