What do you get when you cross toxic waste with a bunch of exotic spiders?...
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 into the size of SUVs.
And they're hungry.
When the alarm is sounded, it is up to mining engineer Chris McCormick (David Arquette) and Sheriff Sam Parker (Kari Wuhrer) to mobilize an eclectic group of townspeople, including the Sheriff¹s young son, Mike (Scott Terra), her daughter, Ashley (Scarlett Johansson), paranoid radio announcer Harlan Griffith (Doug E Doug) and Deputy Pete Willis (Rick Overton) into battle against the bloodthirsty eight-legged beasts.
With state-of-the-art visual effects conceived and rendered by CFX (INDEPENDENCE DAY, THE PATRIOT), EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS updates such inspired genre classics as THEM and THE BLACK SCORPION.
