Other Notes: Finally, a movie worthy of Mystery Science Theater 3000! So bad it’s good and then bad again. I vaguely remember this being on TV when I was little and of course being terrified of it, but I buried that shit way deep. I also remember my dad taking me and my brother to see Arachnophobia after my first day of fifth grade (the same dad who tortured his 3 sisters growing up playing shark in the pool and dropping metal soldiers hot from the oven into their hands). Why am I living in the woods again?? Those Mexican red knees were really pretty though. An absurd and entertaining film.

Grade: C+
