High level: Toasted (3/5)

This Fun, Obnoxious, Exciting, popcorn classic is exactly what we were looking for.

Eight Legged Freaks seamlessly blends homages to modern-day Zombie films, classic slashers films and cult monster flicks together and manages to pull it off.

Armed with 'good-for-its-time' cgi combined with practical effects akin to 'Honey I Shrunk', a well rounded and believable cast of characters perfectly punctuated by their camp performances. All these elements and more seem to seamlessly complement the cartoony after-school special feel, that is Eight Legged Freaks.
