Giant insect movies will never stop being a B-movie trend, but one thing is for sure -- many of them will be better than Spiders
. There’s a few different ways to approach the genre: full-out camp; big-budget throwback (that eventually does terribly at the box office); or just phone the thing in, hoping the special effects will make up for what is lacking in everything else -- the latter being the Spiders
route. Mix one shot contagion movie, all too many shots of European streets subbing for New York, plus a mixer of giant CG spiders with gaping jaws that roar and the end result is a faux-thriller cocktail that goes down far harsher than you’d think.
