A bunch of people crash land in spider country. A meteor shower has awakened the beasts from the bowels of the Earth. They hook up with an old coot who tells them all about giant spiders. Soon claymation spiders attack as the heroes devise ways of killing the eight legged freaks.

"Arachnia" did the best it could. It stretched its $200 budget as far as humanly possible. They could only afford one girl getting naked. The brunette had to carry the workload for the other two women in the movie. She was a team player. That was nice.I give a lot of points for nudity and sleaze. It can save otherwise dismal movies for me.

The spiders were as cheap and fake as you would expect. In fact, all of the effects were pretty bad. But this movie was fun. Sure, the acting wasn't stellar but everyone gave it their best shot. "Arachnia" was a B-movie and proud of it. The ending takes it over the top. I liked it.

SCORE: 2.5 out of 4 naked brunettes in giant spider country

Along came a spider...
