San Francisco Chronicle
Has a smart mix of things going for it, including a self-effacing sense of humor. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Awkward, obvious and sporadically -- very sporadically -- amusing. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
This update of 1950s drive-in sci-fiers finds the right balance between icky, funny and scary, with sheer energy compensating for a script that could have used more parodic panache. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The actual movie is the cinematic equivalent of cheap Chinese egg rolls: all flour and cabbage shreds, maybe half a nibble of pork. Full Review
Gene Seymour
Los Angeles Times
So why does Eight Legged Freaks make one laugh out loud even though there is nothing revolutionary about its approach to the giant bug genre? -- the movie is so unapologetic in its crassness that it disarms even the fussiest connoisseur of throwaway disaster flicks. Full Review
