Many people don't know about the lost verse of "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" wherein the arachnid protagonist invades a small town and nearly kills everyone with its highly toxic venom and rapid reproduction rate. Luckily, Director Frank Marshall adapted it for film under the title Arachnophobia, starring Jeff Daniels, Julian Sands, John Goodman, and Harley Jane Kozak. Not only is the film rather entertaining, it one ups Jaws in the creature feature horror factor by making you afraid to ever again put on slippers, take a shower, use a toilet, eat popcorn, or investigate an old barn. Even if you "don't mind" spiders (tough guy talk for 'I get really quiet and wait for it to stop moving so I can step on it and end any chances it might have of biting me'), Arachnophobia is about as effective a thriller as there is.
Just in time for Halloween we're giving away one copy of Arachnophobia on Blu-ray, and to find out how you can win it, you just have to keep reading.
Here's the official summary:
Everyone is afraid of something... for Dr. Ross Jennings (Jeff Daniels), his pobia is downright embarrassing. But when he moves his family to a small town, the thing that bugs him most is now harming the townspeople at an alarming rate. For this unlikely hero, overcoming a childhood fear of spiders might just save the community, but it may already be too late!
