Arachnophobia (1990)

Eight-legs, two fangs and an attitude. In this episode, we take you on a journey from the deep jungles of Venezuela to Canaima, California, as we follow the adventures of Big Bob, a lovable previously unknown species of spider who has plans to make it big in the USA. On his way he finds love and starts a family, but quickly becomes the target of a community resistant to change and new ideas. Can Big Bob make them see that just because something’s different, doesn’t mean it’s bad?  Join us as we… wait, what do you mean that’s not what this is? Oh… strap in for thrills, creepy crawly chills and goofy guffaws as we untangle the web of Frank Marshall’s directorial debut - the ‘thrill-omedy’ ‘Arachnophobia’. From fang-tastic animatronics to Jimmy Buffet songs and a handsome Jeff Daniels, no dark corner or cereal box is left unexplored. We even tuck into some Amblin news with our thoughts on the first Jurassic World: Dominion trailer and more! Rock and roll!
