David Arquette is one heck of a screamer, which you’ll find out by clicking on the ”Go to the Site!” button. But otherwise, the tabloid-inspired graphics focus mainly on the movie’s real stars: humongous spiders. The ”Aractionary” offers a crash course on the creeping crawlers, while an online game lets you hunt bugs with a virtual crossbow. And the message board is refreshingly hype-free. Sample posting: ”I bet Eight Legged Freaks will suck in comparison to Arachnophobia.” We’ll leave the evaluation of the movie to our reviewers, but give the site eight thumbs up.
