ugly & often turgid slasher. naturally i have watched it about a billion times.
pretty good gore effects.
90 grinding minutes of people talking about their feelings.
the woman in this film is awful.
& every moment of this feels staged & artificial.
there isn't a genuine human moment in it, & it climaxes with one of the most ridiculous, contrived scenes i believe i've ever seen.
i don't hate many movies. most are average, and they pass quickly in and out of my head. the special ones stick around. & the bad ones stick around for the unique ways they grind…
the only negative comments i have will be dispelled with first:
- i found some of the double-images seen in the background or foreground on occasion just a bit distracting, especially in the early going.
- i would have liked it if the other spider people, particularly noir, could have got just a touch more attention.
i'd heard in advance that this film was the best attempt yet at trying to bring the actual feel of a comic book to…
