No matter what bug scientists say, spiders are scary. Between the sticky web, the eight creeping legs and the chance that they are poisonous, it’s hard to not be a bit afraid seeing one lurking in the shadows. Not all of them are Tarantulas, Black Widows or Brown Recluses. But even the “friendly” spiders look ominous dangling above your door way. Even if they aren’t scary to you, they’re scary to the insects that get caught in their webs. Itsy Bitsy delves in the fear of spiders by giving us a spider worth spooking us. The movie has Denise Crosby (Star Trek: The Next Generation). You might want to watch this movie with a rolled up newspaper or shoe nearby. Itsy Bitsy comes out on Blu-ray in October. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
“Fans of scary giant spider movies will want to check out this well-made creature feature with some impressively disturbing special effects.” Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times
“Itsy Bitsy handles its monstrous spider with terror-filled precision and gruesome effects that aim to instill arachnophobia in even the toughest of viewers. The movie warrants a watch based on the creature effects alone” Bloody Disgusting
