Movie Quote(s):
  • Mike: No one's going to believe me, cause I'm a kid, and they never listen to kid.
  • Larry: Dude did you piss your pants? Bret: Come on we got to go! We got to get out of here! They're coming! Randy: Looks like the only thing going is you dude!
  • Wade: What exactly is that? Deputy Pete: A spider, man!
  • Chris McCormick: Get back you eight-legged freaks!
  • Joshua's Parrot: I see dead people, I see dead people... Joshua: He like's that movie, dunno why...
Movie Trivia:
  • The title did not come from the script, the director or the studio. In one scene, actor David Arquette improvised the phrase "Eight Legged Freaks" and that became the title. The original title was "Arac Attack" (in many European countries the film was released under that title).
  • Inspired by the short film Larger Than Life (1997) from writer Ellory Elkayem.
  • When the mayor sees all the people running towards the mall, he says the line: "If you build it, they will come!". It's inspired by the line : "If you build it, he will come." from Field of Dreams (1989) starring Kevin Costner.
  • In the beginning of the movie at the spider farm, when it shows the jumping spiders feeding, Johnny says, "They call it an Arac-Attack." This is a reference to the original title of the movie.
  • When the town's people have fled into the mall, the mayor, Wade, asks the goofy sheriff's assistant Pete what the hell just attacked him. Pete answers: "A spider, man", swallowing the syllable 'a', making it an obvious reference to Spider-Man, Marvel's comic book superhero.
