Okay, I went and saw the movie last night. I'll tell ya what, forget the flamethrowers. Give me bug spray. Those guys were blasting them with 12 gauge and had marginal effect, but when the main dude sprayed a little perfume in the queen spider's face, she nearly collapsed. A can of raid would've made her flop over and curl her legs up. (John Goodman with the twin tanks from Arachnaphobia would've ended the whole fight before it started) Kinda funny movie. They gave the big spiders the ability to vocalize. They sounded kinda like Magwai from the movie Gremlins. If I had to pick a conventional civilian accessible small arm, I'd be looking for that SPAS semi auto 12 ga with drum mags and alternate between 00 buck and slug rounds. For the bigger tarantulas, I'd want someone with a 50 bmg. Kinda like Tremors 2, where Michael Gross had to fight both the Gravoids and the Screamers. Two different firepower delivery requirements. Now that twin 50 cal turret mount that he had in Tremors 3 would be just the ticket. More than enough firepower to smoke all the nasties. They shoulda had the main characters get naked or something. It needed a little gratuitous sex to go with all the violence. I give it 2 1/2 stars. Exciting, but after the initial attack in town, it got kinda boring.
