Spiders are among the most elegant of God's creatures, with their delicate, spindly legs and infinite patience. Contained in their tiny memories is the geometry for a million webs, and when you see a web wet with dew in the morning sunlight, you know there is order in the universe, because the spider has found it and didn't even know what it was looking for.

Arachnophobia is an intense and unreasonable fear of spiders and other arachnids such as scorpions.  Treatment is typically by exposure therapy , where the person is presented with pictures of spiders or the spiders themselves.
Arachnophobia achieves this in spades, mixing real spiders (Avondale breed) with model and magnet work, the effect achieved is nervy giggles coupled with creepy goose flesh putting in an appearance. The cast work hard to make it work. OK, Sands remains as wooden as he always is, but in this case his pompous bug professor calls for it.
Arachnophobia is known to be one of the top 10 worst phobias in the world, to be accurate it is the third worst phobia that people around the world suffer from. Over 30.5% of the entire population of the United States suffers from this intense fear, behind necrophobia (the fear of death) and glossophobia (the fear of public speaking).
