Arachnia is a 2003 Direct-to-Video Sci-Fi Horror film.

A college professor and his students survive a plane crash caused by a meteor shower. However, these meteors awakened giant, ravenous spiders from prehistoric times. Our heroes mist team up with a local farmer to end the arachnid menace.

This film contains examples of:

  • Attack Its Weak Point: The spiders can only be injured in the eyes.
  • Bi the Way: Trina and Kelly indicate that they've slept with men right before they have sex.
  • Body Horror: The spiders lay their eggs in other organisms, and the hatchlings burst through the poor saps' bodies upon gestation.
  • Bury Your Gays: Surprisingly averted.
  • The End... Or Is It?: The spider nest is destroyed by the military, but a few babies are shown to have survived.
  • Giant Spider: The main antagonists are a nest of prehistoric spiders released by a meteor strike.
