- For those with arachnophobia, especially the scenes of all the bitten webbed-up victims.
- Real spiders were used and plenty of them died during the filming, so those who actually like arachnids may find this movie disheartening. And given that an Anvilicious Green Aesop about not needlessly killing certain animals was part of the film's "message", it also goes right into Broken Aesop territory as well.
- Arachnophobia or not, the final scene, where the entire town is encased in a web, is pretty horrifying. Not to mention pretty stupid for those members of the audience who know that tarantulas are hunting spiders, not web-spinners. However, Terry did say that it wouldn't end with tarantulas, and that other species of spider might get involved.
