Tagline: Science made Quentin a mutant. Nature made him a killer.
Plot: Nerdy security guard Quentin Kimmer (Devon Gummersall) dreams of becoming his favorite superhero, the Arachnid Avenger. He believes that he may have the chance to do just that when the lab that he guards is broken into, and he finds and injects himself with the spider serum being studied by scientists there. Unfortunately for him, he begins to mutate into a spider creature and becomes a danger to his city. EARTH VS. THE SPIDER first appeared on Cinemax as part of the CREATURE FEATURES series, which remakes several 1950s monster films from Samuel L. Arkoff's American International Pictures.

The plot is rather predictable and the story slows down in parts. ... A decent rent. Interesting story and nice effects. Could have had more horror elements though. 6/10
--FrighT MasteR (UHM)
Playing almost like a superhero movie this is an acceptable time that's watchable, entertaining and has above average effects. ... Too bad that the finale is pretty weak.
Sometimes a film is so BAD that it's entertaining...this was just plain boring.
