Arachnoquake is a 2012 made for television horror film that aired on Syfy.

Plot summary Edit

Giant albino spiders are released by earthquakes in New Orleans. The spiders are able to blast fire and venom from their mouth. It is up to humanity to stop them and their queen.

Reception Edit

A review from Starburst says, "Arachnoquake is too hilarious and good-natured to be offensive and, for SyFy, it’s a quantum leap in quality from last year’s dire Camel Spiders and is cautiously recommended for lovers of unpretentious throwaway big insect movies." Craig McGee, of Horror News, wrote, "The easiest way I can sway you into my way of thinking with this movie is if you didn’t enjoy the SyFy Original, CAMEL SPIDERS, from last year then you’re not going to go for this one either."

The spiders of Arachnoquake were featured in the book How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters.
