If you don't suffer arachnophobia, you may do soon!
Single mother Kara moves from New York to the quiet countryside with her two children for a job opportunity she can’t afford to turn down. She begins her work as a private nurse to an old man who’s an appraiser of rare antiquities with a secretive past. Things seem normal enough until a shady antique collector brings with him a mysterious relic of ancient origin as they soon discover the artefact contains more than just legends…inside waits a terrifying creature born of ancient darkness, pure fear and eight legs...
This skin crawling scarefest harkens back to the practical effects resplendent creature features of the 90's; and on top of that boasts a surprisingly emotional familial heartbeat to it that only the best Amblin films could. ITSY BITSY will have you screaming tarantulaaARRGHHH and tarantulawwww.
