Some of us cannot handle a spider being presented in front of us in real life, but who doesn’t appreciate a good creepy crawly creature feature?
I certainly do, and I have been wanting to talk about “Itsy Bitsy” since I could preorder it on Amazon. It’s a great way to avoid harming the real deal while being entertained by unrealistic versions.
Bonus deal for you, if you’re interested in checking out “Itsy Bitsy” before reading my thoughts, it is available on Amazon Prime for free if you are a Prime Member! No need to wait for a dvd to show up in the mail like I had to. 😉
Now let’s move on to my thoughts regarding this anticipated spider flick!
Itsy Bitsy lives up to delivering a lurking spider goddess that’s never quite fully revealed until the climax, making you feel pretty on edge anticipating when it’s going to actually going to pop out and get the characters.
The spider effects were really cool, completely delivering on a jumbo spider you think you might run into when finding yourself wandering your home by your lonesome in the middle of the night. I do have a very deep appreciation for practical effects over CGI so my opinion on that always tends to come out a little biased.
As for the spider herself, she’s supposed to be an ancient goddess that was being worshiped and contained in this black egg artifact, but her killing spree motivation left me with more questions than answers. At least considering the fact that they set her up as this goddess being, but her attacks feel far more animalistic and random then vengeful goddess spider.
I had a lot of questions. And really wasn’t crazy for a majority of the characters. Personally, I just found it challenging to connect with them and their personal demons and in the end, rooted for those particular individuals ends at the mercy of the spider.
I would recommend giving Itsy Bitsy a go if you enjoy a good creepy spider flick that leaves you unsure of where she is hiding or when she’ll strike. I won’t claim it will become a favorite after first watching, but it definitely delivers a unique setup and an intense environment.
