Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

One of the best comedy horror movies ever

Classic 'horror' movie. What I like best about this movie is the lack of suspense. In any scene where you think someone might be eaten by a giant spider, they do get eaten in short order. It's fast paced with some great scenes.
