Cheapus attempts exposure therapy to overcome his fear of spiders by watching Eight Legged Freaks, where spiders in a small town get exposed to toxic waste, grow to enormous size, and terrorize the locals, including David Arquette, Kari Wuhrer, and a 15 year old Scarlett Johansson.

“Nothing in the later episodes makes me want to retcon my original views. The series retained its early strengths and stuck to the landing.”Lucy (2014): Scarlett Johansson becomes God
“Only once is the idea even brought up that maybe the world ‘isn’t ready for this’, which is immediately shot down with a line that made me want to stand up and cheer: ‘Knowledge doesn’t cause chaos; ignorance does.’”How The Killing Joke ruined Batgirl
“Choosing such a horrifying image as a celebration is in incredibly poor taste. It comes across as a glorification of Batgirl’s humiliation and degradation.”The Island (2005)
I was always a little apprehensive about championing the cause of Clonus as being ripped off by The Island, because basically, I hadn't seen The Island. Anyone could look at the plot outlines and see the obvious resemblance, of course, but I could never really be sure. At least, not until now.
The Island is finally out on DVD, complete with a commentary track from Michael Bay. After watching the movie twice and listening to Bay's commentary, I'm more convinced than ever that The Island is directly based on Parts: The Clonus Horror. In fact, there are several details and plot points in The Island that make absolutely no sense except as an homage to Clonus. Her (2013)
“Almost all of the ‘falling for a robot/computer/AI’ movies up to this point date back to the ‘80s and ‘90s, and Her is a much needed upgrade to the concept.”The Prestige (2006)
“The Prestige is an interesting puzzle that’s complex while still being fun. Well, as ‘fun’ as a Christopher Nolan film can be, anyway. ”
