QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv -

Killer In­stinct, 8.30pm, Arena Arachno­phobes, beware. A wo­man is paral­ysed with fear when she wakes to find two gi­gan­tic fun­nel- web spi­ders crawl­ing on her face and bare shoul­der. But the spi­ders are just the be­gin­ning of her trou­bles, and ours, as there’s a spi­der­wield­ing killer on the loose. He puts the re­volt­ing things un­der his vic­tim’s doors and sics ’ em, Rex. Mean­while, de­tec­tive Jack Hale ( Johnny Mess­ner) is work­ing out hard in his home gym. He alone notes the sim­i­lar­i­ties in a se­ries of mur­ders of young women and leaps into his clothes to take on the world, with act­ing nearly as wooden as his chis­elled physique. Shorts on Screen, 12.05am, SBS Tonight’s shorts in­clude Dance Ma­nia Fan­tas­tic , about a young Ja­panese banker who can­not bear the shame of telling his fam­ily he has been fired, and Cool Wa­ter , in which a young cou­ple’s day at the beach is com­pli­cated by an un­in­vited third per­son.
