If you like these sort of giant critter movies, you'll like this one. "They" (you know who I'm talking about) inject alien DNA into a spider - it's quite funny because when the lead character Marcy finds out about the DNA experiment, she says "I knew it would be something like that". Yet, isn't it always! They get their hands on some alien DNA and the first thing they do with it is to start injecting it into everything, like funnel web spiders. Gosh, sounded like a good idea at the time! Our characters basically spend the rest of the movie fighting one spider after another - they get bigger every time. The spiders look exceptionally good due to the fact that they're real puppets - not CGI. There is some CGI in the movie, most notably a really fake looking explosion, but that only adds some B movie charm. The main attraction of this movie is definitely Marcy, who looks incredibly (...)fighting the giant spiders in her skin-tight tank top. Of course, they fall in a pool of water at one point. Yes this movie has it all! The characters are quite likable, and the action moves along fast enough to keep it interesting. The ending is just what you'd expect, with plenty of B movie cheesiness thrown in for good measure.
All in all, I'd definitely recommend this movie to fans of the genre. It's a real throwback to the '50 and '60s movies - show people screaming, cut to giant monster approaching, etc. Lots of fun. The DVD is great - sharp, clear picture quality, 5.1 Dolby surround sound, and there's a nice 20 minute "making of" featurette as well.

In the Big Bug movies of the 50s, the Big Bug was almost always the result of a mad scientist who was carrying on secret research. TARANTULA (1955) with John Agar is a prime example. The focus was on the mad scientist, the handsome hero, and the Big Bug. With modern day versions, an X-File ingredient has been added: the intervention of a government conspiracy that usually involves alien DNA. In SPIDERS, director Gary Jones updates the traditional havoc laden plot to suggest that the real monsters are neither the mad scientist nor the monster itself. In its place lies a shadowy government supersecret organization that seems staffed with rather unintelligent if not fanatic Men in Black types.
Lana Parilla is a college newspaper reporter who with two other nerdy computer geek companions breaks into a restricted government installation that houses a recently returned space exploration vessel that was used to expose spiders to hard radiation. Naturally, there is an accident that allows the spiders to attack the astronauts who manage to crash land their vessel. The plot is special effects driven as itsy-bitsy spiders somehow morph with deadly speed into huge bouncing arachnids. Ms. Parilla has the obligatory romance with yet another government agent who is the good guy in this one. It was probably too tempting for director Jones to resist having the evil leader of this shadowy government CIA type rogue act as the prototypical Mad Scientist. SPIDERS is the sort of movie in which the viewer is not supposed to notice its many logical gaffes and inconsistencies, such as how Ms. Parilla needs glasses at the start but manages to see quite well enough after they get smashed. The viewer is rather asked to sit back and hearken to an earlier more innocent generation in which the greatest threat came from the Big Bug, not from the government that tries to cover up the monster's existence. Unfortunately, John Agar was the last Handsome Hero who could stake claim to this.

Gary Jones should be commended for his faithfulness to those wonderful giant bug movies of the fifties, like "Tarantula" and "Them." In this underappreciated thriller, Jones gives us animatronic spiders that look as real as one could expect, and delivers an action packed, delightful thriller. Of course, the plot has holes, and there are some ridiculous "how come so and so did this?" Like, for instance LANA PARRILLA, the savvy and Siguourney Weaverish heroine, has her glasses knocked off, crushed, and there is no mention of how this girl can see so well. Sure, JOSH GREEN has to have his shirt come off so we can see that buff bod. (How in the world does anyone get shoulders that wide???). But who cares? I enjoyed the ride, and the guilty pleasure of watching giant spiders running amock. There is some clever lines and I liked the innocence and naivete of the actors. Parilla starts out pretty obnoxious, and continues to be so, but by the time she joins forces with Green, she's a knockout. Green is also more than just a hunk of meat; his soft-spoken innocence and his easy swagger are endearing and refreshing in a day of "super macho" men. And just when you think the movie is over, the ending explodes and it's pure mayhem and excitement thereon.
I just loved this movie, because it was so much like those older gems, and it fulfilled those childhood fantasies of heroism and the good guy always wins!

My brother and I, when we get together, have a sort of twisted hobby: we rent the worst-looking movies we can find, just for the laughs they provide. Spiders did not disappoint! The funniest element of the movie is the dialogue of one of the sidekick characters, Jake -- almost every line contains a swear word, usually the F-word. When he's just about to bite the dust, he errupts in a burst of profanity: "F you guys, f this place, and f that f-ing spider!" At one point we started to keep track of the swearing, and ended up with a count of about one profanity per minute. We almost bust a gut laughing! Hilarious also is the set used to serve as the secret FBI outpost. It's quite obvious that the building is a high school. And how about this for lack of continuity: the heroine has her glasses knocked off in a scuffle, and the camera focuses in on them, broken, on the floor. But never is the issue raised of how she can see without them; she doesn't even mention them, and appears to have perfect vision without them. Maybe the director thought she needed to be spectacles-free for the obligatory wet tee shirt scene? To sum up, if you don't share our sense of humour, don't rent or buy this movie; you'll just be annoyed. I will admit, however, that compared to many other "critter" movies we've rented, the special effects are pretty good. Although the giant spiders have an odd, mechanical/marching gait that I found off-putting. Perhaps it's difficult to simulate the crawling movement of real spiders with digital animation.
