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.
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.
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!

SPIDERS (Trimark) and ARACHNID (Lions Gate) are a perfect double creature feature. As you might guess big spiders dominate these two low budget flicks. Read morePublished on Sept. 11 2002 by Robin Simmons
