Product Description

When a young ski team training for the Olympics arrives at the remote and isolated Lost Mountain Ski Resort to focus on training, they're thrilled to find "Dash" Dashiell, (Patrick Muldoon), a retired Olympic skier, is there to help them train. But their plans are halted when Dr. April Sommers (Vanessa Williams), a scientist working at a nearby government lab, arrives with an emergency: giant spiders bred at the lab have escaped, and they're killing and eating everything in sight! It's up to Dash, Dr. Sommers and resort owner Frank (Stephen J. Cannell) to stop the spiders.

I love 'so bad it's good' movies, and this one did not disappoint! I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it yet. Hilarious!

HASH(0xa1ef2cf0) out of 5 stars WHERE'S SPIDER SABICH? Oct. 31 2007
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This Sci-Fi Channel flick has all the necessary ingredients for a cheesy B movie and utilizes them to the fullest:
*adequate if non-imaginative fx
*bad acting
*somewhat ridiculous script
*dumb people doing dumb things, and last but not least:
*writer/producer/actor Stephen J. Cannell.
ICE SPIDERS doesn't set any new standars for giant bug flix, but it's tale of genetically altered arachnids should please giant bug auteurs.

HASH(0xa2389c18) out of 5 stars "The Phone's Dead....This Is Totally Not Cool." Nov. 11 2008
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"Ice Spiders" is about giant government-spawned spiders versus the most annoying ski team in history. Essentially there's an evil government program to genetically engineer giant spiders for military purposes. You see, the government got a prehistoric arachnid from Afghanistan and spliced it with modern spiders to obtain their silk, which is bulletproof.

Vanessa Williams is Dr. April Sommers, a big-league expert on arachnid genetics, and is ignorant of the sinister overtones of the work at the lab. The male protagonist is Patrick Muldoon as Dan "Dash" Dashiell, a formerly great skier and now a has-been teaching a bunch of sniveling, elitist high school age skiers in preparation for the Olympics.

To say that Williams can't pull off the role of a brilliant scientist is a huge understatement, but she and Muldoon are actually the most likeable cast members. I was so ready for the spiders to eat all the teenagers, that every minute they were onscreen and uneaten was more and more agonizing (and made even more so by extremely "cool" dialogue like "that was some nice carvin' by you, man", and frequent use of words like "gnarly").

The box art is not representative of the film. The box shows gigantic spiders the size of an airplane hangar, but in the film the spiders are about the size of a golden retriever. The spiders are very poorly executed CGI and are about as realistic and scary of a science fiction creature as "Alf". The writing and acting are very amateurish, and the film is full of ridiculous situations that take away from the film. My favorite scene involves a school bus full of teenagers: it's completely ludicrous, yet entertaining. (The same theme was done much more skillfully with angry ravens in "Kaw".) Sadly some of the teens do survive the arachnid holocaust: hopefully, though, they will never be in another film.

I gave the film two stars, which is generous, because in spite of the cast, the film was sometimes quite entertaining, although in a way I suspect that the producers didn't intend. If you like "Mystery Science Theater 3000", you'll immediately see what I mean.

HASH(0xa20fc264) out of 5 stars Cover is decieving Feb. 18 2008
By Bakuryuu Tyranno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The first thing that comes to mind with this movie is that gigantic spiders like the ones on the cover do not appear. The spiders are, obviously, gigantic by spider standards but they are smaller than humans.

A few things happen when people begin to encounter the spiders and something is usually happening in terms of plot. It's not the repetitive "monster(s) appear, someone dies/disappears, monster(s) vanish, survivors have no idea what happened, repeat" formula seen in a lot of other movies.

I found it reasonably entertaining despite the inaccuracy of the front cover.

HASH(0xa1d083f0) out of 5 stars It has the right ingredients.... Dec 6 2007
By Andre Villemaire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie rides above bad movies, but barely. We have great spider effects, and lots of blood, we have the outdoors, some good skiing scenes.
The script was decent. I rated this one above Roger Cormans movies. The
trouble is the casting...Must be a crappy casting company to come up with
some crappy actors that eventually brings the movie down. Especially near the end of the movie. Dont get me wrong..there was some good acting though. Good acting would make problems more transparent.
So, yes its really worth a viewing, especially for the spiders and skiing.

HASH(0xa1ce9a14) out of 5 stars Snooze Alert. You Can Skip This Without Losing A Thing... March 7 2011
By Nathan T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
About 10 minutes in I was debating whether to keep watching and 15-20 minute in, I was this close to trashing it right there and then *shows the distance between index and thumb*.

The sole purpose of watching these kind of movies is because I'm curious when it comes to weird creatures and I'd like an interesting story to go along with it. Watching this movie is boring because the spiders are nothing new and the story and plot is nothing worth noting.

Plot and POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!

Large Killer Spiders....Bunch of Lame Brains Which Includes A Small Class of Kids That Use Words Like *Totally* and *Awesome*....Government Conspiracy with Mad Scientists for Profit....Death and Gore.

From the title "Ice Spiders" I actually thought the spiders were made out of ice and therefore thought it would be interesting to watch. HOWEVER, they're just your typical spiders blown up. It was just boring, there was no real humor to back it up nor an interesting UNIQUE storyline or twist to keep me awake. It was just a lame movie about people getting attacked by large spiders. There was no suspense, not much of a thrill, and my first purpose of why I watch movies like this totally dashed and trashed.

I don't care that this movie was a low budget movie or whatever it is, they could have easily made it up with an interesting story. This is what happens when things are created by people that have little or no motivation towards what they're doing. Settling on mediocrity will be the doom of us all, hence me not going to watch a movie in the theater for over 4 years now.

Like the others have said, it's filled with your typical B movie flaws such as bad acting, casting, corny lines, and cliche to the death. It had a really lame happy ending where all the survivors walk off in a happy, carefree mood, totally forgetting that they lost most of their friends and the people at the ski resort. Like "oh yeah we survive lets go on a date and plan our next trips now".
