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.
The story is bog-standard killer bug fare. Alien spider lands on earth, mutates, escapes and attacks small US town. Only brave reporters can track the oversized arachnid down and put a stop to it's unearthly bloodlust. Throw in corrupt government officials, hunky guy for the heroine to fall in love with and some truly awful dialogue, and viola! You have instant straight-to-video rubbish. The effects by KNB are great, and only they hold any passing interest for the viewer (however, the spider does look rather silly when he is small, and only becomes impressive when it begins to grow). Anyway, even the greatest effects in the world aren't going to save this turkey, so please for the love of god, don't be like me. Don't get tempted by the thought of a giant spider chowing down on innocent teen folk. Read this review and run, run like you've never run before from awful movies like this!
Now, fast forward months later: Can you believe this? I just went down to my local video store and what did I see? SPIDERS 2, that's what. Why have they made this? Who greenlit this? And, why do I wanna see it? Have I not read my own review? On no, please not again . . .
"Spiders" opens with a top secret mission in which a space shuttle crew combines alien DNA with that of a tarantula. Needless to say, the resulting mutation arrives back on earth and soon begins wreaking havoc within a top secret base. However, the instillation is not SO terribly top secret that a small band of college students, led by plucky Lana Parrilla as the film's heroine, can't infiltrate the building (while hunting down a story for the college paper, no less). The result is a movie drenched in blood and gore, filled with endless chase scenes, and offering some of the worst special effects in recent memory.
The script is laughably bad and features both quintessential characters and tired plot devices lifted from other horror and action films. There's the duplicitous U.S.Read more ›
