Editorial Reviews

From Executive Producer
ROGER CORMAN
Comes The Ultimate Crawling Terror!

In the deserts of the Middle East, a platoon of soldiers is terrorized by a gang of large, fast and deadly arachnids called Camel Spiders. The soldiers escape the deadly attack but accidently transport several of the evil beasts with them to the American southwest. An Army Captain (Brian Krause of ''Charmed''), a small-town Sheriff (C. Thomas Howell of ''Southland'' and The Amazing Spider-Man), and a desperate group of locals and tourists must survive a frightening infestation of crawling carnage. Diana Terranova (Get Him to the Greek), GiGi Erneta (Raptor) and Jon Mack (Mongolian Death Worm) co-star in this cult classic from director Jay Andrews (Dinocroc vs. Supergator). Based on the actual creatures that have tormented the Armed Forces for decades, get ready for all the leaping, screeching, face-ripping horror of CAMEL SPIDERS!

I enjoyed the opening credits of bright green coming at you while some action western music is playing. The opening scene has a lot of action. US forces are fighting against...Taliban? In Iraqistan or somewhere? One US soldier is killed. The enemy is carried off by BA spiders. The grasp of the spider causes one to shoot their guns aimlessly into the air instead of at the spider. A spider crawls into the mouth of the dead American soldier and makes it back to the US where through a number of plot continuity issues it is released into the Arizona desert. Do we really transport deceased soldiers in wooden crate boxes?

The spiders are about the size of a cat. No one steps on them or crushes them. They can outrun a human and leap 6 feet into the air. They are very aggressive and always attack people's head...or crotch in one case. There are a number of groups of people trapped by the spiders, who for some reason hunt humans as pack animals. The spiders appear to be CG as are the flames from the guns.

C. Thomas Howell plays the local sheriff and is not the main character. Brian Krause is the main character. The dialouge was unimaginative and boring as were the characters tossed at us.

Little girl: "Mom, are we going to die?"
Mom: "No we're not going to die. We are going to be just fine.
Little girl: "Well, then can you and daddy get back together?"

At one point we hear "Technically they are not spiders because they have six legs." If you count the legs: eight.
The film reminded me of that old fashion Roger Corman over the top bad scenes. 2 stars is generous. Might work as a rental for the early tween.

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Mild swearing, teens making out, rear urination scene, occasional blood squirt.

I thought most of it was ok. But then there was parts that looked really fake. Like scenes of the spiders. And one time when The spiders were attacking one of the men, you could SEE him busting one of his blood packsd, so it looked like the blood was from the spiders. I kinda lose interest for a movie when alot of it looks fake. But if it wasn't for that, it would have been a really good movie. So if you don't pay attention to alot of the details, like I do. Then you will think it's a really good movie.

With the exception of Sharknado and Weekend at Bernie's 2, maybe the worst movie ever produced, but my son wanted it and he likes it.

Camel spiders was a pretty good movie as far as a creature feature is concerned, and I think Brian Kraus did another outstanding job with his role. The only thing that I didn't like about the movie was the special effects. The spiders was obviously CGI. The movie would have been a lot better if the computer graphics had been a bit more realistic. I still liked the movie and anyone that appreciates these type of movies will like it as well.

This movie creeped me out something fierce. There actually are Camel Spiders, and they may not look like these exactly, but there definately are similarties. They wouldn't have to have lethal venom, if I got one or two, or, OMG, more on me, I die of a heart attack before they bit me. Not everybody feels the same about spiders as I do, but watch the movie and see if it doesn't make you squirm just a little bit.

Everything you would want in a Roger Corman movie (except nudity). The Acting at parts is sub par and over acting is occasionally a problem. The Graphics aren't the most convicing either but I love these kinds of movies!!!

I would recommend this one to any Corman Fans out there!

Boy I really love Roger Corman’s films. Never did a Director do so much with so little. But Camel Spiders is bad even for a Corman film, even though he serves only as the Producer. Camel Spiders have become the stuff of urban legend over the past 20 years of wars in the Middle East. In truth they are not technically spiders despite the name but their large size have given them a near mythical reputation for terrifying the bejeezus out of people. But here the plot becomes so incredibly silly from the beginning and turns these hand-size bugs into the size of medium dogs.

The film begins in an unspecified desert in the Middle East (think Afghanistan) as American soldiers are in a firefight with enemy forces who again are unspecified but think Taliban. As the bullets fly the giant spiders crawl out of the ground to see what the commotion is and proceed to kill the enemy soldiers, dragging the bodies away leaving the Americans, and we the viewer, completely puzzled. The commanding officer Captain Sturges is wounded and earns a trip home, along with the body of a fellow soldier killed in action. But a handful of spiders hitch a ride home in the soldier’s coffin, ala Arachnophobia.

As the Captain and Sgt Shelly Underwood are transporting the body through the Arizona desert (which looks suspiciously like the Middle Eastern desert but one’s just like the other, right?) their truck crashes, spilling the coffin and its stowaways which have grown much larger. The soldiers are lead into town by Sheriff Beaumont (C. Thomas Howell). While having lunch at the local diner, the restaurant comes under attack by the spiders which have hulked up to the size of an average terrier. What’s more these things have a bite which instantly kills their prey.
