Editorial Reviews

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars WHERE'S SPIDER SABICH? October 31, 2007
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars "The Phone's Dead....This Is Totally Not Cool." November 11, 2008
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".

3.0 out of 5 stars Cover is decieving February 18, 2008
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars It has the right ingredients.... December 6, 2007
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A decent giant bug movie March 30, 2008
Format:DVD
I actually wasted money renting this instead of watching it on the SciFi channel on Saturday night which, around my house, has become Bad SciFi Movie Night. The spiders are obviously CGI and occasionally appear to be from a different movie. Most of the actors are unknowns and this movie won't be aiding them in their efforts to get noticed by Spielberg. The recycled plot is that scientists have been studying spider silk (stronger than steel and flexible) and, for some reason, one scientist genetically engineered the spiders, which grew larger and larger and then escaped.

I like scifi when it's big and dumb (hey, I watched MST3K for nearly 10 years) but, honesly, I've seen better giant spider movies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ice spiders June 19, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Giant spider movie? what is more creepy? This version is a made for SCI-FI Channel production so i guess you know what your gonna get. this movie would have been better if the siders were as big as the box art but alas they were only a fraction of that size. This is your typical goverment project developes big spiders for secret project gone wrong tale. it has it's momments and ultimately it's not horrible just not very original or for that matter scary, famous Producer Steven J Cannell ( The Rockford Files ...NBC ect..) even has a bit role in this! Attactive young cast but spiders are just goofy CGI, I love bug monster movies but this is just average PG stuff.

2.0 out of 5 stars Spiders and spice and everything ice August 10, 2010
Format:DVD
It's probably my gamer roots, but when I think of ice spiders, I think of 1) giant spiders made of ice, 2) giant spiders that shoot ice instead of webbing, or 3) a synchronized ice-skating team made of spiders. Ice Spiders contains none of these.

No, Ice Spiders is exactly what it says on the tin: spiders that happen to be in an icy climate, a ski lodge, to be precise. This is like calling Jaws "Wet Shark" and Predator "Swampy Alien." The title's technically accurate, but it seems a bit lazy. And that pretty much sums up Ice Spiders.

Once it became clear that there are no actual spiders made of ice, shoot ice from their rear ends, or are otherwise ice-like, then one can only turn to the ski lodge itself. I'm a simple man with simple tastes. If giant monsters are going to terrorize people at a ski resort, I expect the following set pieces, in no particular order: a fight on a ski lift, a guy snowboarding away from a pursuing spider, and an avalanche. Ice Spiders delivers on two of the three.

What Ice Spiders does not deliver is a coherent plot, good acting, or realistic spiders. Realistic, of course, being a figurative term since the spiders are dog-sized, survive in the frigid temperatures, and seem hell-bent on eating people. The CGI is almost uniformly bad. Vanessa A. Williams - not THAT Vanessa Williams, the other one -- is unbelievable as Dr. April Summers, but Patrick Muldoon as Dan "Dash" Dashiell is worse. Muldoon is Keanu Reeves-lite: He talks like a Valley guy and mumbles his way through his lines.
