Island... check! Spiders... kind of check! Horror... not exactly! Deranged part-spider mostly man... definitely! Women running around in their underwear... almost the entire movie! Oh, and one dead professor. This is surely one of the lowest of the B-raters and the MST3K crew do it the proper justice.

The MST3K gang never fails to amuse me and they came thru again in the Horrors of Spider Island. Some of the comments were very esoteric (only a few people will get them but then, that just makes them funnier when you do) and some were totally in keeping with pop culture. If you're looking for a laugh, then this is for you.

As MST3k is sort of a show within a show within a movie concept, I think it is better to look at the individual parts of the episode as a bad part can ruin the entire experience.

The Movie: Ok the movie is called "Horrors of Spider Island" and yes there are people being killed by a spider humanoid beast. But the survivors that land on this island are a group of dancers on their way to Singapore. Do these girls let finding a dead person in a huge spider web get in the way of fun? Heck no! Nothing offsets losing friend after friend to a spider beast better than constant bikini changes and making out with strange guys. So yes despite the "horror" in the name, most of this movie is probably the 1960's version of late night Cinemax (except with better production values).

Host Segments: All of the segments are amusing not so much for the content but for the fact that each characters plays off each other. This is one of the later episodes so instead of invention exchanges and such, the characters now seem to just riff off of each other.

Riffs: Nearly nude girls - constant bikini changes - cat fights. Of course Mike and the bots are going to bring their "A" game. The riffs are funny and do continue almost until the end.

Overall: Even the bots start to tire of the constant bikini changes and it would have been nice to have the spider monster on screen for more than five minutes (or actually HAVE a spider monster). Still this is one of the better outings and while maybe not a top 10 episode, I would give this episode 4 ˝ stars.

This movie was so full of lolz. I didn't die of fright but from laughter...movie was horrible one of the worst I've seen, but the commentary was so funny. Never really watched mystery science theater before but now I'm definitely a fan...will watch more for sure.

HORRORS OF SPIDER ISLAND, is a completely ridiculous "film" about a group of bubble-headed dancing girls on a deserted island, it's also essential viewing for the MST3K fanatic. Mike and the bot-sters are at the peak of their lampooning powers w/ this one. Their rapid-fire repartee is unmatched here. No real lulls, just one hilarious comment after another! The skits are fun too. So, steel your nerves, and prepare for the bikini-babe onslaught of doom! Watch immediately!...

Besides the silly monster in this movie, this id a very sexy movie. There are a lot ladies wearing torn clothing and stretching out on a jungle island. The riffs are golden. I've seen this episode over a dozen times and it's still funny. Interesting note, this movie was originally filmed in German and redubbed in English, which explains a lot of the strange dialogue.

If you can call it that. In a shorter "less raunchy" version of a German showgirl movie, Horrors of Spider Island is more cat fight than Spider action. Classic riffing on a movie that makes no sense, but with show girls! Watch Tom Servo and Crow NOT HANDLE IT AT ALL. Very funny. Watch it.

No really, five stars! One of the best ever. Speechless really. Not a lot of spiders...but a lot of half to quarter naked women screaming and frolicking and falling down in heels.
