2.0 out of 5 stars Not a direct sequel April 28, 2003
Format:DVD
Although the first Spiders movie was quite good, this one lacks most of what made the first enjoyable.
There is no solid plotline, no interesting lead characters, no conspiracies, aliens, Men in Black, etc. All it really has going for it is seeing Bull, from TV's Night Court, as the villain.
A couple are rescued at sea by a large freighter. On board is a doctor who is conducting experiments on giant spiders. The couple figures out what is going on, realize they are intended as victims and accidently release all of the spiders.
In the original movie, the spiders were fearsome and nasty. Here they are almost backdrops. With the surface of the ship literally crawling with the beasts, they mostly just stand around and do nothing, not even chase their prey.
Stick with the first movie and avoid this thematic sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Never Look A Gift Spider in The PediPalps November 27, 2002
Format:DVD
First, it has to be said that this movie is lacking in a few crucial elements. It doesn't have that essential heavy-handed plot that most movies need, nor does it have a cast of stunning stars (although having Richard Moll in it was really fun) to make up for the lack of a plot, and it also lacks a budget to throw to any sorts of effects wizardry in to cover up the casting/plot problem. So, if you have to have these things to enjoy yourself, I'd suggest you turn away from this review now, shaking your head in disgust at the four stars I'm going to give it, asking yourself what on Earth would possess someone to give such a movie such high marks. For anyone who's left (i hope there's one or two) here's my answer.

Being a fan of movies that are a bit - lacking - in monetary constraints, I saw this as a real hit-or-miss picture that was spawned from another movie that wasn't received with opened arms. It also has to do with something I'm terribly fond of, that of giant insects and the efforts they go to while trying to establish some semblance of control on an otherwise mundane planet. In this movie the director take the idea that the first movie was hinged upon, that of experimentation leading to super-spiders, and leads it down darker alleyways as it mingles human hosts, flesh-feasts in oversized gladbags, lots of fangs, and boatnapping into the fray. Without trying to give too much of the move away and warning those who are interested in seeing this movie to basically rent it as a trial and skip this for fear of spoilers, the movie begins with people having fun, playing cards and drinking, on the high seas.

2.0 out of 5 stars Spiders 2: Mad Scientist Meets "Aliens" January 18, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
There is absolutely no connection between the original SPIDERS and SPIDERS 2, except for the inevitable big crawling and bouncing arachnids. Director Sam Firstenberg tries with middling success to meld the traditional Big Bug movies of the 50s with the claustrophobic feel of Sigourney Weaver battling the slimy Aliens of that series. The result is a mess that does not allow for either plot believability or character/audience involvement.
Stephanie Niznik is Alexandra, who, with her remarkably wimpy husband, is picked up out of the ocean by a sea captain (Daniel Quinn) and a mad scientist type (Richard Moll), both of whom are conducting experiments to combine spider with human DNA. Naturally, no explanation is given as to why this should inevitably lead to spiders growing as big as Buicks. SPIDERS 2 starts out more as a dramatic mystery that only hints at the existence of huge spiders. Alexandra's husband is less interesting than the Daniel Quinn character who takes a liking to her. Richard Moll gets to prance about waving his arms as he shouts out, "My experiments will revolutionize genetic science!" The second half bogs down into a scene by scene ripoff of ALIENS 2 and 3. Ms. Niznik battles both evil henchmen and mutated spiders, even as she wears the same T-shirt worn by Sigourney Weaver. The assorted spiders seem more disgusting than threatening. SPIDERS 2 would have been greatly improved had director Firstenberg tried for originality rather than variations on the tough broad in a T-shirt theme.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible December 7, 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Why did they make this movie? they completly ruined the first one. When the spider is crawling on the side of the ship you can tell the ship is a model and that the spider is just a normal spider. The deaths are boring. The actors are boring. The effects are so cheap. Why didn't they use the effects from the first one? In some scenes when the spider is running down a hallway you can tell its footage from the frist one. I was so glad when it was over. Do not buy or even rent this movie. I would give it o stars but it doesn't let you pick that. NOT RECOMMENDED! 0 STARS!

1.0 out of 5 stars if you liked the first one, don't plan to like this one!! September 29, 2002
Format:DVD
I knew when I saw that this movie didn't have ANY of the same actors in it that the first one did, it was probably pretty bad. "Spiders" at least had some charm and some good special effects, but since this "sequel" movie has unlikable characters and quite cartoony special effects, it's hard to get into or enjoy. It has absolutely nothing to do with the first one and Richard Moll stars in it. That should be all you need to know to stay away from this piece of dreck!!

There's nothing in this film to make it memorable. At the same time, however, it's not bad enough to be memorable either. Read more

This movie doesn't have anything to do with the first Spiders, but that's okay with me. It's about a couple that are shipwrecked, and picked up by another ship. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Really lousy
I haven't seen Spiders 1, so I can't compare it to its sequel, but for its sake I hope that the old saw about a sequel being worse than the original is true. Spiders 2 was awful. Read more
