5.0 out of 5 stars TIME TRAVEL BACK TO THE FIFTIES November 24, 2003
Format:DVD
Gary Jones should be commended for his faithfulness to those wonderful giant bug movies of the fifties, like "Tarantula" and "Them." In this underappreciated thriller, Jones gives us animatronic spiders that look as real as one could expect, and delivers an action packed, delightful thriller. Of course, the plot has holes, and there are some ridiculous "how come so and so did this?" Like, for instance LANA PARRILLA, the savvy and Siguourney Weaverish heroine, has her glasses knocked off, crushed, and there is no mention of how this girl can see so well. Sure, JOSH GREEN has to have his shirt come off so we can see that buff bod. (How in the world does anyone get shoulders that wide???). But who cares? I enjoyed the ride, and the guilty pleasure of watching giant spiders running amock. There is some clever lines and I liked the innocence and naivete of the actors. Parilla starts out pretty obnoxious, and continues to be so, but by the time she joins forces with Green, she's a knockout. Green is also more than just a hunk of meat; his soft-spoken innocence and his easy swagger are endearing and refreshing in a day of "super macho" men. And just when you think the movie is over, the ending explodes and it's pure mayhem and excitement thereon.
I just loved this movie, because it was so much like those older gems, and it fulfilled those childhood fantasies of heroism and the good guy always wins!

4.0 out of 5 stars Giant Spiders and conspiracies April 28, 2003
Format:DVD
A very well thought out bugfest. While the title creatures are the original reason for watching this one, there is far more to the plot than rampaging arachnids.
A college newspaper reporter is convinced that aliens exist and that the government has been hiding the fact. But when she heads to a secret government facility that is supposedly abandoned, she finds far more than she was expecting.
First off, a shuttle that supposedly burned up on re-entry lands at the base. The crew are dead in horrendous ways. Then the Men in Black show up. They are obviously cruel and cold-blooded.
Trying to avoid discovery, she and her friends hide in a truck and find themselves far underground beneath the facility. There they discover aliens, Apollo missions that were never reported, and a project to mix alien DNA with that of spiders. Then things get really tense.
Fun, fast and with some true jump-out-of-your-0seat moments, this is an above average monster flick with excellent effects and a solid storyline.

2.0 out of 5 stars Horribly bad, but oh so funny! March 14, 2002
Format:DVD
My brother and I, when we get together, have a sort of twisted hobby: we rent the worst-looking movies we can find, just for the laughs they provide. Spiders did not disappoint! The funniest element of the movie is the dialogue of one of the sidekick characters, Jake -- almost every line contains a swear word, usually the F-word. When he's just about to bite the dust, he errupts in a burst of profanity: "F you guys, f this place, and f that f-ing spider!" At one point we started to keep track of the swearing, and ended up with a count of about one profanity per minute. We almost bust a gut laughing! Hilarious also is the set used to serve as the secret FBI outpost. It's quite obvious that the building is a high school. And how about this for lack of continuity: the heroine has her glasses knocked off in a scuffle, and the camera focuses in on them, broken, on the floor. But never is the issue raised of how she can see without them; she doesn't even mention them, and appears to have perfect vision without them. Maybe the director thought she needed to be spectacles-free for the obligatory wet tee shirt scene? To sum up, if you don't share our sense of humour, don't rent or buy this movie; you'll just be annoyed. I will admit, however, that compared to many other "critter" movies we've rented, the special effects are pretty good. Although the giant spiders have an odd, mechanical/marching gait that I found off-putting. Perhaps it's difficult to simulate the crawling movement of real spiders with digital animation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all February 27, 2001
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of b-movies, don't believe the terrible reviews that other people have given this movie. For a low-budget, direct-to-video cheapie, this movie boasts great effects...I mean, honestly, when the spider gets to be its largest size it looks more realistic than what it did when it was smaller. It's really amazing. The movie's storyline is fast-paced, interesting, and suspenseful. It's not so much a horror movie...more like an episode of the X-Files...70% sci-fi, 30% horror. There are many tense scenes, such as the elevator shaft sequence, but the producers knew they weren't taking themselves seriously (which is a good thing). Much better than other recently released animal/monster movies such as Octopus and Crocodile. Highly recommended for fans of the genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spiders February 16, 2001
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie has great special effects. The picture quality was very clear and the sound was great. The movie kind of brings back the 1950's horror flicks for me. Giant bugs and people running in the streets were the norm during the Atomic Age. I'm sure that the plot was standard, with government bad guys, who you love to hate, and a secret base etc., but I enjoyed it. If you like old style monster movies, I recommend seeing this sleeper.
