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.
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.Read more ›
One different thing though is that it takes place on a boat on which scientists are conducting some manner of experiments, resulting in title creatures. The heroes are a couple who end up on this boat because... I don't remember...
This does present one problem though. Aside from the leads, everyone else is a "bad guy", so... it doesn't take a lot of imagination to figure out how things work out in the end.,

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 morePublished on August 5, 2004 by Jack C
