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.

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.

You can see the parallels between this movie & the Alien movies. People getting cocooned or webbed, sprouting of the spider monsters from a pregnated human in freezer compartments, a strong cental character of a woman who acts like she was trained by the Marines in mortal combat, and a slew of baddies behind & supportive of the creature's welfare and upbringing. So, aside from that you can almost know what to expect, but have a little fun getting there, although the spiders take a backseat to the melodramatic plot more than halfway into the film with just minor previews. My favorite scene is when Alex, the heroine, discovers the incubating pods in the lab & reluctantly witnesses the horrible process of birth of a spider from a convulsing spewing human female who is unconscious. Total Halloween prop at it's best, and if I was rich enough, I would have one made for my garage lab show exclusive. The rest is all special effects fodder, some work, some don't. I did like the incredible bond of the couple which showed it's true colors even at beginning of overboard dilemma. Spiders are always creepy.

Ok the first Spiders movie was fun and this one is great too. I actually really like the spider effects, it looks much less plastic than the one in the first. The story in this movie is quite intriguing. I hardly got bored, the actors played their role well. This movie would of gotten a higher mark if only the spiders were more in the movie, they are only in there for 25 mins and the movie goes for 90 mins. If the spiders were more fierce and had more screen time and more victims and isn't based on a ship, then this would of surpassed the original. Give it a chance, it's not that bad even though it is not a direct sequel.

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!

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

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.,
