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!

***SPOILER ALERT***
There’s just something about panicking crowds fleeing a several storey tall giant mutant spider that makes me chuckle appreciatively.
The title of “Spiders” is a bit of a misnomer though, “Spider” (singular instead of plural) would be more apt – but that is already the title of an arty David Cronenberg movie starring one of the Fiennes brothers (I forgot which one). We never really get to see more than one spider at a time unfortunately – think “Eight Legged Freaks” but with severe budget cuts and you’ll know what I mean.
The spider in question is aptly named ‘Mother-in-Law’ (ho, ho) and is the product of NASA injecting alien DNA into a tarantula spider. (Now you Yanks know where your tax money is going to . . .) All of this is done in the weightlessness of space aboard the space shuttle, Solaris.
Oh, I should have told you: “Spiders” is filled with unexpected movie in-jokes and humor, which is sort of nice since its makers obviously knew that they were making a silly creature feature B-movie and decided to have some fun with it all. Along the way we have aliens from Alpha Centauri with New Jersey accents, the truth about the ultimate fate of Jim Morrison and John F. Kennedy and even lines stolen from other movies
The space shuttle Solaris is however struck by a solar flare (oh, the irony!) and Mother-in-Law escapes, and promptly starts killing off the astronauts. Solaris loses control and has to make an emergency crash landing at a top secret Area 51-like facility imaginatively called Area 21.
Having no doubt seen “Capricorn One”, NASA however tells the public that the shuttle has burned up in Earth’s atmosphere.

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.

If The X-Files had a love child with the Aliens movie franchise, then raised it to be a B movie ... this is what you'd get. At one point, one of the characters even says "this is like a bad Sci-Fi movie," which had me laughing out loud and ... yep! Really bad. That's why it's sooo good. Go into this one knowing it's awful and you won't be disappointed.

It is that bad, so for me to give this movie five stars is pretty remarkable considering I loathe spiders, and am no great fan of horror. The scariest part of this movie (for me, anyway) was near the start when real tarantulas were wandering around and climbing on some of the actors. Eeek! Once the monster spiders got bigger, they weren't as frightening, then they were just funny. So, why the five stars? Mainly because the rest of the movie spent some quality time poking fun at itself and other movies of this genre (scary, mutant creatures menacing the earth, like from the 1950s--in fact, I think they threw some radiation in, just for the fun of it). Believe it or not, this arachnophobic monster mash works really well as schlock comedy.

Fun parts include (*mild spoilers included below*):

1) Marci's transformation. Near the beginning something happened that made me think, "she's going to end up carrying a bazooka before this is over" and sure enough..... As the story unwinds, Marci loses her glasses (real ones, btw, which I actually appreciate although I did spend the rest of the movie wondering how she could see!). Next she ditches her jacket, then her sensible button-down shirt. By the end she's Sigourney Weaver's Ripley and you almost believe it.
