Spiders make for an interesting topic for a horror film. A lot of people have a phobia about these creepy crawlies and of course it makes for engaging horror films. There have been a few good spider films in the past, most notably Eight Legged Freaks and Arachnophobia. Both were awesome and highly entertaining, and gave viewers new reasons to be afraid of spiders. Now with this picture, aptly titled Spiders, there is an interesting idea behind the plot. A space station crashes into New York City and it releases genetically enhanced spiders that grow and terrorizes the city. Although not a great film by any means, this is still a pretty decent film that is provides some mindless entertainment value. This is an underrated film that isn't too bad if you're in the right mood to enjoy. Spiders has an interesting idea and it pays off for the most part. However there could have been some improvements, especially in the acting and visual effects, but what can you expect from a low budget B movie monster flick? I didn't expect much from this movie, in fact I expected to hate it, but Spiders is a much better movie than many other horror films that has been released this year. Don't take this one too seriously, and you may like it. The film does have its flaws, but it provides some fun entertainment that is a pleasant time waster. This is mostly a movie for B movie fans and those who enjoy monster flicks that are over the top. The film could have benefitted from a script rewrite and a few changes in the cast; nonetheless it's enjoyable for what it is. If you love creature feature horror themed picture, you're sure to like this one.

The thought of running through big spider webs is terrifying enough. But the overall film is hilariously bad.

Mutant spiders that withstand gunfire and have the growth rate of a water balloon on the end of a fire hose. If that doesn't make you shit your pants, I don't know what will. The film itself was fair, with some pretty good effects for its budget, but I was too busy trying not to soil myself to give it my undivided attention. Gah!
