Product Description

From Executive Producer ROGER CORMAN Comes The Ultimate Crawling Terror! In the deserts of the Middle East, a platoon of soldiers is terrorized by a gang of large, fast and deadly arachnids called Camel Spiders. The soldiers escape the deadly attack but accidently transport several of the evil beasts with them to the American southwest. An Army Captain (Brian Krause of Charmed), a small-town Sheriff (C. Thomas Howell of Southland and The Amazing Spider-Man) and a desperate group of locals and tourists must survive a frightening infestation of crawling carnage. Diana Terranova (Get Him to the Greek), GiGi Erneta (Raptor) and Jon Mack (Mongolian Death Worm) co-star in this cult classic from director Jim Wynorski (Dinocroc vs. Supergator). Based on the actual creatures that have tormented the Armed Forces for decades, get ready for all the leaping, screeching, face-ripping horror of CAMEL SPIDERS!

2.0 out of 5 stars "JUST TWO WORDS: BIG SPIDERS" 13 Aug 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I enjoyed the opening credits of bright green coming at you while some action western music is playing. The opening scene has a lot of action. US forces are fighting against...Taliban? In Iraqistan or somewhere? One US soldier is killed. The enemy is carried off by BA spiders. The grasp of the spider causes one to shoot their guns aimlessly into the air instead of at the spider. A spider crawls into the mouth of the dead American soldier and makes it back to the US where through a number of plot continuity issues it is released into the Arizona desert. Do we really transport deceased soldiers in wooden crate boxes?

The spiders are about the size of a cat. No one steps on them or crushes them. They can outrun a human and leap 6 feet into the air. They are very aggressive and always attack people's head...or crotch in one case. There are a number of groups of people trapped by the spiders, who for some reason hunt humans as pack animals. The spiders appear to be CG as are the flames from the guns.

C. Thomas Howell plays the local sheriff and is not the main character. Brian Krause is the main character. The dialouge was unimaginative and boring as were the characters tossed at us.

Little girl: "Mom, are we going to die?"
Mom: "No we're not going to die. We are going to be just fine.
Little girl: "Well, then can you and daddy get back together?"

At one point we hear "Technically they are not spiders because they have six legs." If you count the legs: eight.
The film reminded me of that old fashion Roger Corman over the top bad scenes. 2 stars is generous. Might work as a rental for the early tween.

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Mild swearing, teens making out, rear urination scene, occasional blood squirt.

By Cartimand TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Cult director Jim Wynorski has given us some thoroughly entertaining B-movies over the years (like the utterly brilliant Deathstalker 2 [DVD] [1987] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] but, if you were expecting the usual tongue-in-cheek thrills and laughs, you are likely to be disappointed with Camel Spiders.

There are a few cheeky hat-tips to other creature-features along the way (Them and Arachnophobia spring immediately to mind) but, for most of the time, Camel Spiders takes itself a tad too seriously. Some moderate gore and a wince-making "now that's got to sting a bit" moment (chap taking a pee) are diluted by rather clunky CGI and some silly action.

On the plus side, image quality is very good for a DVD, the scenery looks great, 5.1 surround sound is used to good effect and legendary music guru Chuck Cirino Cinemusic: The Film Music Of Chuck Cirino has contributed a memorably foot-tapping score.

No extras on the DVD though - was hoping for a director's commentary and some outtakes at least.

If you're fond of B-movie creature features (and the cheesy tagline: "They really get under your skin" warns you what to expect), Camel Spiders is just about worth a look.
