Make no mistake, this is a low budget movie, and with that in mind, you can almost imagine what to expect. However, as a fan of low budget, cheesy made-for-tv creature features, I went into this with pretty low expectations - and was pleasantly surprised.

A brief summary of the plot: The government have been conducting experiments in space, and happened upon a race of 'alien' spiders. Unfortunately, during routine experiments, the space station that was housing the titular creatures, falls from the sky and crashes into the New York Subway system. Eventually, the 'alien spiders' that were kept at bay in the weightlessness of space, begin to grow and multiply before terrorising the city. And that is it.

As plots go, it's by the numbers, nothing terribly taxing and is completely full of plot-holes. But that for me, is part of the appeal of these movies. But what we have here is a little bit special. For a start, the majority of the budget actually went on the special effects, so for once, you have something that's actually not too bad too look at. Especially when the gigantic spider as featured on the cover makes it's first appearance (although you will be waiting to towards the end of the movie before that beast is rampaging across the screen) - but believe me, it's a pay off worth waiting for.

Patrick Muldoon is pretty passable, playing the role of a Subway Control Operator, who initially investigates the mysterious death of one of his colleagues following a bizarre electrocution, which leads him to discover the mutant spiders, when in turn makes him a target to be chased by the government. Christa Campbell is his ex-wife, who quite frankly, is the only reason why you, if you really have to, turn off the movie.

Jason (Patrick Muldoon) works for the NYC subway. He becomes a key player when space spiders disrupt his system. His ex-wife Rachel (Christa Campbell) a proud graduate from the Kristen Stewart school of facial expressions, works for the city health department. Armed with their wits and a forklift they continue on their never ending quest to locate their daughter Em (Sydney Sweeney) battling the military and bullet proof spiders.

The true origin of the spiders is revealed 35 minutes into the film.

The special effects are low to mid grade CG. While there was always something going on, the film seemed hollow as if it needed another subplot of someone besides our lone family and the military. The dialouge lacked zing and the actors were simply collecting a paycheck. 3 stars is overrated for most people, but I love Christa Campbell's long hair.

Parental guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

I watched it with my partner, and even after downing a bottle of Brokers Gin, we still couldn't bare to watch it to the end. And I like spiders - A LOT. These aren't even spiders - they have mouths and teeth. Why do movies (yes, you Peter Jackson) keep giving spiders mouths and teeth?? They have fangs - FANGS!! tut.

Awful film, plus the 3D was pointless, you do get great depth in the opening scene with the asteroids collision, but after that it just went down hill, the acting is very poor and the mother spider just looked stupid, it didn't matter how many times it was hit with bullets, grenades, missiles, tanks ext ext it never got hurt, its as if it was bullet proof. This is a very poor film. I gave it two stars for the picture quality, plus the 3D outer card-slip you get with the Blu-ray edition is very nice.

I knew this wouldn't be the greatest film I've ever seen, but I liked the idea and gave it a go.

You can tell it's was shot on a low budget and the street secenes had been shot on a set, but I could think of a lot of worse ways to spend 90 minutes. The sets actually look pretty damb good!

In short a low budget action film which is polished for it's budget.

3 Stars is about right.
