4.0 out of 5 stars Never Look A Gift Spider in The PediPalps 27 Nov. 2002
By ThatUmbrellaGuy - Published on
Format: DVD
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. Their fun is quickly put to an end as they find their ship boarded, their heads and fists meeting in the most loving of manners before they are unceremoniously bagged in what appear to be some really spacious gunnysacks, their boat torched and annoying captain/bartender murdered in the process. Enter our two main, horribly naive, characters - one a bumbling male and the other a slightly more intuitive female - that stumble across the charred wreckage while kicking it in their overglorified sailboat, take some pictures of it in the process before finding themselves in the midst of a horrendous storm. Fearing that navigating might actually get them out of this mess, they start sending out SOS calls out frantically and then, through a manner of mishaps that prove that any idiot can get a boat and sail it, they manage to sink their vessel. As luck would have it, a sizable freight vessel is in the area and notices their rescue flares, picking them up from certain death and letting the esteemed Doctor Grbac (Richard Moll) check them out. Well, curiosity gets to our male lead and he has to prod around while on board, knowing that something is amiss because the boat, strangely enough, seems to be going around in circles (and ignoring his wife's calls of "who cares, they can be smuggling drugs for all I care" in the process). Well, after finding a room full of bodies in cold storage and evidence of some eight-legged horrors being bred in the sublevels of the boat, its up to the real brains - the heroine -to find out what's up and how to calm the nerve that her obviously ignorant husband has rubbed wrong.
Despite its flaws, there are some good effects in the movie, especially with the splattering births of the cute baby spiders. These, of course, look like sock-puppets when they crawl away, but laundry can be fearsome depending on how long its been away from the wash. Besides, there are also some really wonderful prosthetic effects showcased here as well, the kind my friends and I - with a vast amount of effort - made out of silly straws and then threw around in drunken fits, to go with the computer generated one that might keep someone with arachnophobia from laughing. So, why did I give it four stars? Because all of those elements combined into something not intentionally funny but really good, keeping me rolling for hours on end.

4.0 out of 5 stars THEY TOOK THE SEQ OUT OF SEQUEL 4 Jan. 2004
By Michael Butts - Published on
Format: DVD
Why didn't they just go ahead and name this Breeding Ground or something? It does not pick up where Spiders left off. It really has nothing to do with the original. So why do these movie makers try and "cash in" on a previous films success by fooling the viewer that it is a true sequel. Anyway, now that we've dealt with that, let's move on to this subpar sequel. First of all, Richard Moll (the only known actor) in this movie is worse than any of the less known performers. Makes one wish Vincent Price was still alive or they had the money to pay for someone like Christopher Lee. At any rate, he is so inane and ineffectual, one can't wait till he gets his just dessert!
Stephanie Niznik could easily pass for Susan Sullivan (Falcon Crest) daughter, and joins the countless females who finds the opportunity to strip down to her Sigourney Weaver t-shirt when it comes time to battle the monsters. It ticks me off that they're gearing away from male heroes, particularly when Niznik is so unsupportive of her husband when he was right. The film-makers then decided to make her husband (the dimpled Grant Cromer) look wimpish. Add Daniel Quinn as the oh-so-nice captain who wants to woo Niznik away from her seemingly demented husband, and what a remarkable cast of bad actors looking good. As for the effects, considering the budget, they were okay. Some shots looked good; others not so good.
But after all was done, I still had a good time. There was some tense moments and the ending pretty wild. (Kudos to the writers for not having the happy ending turn sour, and believe me, they could have.)
Anyway, Spiders 3 should bring back Josh Green and carry on with their storyline.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a direct sequel 28 April 2003
By Joshua Koppel - Published on
Format: DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's really not that terrible 5 Aug. 2004
By Jack C - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie doesn't have anything to do with the first Spiders, but that's okay with me. It's about a couple that are shipwrecked, and picked up by another ship. The husband is ill, and the ship's doctor is giving him drugs to, supposedly, cure him. He starts to suspect something odd is going on aboard the ship, but his wife won't believe him (because maybe he's hallucinating from the drugs you know). Basically, the captain of the ship is trying to woo her away from her husband. There is some good chemistry between the wife and the ship's captain, and I found that part of the movie to be pretty good. As far as the spiders, that whole plot line is almost an afterthought. About two thirds of the movie goes by without them even being involved. And the special effects aren't very special at all. They're pretty bad.

But, all in all, the plot kept me at least vaguely interested and the characters were really quite good. I'd watch it again if I was bored and there wasn't anything else on.
1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible 7 Dec. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
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!
