FEARnet Movie Review: 'Spiders'

  • FEARnet
FEARnet Movie Review: 'Spiders'
You already know what you're in for if you sit down to watch a movie called, simply enough, Spiders. (Doubly so if the film happens to be also known as Spiders 3D.) You're going to get a plot that's been old hat since about 1958, a bunch of airy narrative wheel-spinning that exists mainly to stretch a few crazy spider sequences into a feature-length film, and (obviously) a bunch of spiders running amok and attaching themselves to all sorts of unfortunate people. In the case of Tibor Takacs' half-draggy and half enjoyably stupid Spiders 3D, you'll get all of that and more. Or less, depending on how you approach goofy monster movies about gigantic mutated spiders.

There's only so much charity one can afford to such a plainly low-shooting piece of B-movie silliness, but at its best moments Spiders (3D) does manage to evoke the mutated creatures flicks of the '50s and '60s.

Harkening back to the beloved creature features from the 50s and the 60s, Spiders centers on mutant spiders created by pieces of material from a disabled Soviet space station that crash lands on Earth. With New York City threatened to be overrun by the gigantic killer spiders who have invaded the metropolitan subway system, it's a race against time to stop the Queen Spider from uniting with her eggs before a deadly chain of events are triggered from the deadly reunion.

To celebrate the release of the film in theaters and on Premium VOD this Friday, February 8th, we caught up with stars of the movie Christa Campbell and Patrick Muldoon, as well as their director Tibor Tak&#225cs (The Gate), for a chat about this thrilling sci-fi monster movie.

Spiders 3D Soon Spinning Its Web on DVD, Blu-ray, and 3D Blu-ray; Limited Theatrical Run Announced

Hard to believe we’re due two giant spiders terrorizing a major city movies this year. Mega Spider will have to wait while Christa Campbell and Patrick Muldoon contend with giant spiders in a 3D movie from the director of The Gate.

Christa Campbell (who also served as a producer on Texas Chainsaw 3D, so you know she’s have a good week regardless of what knuckleheads like myself thought of the film) stars as a New York City health inspector who pairs up with Starship Troopers brain suckee Patrick Muldoon to contend with mutant spiders ranging from five-foot to “Godzilla vs.” size spawned by the wreckage of a Soviet space station that crashes down onto the Big Apple.

Tibor Tackas, director of such fine horror offerings as The Gate, I, Madman, Mansquito, and Ice Spiders directs from a script by Joseph Farrugia.

Spiders 3D [Nychff 2012]

Alright guys, I’ll level with you – I hate spiders. Everyone has that one creepy, crawly thing that grosses them out to no end, and the thought of a little fat fuzzy black arachnid scurrying by my toes gives me instantaneous chills. Just one of those things that isn’t for me, yeah? But don’t think I hide my eyes when they’re around or anything, as I love catching Eight Legged Freaks whenever it’s running on syndication, so I took Tibor TakácsSpiders 3D as a welcome festival opener.

A throwback to the B-Movie creature features of old, undoubtably having scientists meddle with something small, growing it to gargantuan sizes only to cause destruction? Sounds like a good time to me, especially since Tibor is a veteren of these types of flicks, such as Ice Spiders, Mega Snake, Kraken: Tentacles Of The Deep, Sabrina The Teenage Witch

Could Spiders 3D Be As Great As This New One-Sheet Hints?

Tibor Takács isn't typically known for crafting what could be considered as “great” films. Ice Spiders, Mega Snake, The Black Hole, Mansquito... we're not exactly discussing blockbuster magic here. However, there have been some recent rumblings of a potential theatrical release for Spiders 3D, and after spotting this brand new one-sheet for the flick, I'll confess my curiosity: the pic you're about to glimpse below looks downright bad ass. Spiders 3D still lacks an official release date, or any serious release details for that matter. What we do know is post-production is rumored to be reaching a close, and regardless of what the film does or doesn't offer, we'll likely be seeing it soon, on one platform or another.

This Spiders 3D One-Sheet is Epic

Tibor Takacs loves him some nature-run-amok action.  The man who gave us titles like Mega Snake, Rats, Mansquito and Ice Spiders (not to mention The Gate) is back with Spiders 3D.  

The flick is in post-production (so says the IMDb, but I swear I've been hearing about this damn movie forever and figured it was done by now) and we found a spiffy new one-sheet.  You can find a larger version after the jump.

Spiders 3D comes to us from Millennium Films, the company behind this week's release The Expendables 2 and the forthcoming The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D.  Maybe they'll squeak this one into theaters?

Following a crash of an old Soviet space station in New York City's subway tunnel, a new species of poisonous spiders is discovered. Inadvertently the spiders mutate to gigantic proportions and wreak havoc on the entire city.  

Patrick Muldoon, Christa Campbell, William Hope and Jon Mack star.

New Sdcc Poster Reveals Several Monsters From Frankenstein's Army!

For those following Dutch director Richard Raaphorst's twitter account, these are exciting times as he is starting to drop nuggets of information and designs from his upcoming WWII-based horror film "Frankenstein's Army". Back in March I visited the set and saw many a cool thing, most of which I wasn't allowed to share yet. But Richard's latest tweet shows a "propaganda" styled poster made for Sdcc, and despite it being devoid of detail it shows several interesting things. Three creatures and Karel Roden as Victor Frankenstein himself are on it. The "zombots" are called Crypt Monster, Protobot and Mosquito Man. Mosquito Man is the one on the top right, and although his overall design is still deliberately kept vague I'm happy his existence is confirmed...

Sand Sharks Prowl the Beaches on Us DVD This Summer

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water... Who needs water when a prehistoric species of sand-swimming sharks begins prowling the beach? Sand Sharks is poised to be the schlockbuster of the summer.

Corin Nemec (Mansquito) and Brooke Hogan (2-Headed Shark Attack) star in Mark Atkins’ horror comedy Sand Sharks, a movie that has “Syfy original movie” written all over it yet looks to be bypassing that channel altogether. Not sure why. Might have something to do with the movie being more comedy than horror; Syfy movie execs, by all accounts, have a weird thing about how their movies should never be intentionally funny.

Synopsis:

Jimmy Green, a prodigal party boy, is throwing the spring break festival of a lifetime on the island of White Sands. Little do the hundreds of teenage party-goers know, an underwater earthquake has cracked open a crater beneath the ocean’s surface.

Top 5 Bizarrely Hilarious Movie Monsters

 

We've been spoiled as of late with our monsters in cinema. The monsters look more realistic, the scares outweigh the laughs, and the acting... well, the acting still sucks by and large. I miss the heyday of cheesy monster movies (as I wasn't alive during it) and am awaiting the day when a big shot director decides to go old school and make another one if not as a homage to the forgotten art of terrible monsters.

This post is a homage to my 5 favorite bizarrely hilarious horrible monsters. Accompanied with clips and loads of nostalgia, it should serve as a treat to all you B-movie horror fans. Enjoy.

5. Trolls From Troll 2

I can't have a list like this and not tip a hat to one of the worst films of all time. If you haven't seen it, you need to. People telling you it's "that bad" does not do enough justice.

Man Becomes Part Mosquito in Sucker

MLive recently reported shooting for upcoming horror film Sucker is currently underway in Pontiac, Michigan. Produced by the Los Angeles-based company Big Screen Entertainment and directed by Michael Manasseri (Babysitter Wanted), the film will follow a man who becomes part mosquito after being exposed to years of radiation and a serum full of rare insect DNA. After the discovery of his wife’s adulterous ways, the Mosquito man seeks revenge and tries to win back the object of his affection. How? By sucking the blood of her assailants, of course!

“It’s a fun, tongue in cheek film about a man who suddenly becomes part mosquito,” said Producer Stephen Eckelberry, describing the plot. The Oakland Press was lucky enough to snag a video of Eckelberry and ask a few questions.

Robert Kurtzman’s Creature Corps. will be handling the FX; I can’t hope but help to see a gruesome

Quote the Rambo, Nevermore

Movies based on stories by Edgar Allan Poe are nothing new. Movies about the short life of the macabre writer are in shorter supply. One of Edgar Allan Poe's biggest fans is pushing to get a biopic about the famed writer into production. Because when you think Edgar Allan Poe you think... Sylvester Stallone?

Empire Online caught up with Sylvester Stallone to talk to him about his all-star action flick The Expendables opening next year, as well as the possible Death Wish remake he's considering starring in. One unexpected topic that came up was Stallone's passion to make a movie on the life and times on the writer of such classic horror tales and poems as "The Fall of the House of Usher", "The Tell-Tale Heart", "The Pit & the Pendulum", and "The Raven", just to name a few.

Stallone himself has no intention of saying "Yo, Poe!" Him starring

Slocum: An Open Letter To Matt Jordon

So readers, this week I wanted to do a column about Joss Whedon or how I hate vampires or something. But upon opening my inbox to hit the tiny compose button and send the finished column to Mike (owner/founder/editor/purveyor of fine wines), I saw an email titled, "Hi Jake!" I figured it was spam, but something about it didn't fit with me. I clicked and was met with something quite surprising. You see, some of you may remember a column I did a few months ago called, "To B or Not to B." and it was about B movies in general. There was a short section about the Mansquito himself, Matt Jordon. I read the e-mail from Mr. Jordon carefully about how the column being listed on his IMDb page was harmful and then replied that I would surely take down the harmful information on his IMDb page,

Mr. July: Corin Nemec

Corin Nemec: You might remember him from his more recent roles in the sci-fi horror movie Mansquito or his turn as mass murderer Richard Speck in The Chicago Massacre (or not); but you’ve probably been impressed by him as the sexy Jonas Quinn on the Sci-Fi Channel’s series Stargate: SG1. However, there may even be those of you who loved him first as Parker Lewis on the eaaaarly 1990’s TV series Parker Lewis Can’t Lose – in which Corin played Parker, sort of a cross between Ferris Bueller and Zack Morris from Saved By The Bell. Corin’s latest movie is Bundy: A Legacy of Evil, released by Barnholtz Entertainment and Lionsgate on DVD July 21, in which he tackles the role of serial killer Ted Bundy, renowned for his charm and good looks with which he lured dozens of women to a grisly death. Corin stopped by
