In the close-ups of the spiders' faces it is possible at least sometimes to see they have eight eyes--which is the correct number for most species of spider--but the shots from the spiders' points of view are shown as either binocular or monocular vision (with no obvious reason for the discontinuity). Even with genetic manipulation to increase their size, the type of vision is not something that would change. See more »

This was one of the worst horror movies I've ever seen. No Olympic class skiers would ever ski at this resort. There wasn't hardly any snow left. The base of the slopes was just dirt. The blacktop in the parking lot was dry as a bone. The skiers were a joke. Any intermediate weekend skier could beat them. At first I thought the skiers were wearing a back-back, but I realized that was the "spider" special effect. This was not even funny either. "killer tomatoes" was ten times better. The DVD box had a couple of good reviews. I wonder what movie they saw. The good news was that it was only 86 minutes long. I was able to fast forward through it.
