Spiders [DVD] [2000]

Release Date:01/16/2001
Trimark's feature length B-movie about mutant spiders comes to DVD in an almost bare-bones edition. Spiders is an update of the old classic 1950s movies about nature gone amuck. Trimark has done a fine job with presenting a 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. The image quality is very good, featuring crisp colors and dark blacks. Audio for Spiders is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1. This is one of the better mixes on a low-budget title; the dialogue for Spiders is distortion-free, with well-mixed effects. Also included are Spanish and French language tracks. Unfortunately the disc features only one small supplement, a behind-the-scenes "making of" documentary on Spiders. This includes interviews with some of the principle cast and crew, including actress Lana Parrilla and director Gary B. Jones. This short feature is fun for one viewing, though that's about it.

    What has eight legs, a big appetite, and brings terror to a desert community in this sci-fi thriller? A group of astronauts are performing scientific experiments with a spider aboard a space shuttle when the craft is struck by a solar flare. This brings about an unexpected reaction in the spider -- the bug begins to grow, and it attacks and kills the crew on board. Marci (Lana Parrilla) is a student journalist with a more-than-academic interest in conspiracy theories and UFOs; she's digging around in the desert looking for evidence of alien aircraft landings when the shuttle crashes to Earth -- and a monstrous spider crawls out. Marci and her friends try to convince the citizens of the nearby town that they're in grave danger, but given Marci's habit of reporting strange stories of dubious credibility, most people are loath to believe her until it's too late. Spiders also stars Josh Greene, and Oliver Macready. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
