Put The Spiders Back On Ice...
By Amazon Customer
This is another one of those truly abysmal and why did it get made monster movies. This one involves spiders genetically mutated for research and military purposes that decide to have their human caretakers for snack and then decide the folk at a nearby ski lodge would make great desserts. The acting is bad and really overblown (though the owner of the ski lodge is actually intelligent and pretty likeable) and more the most part the characters are so annoying or leave so little impression that you just don't care about them. And the movie really makes no attempt to explain just how spiders are able to handle moving through snow and dealing with cold. There's more than a few plot holes bigger than the spiders in this one and there's no attempt to even make a token attempt to explain them. Those of you who've seen the much better 'Spiders' (about a spider on a space station that crashes back on earth), the ski instructor in this movie is the hero in 'Spiders'. If you've nothing better to do this one might be some way to waste an hour but overall, not worth watching.

“Most scientists play around with rats.”
What are the odds that a ski resort and a top SECRET lab would share the same snowy peak? AND! Even though there are clearly people in the area, two hunters are on the same mountain hunting big game when they fall prey to GIANT spiders. AND! At the same time a bus full of snotty-teen-skiers show up bemoaning the fact that they can’t get any cell phone reception on this mountain...........cue a cocooned hunter on the same mountain trying to answer his ringing cell phone. Of course there’s a conspiracy and secrecy and a shady lab guy who purposely messed with the DNA of spiders for his own nefarious purpose. His clueless colleague swears they were just trying to collect webs to use for the betterment of mankind! Naturally, theses GIANT spiders are smarter than everyone else and quickly escaped to eat everything they can get their legs on. It’s up to Dash (Patrick Muldoon) the almost Olympic skier to save everyone..............who hasn’t already been eaten.
I found this movie funny. I’m not certain it was meant to be a comedy. But I like movies about anything gigantic and on the rampage. Plus, the spiders were pretty colors, like Easter eggs.

Great Patrick Muldoon double-feature with the more-recent "SPIDERS". Both, highly, recommended!
By Michael Grösch-McCluskey
Light-hearted gore from "Dash" Dashiell, (Patrick Muldoon), a retired Olympic skier, that's at a ski resort to help train skiers; and kill ICE spiders.
Doctor April Sommers (Vanessa Williams), a scientist working at a nearby government lab, is the love-interest.
A slightly older Patrick Muldoon re-appears in the movie SPIDERS... in 2, and, 3-D.
