Here's a New Horizons TV movie that Roger Corman was the executive producer. Seems strange, but, here you go... The story's based on actual creatures that have tormented US troops in the Middle East. The voracious spiders have now invaded the southwestern deserts of the US. The Camel Spiders roam freely as they hunt for prey, unafraid of anything, including man. No place is safe and no one is beyond their paralyzing attack!
Eegah!! and I loved insects and spiders, we had a 1" version of this species in our area, and I'm telling you, it was terrifying to watch them feed on other insects!.. SERIOUSLY.
This one stars Brian (SLEEPWALKERS) Krause, C. (MAD DOGS AND ENGLISHMEN) Thomas Howell, Melissa (MUNCHIE STRIKES BACK) Brasselle, Frankie (TOMB OF THE WEREWOLF) Cullen and Hayley (RAPTOR) Sanchez.
Over in the Middle East, our troopers are fighting the enemy, and, there are US casualties. Those get boxed up and sent back to the states...
Unfortunately, back in the states, a troop transport carrying the caskets gets in a wreck, causing a crack to open. A pile of Camel Spiders dart out into the desert. They had laid eggs in the bodies... The timeline seems whack, but, whatever.
The damn things are huge, and fast!! The CGI looked great throughout the movie.
Okay, the teacher there, out learning his students all about nature and stuff, well, he's stupid enough to walk over to one of them to say hi...
After all Hell breaks loose, a small group of people make it to a military facility, where, the people in charge there try to figure out their next move.
How would you like to try and identify a charging Camel Spider in that light?
Dude's car stalls, so, he opens the hood... (I would have never imagined that just having a varmint sitting there would make a car stall!) Anyway, the guy closes the hood just a little too late, you get the picture.
These guys seem to have an endless supply of rounds in their rifles, and, they mow down all of the attacking monsters in their tracks.
But, they're coming out of the freakin' building now. They call in the jets and the missiles do their thing, blowing the Hellish Spiders to smithereens!
Great job private, now, gimme 50 push ups for losing your hat!
So, everything's perfect now... Wait a minute, this is a Corman flick, actually, something's quite wrong at this drive-in theater...
That's right, the spiders ain't goin' away any time soon. In THE TINGLER style, we see the little monsters on the screen... Join us tomorrow when we return with more cool junk 4 U.
