CAMEL SPIDERS, the newest Roger Corman production, sees creativity taken to new extremes (as in, most of this is blatantly ripped off from other films) when an American Army Troop, in the middle of a gun fight in the Middle East accidently bring back a handful of deadly Camel Spiders in a coffin of a dead soldier (hang on didn’t that sorta happen in ARACHNOPHOBIA?). During transit across small town America – the coffin cracks open and the Spiders are set loose. Add in a healthy dose of EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS rip offs (these spiders make noises, come in various sizes and are a bit more vicious) and you’ve pretty much nailed the film.
The effects are gloriously cheap, the performances even cheaper and not one gun ever runs out of bullets. It’s so crappy I loved it though CAMEL SPIDERS doesn’t scale the flamboyantly silly heights of last years SHARKTOPUS. This is B grade at it’s very best and if you’re up for some total trash home entertainment – switch on to dumb ass and hire this puppy. It’s so stupid you’ll love it.
CAMEL SPIDERS is out now on BLU RAY, DVD and DOWNLOAD in AUSTRALIA
