Hard to believe we’re due two giant spiders terrorizing a major city movies this year. Mega Spider will have to wait while Christa Campbell and Patrick Muldoon contend with giant spiders in a 3D movie from the director of The Gate.
Campbell (who also served as a producer on Texas Chainsaw 3D, so you know she’s having a good week regardless of what knuckleheads like myself thought of the film) stars as a New York City health inspector who pairs up with Starship Troopers brain suckee Patrick Muldoon to contend with mutant spiders ranging from five-foot to “Godzilla vs.” size spawned by the wreckage of a Soviet space station that crashes down onto the Big Apple.
Tibor Takacs, director of such fine horror offerings as The Gate, I, Madman, Mansquito, and Ice Spiders directs from a script by Joseph Farrugia.
Millennium Media is set to unleash Spiders on DVD and Blu-ray in 2D and on 3D Blu-ray March 12th. Full disc specs to come.
Kind of a pity most of us will have to settle for watching Spiders 3D on our TV screens rather than a big theatrical screen, but for those lucky few…
From the Press Release
Millennium Entertainment is planning a February 8, 2013, limited release of SPIDERS 3D. The theatrical cut will be rated PG-13 with a running time of 89 minutes, and SPIDERS will also be released the same day via VOD platforms nationwide in 2D.
Harkening back to the beloved creature features from the 50’s and the 60’s, SPIDERS 3D centers on mutant spiders created by pieces of material from a disabled Soviet space station that crash lands on Earth. With New York City threatened to be overrun by the gigantic killer spiders who have invaded the metropolitan subway system, it’s a race against time to stop the Queen Spider from uniting with her eggs before a deadly chain of events are triggered from the deadly reunion.
Directed by Tibor Takacs (The Gate, I, Madman), SPIDERS 3D stars Patrick Muldoon (Starship Troopers, Stigmata), Christa Campbell (Drive Angry, The Mechanic), William Hope (Aliens, Dark Shadows), Pete Lee Wilson (Blade II) Jon Mack (Saw VI) and Sydney Sweeney (The Ward).
Written by Joseph Farruggia and Tibor Takacs, SPIDERS 3D was produced by Boaz Davidson and Israel Ringel and executive produced by Avi Lerner, Danny Dimbort, Trevor Short and Lati Grobman.
