Spiders 3D Movie Review

Spiders 3D is a 2013 horror movie directed by Tibor Takacs and starring Patrick Muldoon , Christa Campbell and William Hope.

Something is happening in New York city. An unidentified object drops out of the sky and crashes into a subway station. A guy walks in there and he sees a creature that looks like a spider. He gets bitten and he dies. Jason Cole(Muldoon) is a supervisor in the subway and he goes down there to find out what is going on. There is a Doctor Darnoff(Pete Lee-Wilson) there too. The NYC Department of Health isn't happy about it. Jason goes to see the coroner about the dead man and she just happens to be his ex wife, Rachel(Campbell). She shows him the bite and she says that there were eggs inside his body. She keeps them in a container. Jason discovers that there are rats all over the subway tunnel. An exterminator arrives. Bodies are found with eggs inside them. A man gets killed by loads of spiders. They are on the loose!

People arrive to sort out the mess. There are men in special suits who capture some of the spiders to study them. They tell people that it is some virus and they bring the eggs to Dr. Darnoff who looks at them and says that the queen egg was inserted into the first body. He goes on to say that the spiders were an experiment gone wrong in Russia and the spiders were injected with some alien genes(yes!) and that was how they got so huge and dangerous. A Colonel Jenkins(Hope) is there also and he wants this over with. He wants to kill the people that they have quarantined. Dr. Darnoff says that they need to find the queen egg as it is not there. Rachel has it. Two guys attack her and take it from her.

Rachel and Jason's daughter Emily is quarantined in her home and Jason wants to get to her and rescue her. He meets Rachel and they both go to the apartment to get their daughter. Dr. Darnoff tells Jenkins that the queen spider weaves webbing that is bulletproof and very valuable to any nation.
Jenkins wants Rachel and Jason. He is working with the Russians. Jason and Rachel go down to the subway station and walk along the tracks. The spiders have taken over and they are climbing up buildings. One chases Rachel and Jason. Rachel gets caught in a web. Jason has to distract it and he kills it and releases his ex wife. They get to the apartment and look for their daughter. Colonel Jenkins is on the lookout for the queen spider. He wants it captured and under his control. The army guys try to fight the oncoming spiders and fail. The queen comes. She eats the doctor. The army try and take her out. She is too big.

She wanders the street. She is looking for her nest. She goes back to the subway. Emily is down there. The queen tries to get her, but her parents rescue her. Jason ends up facing off with the queen arachnid. He leads her down the tracks and he jumps into a train and drives it into her and some gas pipes which come in so handy!! The whole place explodes and the queen is blown to smithereens. Rachel, Jason and Emily are okay. The dead arachnids are taken away. Unfortunately, there is one spider left alive......

This film was fun. It was the usual monster spider movie, but there is nothing wrong with it. I liked Patrick Muldoon in the lead. The spiders were big and of course, the queen was a monster! I don't like spiders, but you have to just laugh when you see them that big! I found this an entertaining film which I would certainly recommend as I enjoyed it. You know what you are getting here and it doesn't disappoint. I will give it a 5/10.

Zombi 2 Movie Review

Zombi 2 is a 1979 horror movie directed by Lucio Fulci and starring Tisa Farrow, Ian McCulloch and Al Cliver.

The movie begins with a boat floating in the harbour in New York. There is nobody on it. The police come to see what is going on as do the Harbour Patrol. They call out but there is no answer. They board the boat and they find that it is a mess. They discover worms and a putrefied hand as well as a zombie who kills a cop. It is shot by another cop and it falls into the river. A journalist, Peter West(McCulloch) is going to investigate what is happening. A woman, Anne Bowles(Farrow) is called in to identify the boat, which belonged to her father. She says that she hasn't seen him in three months. She is worried about him. She and Peter decide to go to the Caribbean, where her father is, and find out what is going on.

They fly over and they get a boat to go over to the island of Matul, where Anne's father is. They meet a couple called Brian(Cliver) and Susan and they take them along too. The island is meant to be cursed. Dr. Menard(Richard Johnson) works in the hospital on the island. He is also doing research on voodoo. He injects himself with something. He then tests his blood. Peter and the others are looking around for the island. Susan goes scuba diving off the boat and she sees a shark. Then she sees something else. She thinks that it is a man but it is a zombie and it tries to get her. It gets distracted by the shark and there is a zombie vs shark fight!!!!

Back on the island, Dr. Menard looks at all of the infected people in his hospital. The locals are scared. The witch doctor is scaring them. Menard's wife gets killed when a zombie breaks in.  In the hospital, the doctor shoots the corpses to stop t hem from becoming zombies. He is going to make sure they are buried. He meets Peter and the others and they talk about Anne's father. He tells her that her father died. The locals tell him that they saw a zombie. They run to the doctors house and find his wife's body being eaten by zombies.  They get into a car and try and escape. Brian and Susan find a graveyard. The zombies start to rise from their graves. Susan gets bitten. Brian shoots at the zombie and Peter smashes its head. They find the doctor and barricade themselves into the hospital. 

The doctor tells them that the infection began three months ago and got worse and worse. The zombies come to the door. Peter and the others fight. Menard gets bitten. More and more zombies arrive and the group try to burn them out. They have to try and escape. Susan reanimates and she bites Brian. Peter shoots her. The hospital explodes. Brian, Peter and Anne get to the boat. Brian is in a bad way. They hear on the radio that the zombies are taking over. Brian dies. They keep his body in a box so that they can show it to the authorities as proof of the zombies. The movie ends with New York being taken over by zombies...

I liked this film. It is a really good zombie movie with some gory scenes. Fulci does a good job here and the scene with the zombie and the shark is unique!!! It is a sequel of sorts to Dawn of the Dead(1978) also. There is plenty to like about this film. It has zombies and some gore and the story is not bad. So, all in all, I recommend this one. It is fun and I really enjoyed watching it. I will give this one a 7/10.
