Review by Buzz McClain

This stand-alone sequel starts off with a promising action sequence at sea but then settles into the overly familiar hide-and-seek formula used by every monster movie of the millennia, until the heroic action blow-out at the finale. Clearly the filmmakers were going for chilly laughs, not true frights, as attested by Richard Moll's stereotypical, over-the-top mad scientist. The spiders, rendered by computers and puppets, are primitive and will frighten only true arachnophobics. Still, the sequel is superior to the original; if viewers liked the first, they'll love the second.
