Spiders On Ice

No... it's not a hellish beverage.

Like many of you, I surely do miss MST3K (Mystery Science Theater 3000), where they try to find the worst movie possible, then riff and joke through the whole thing. We watched a Made-For-SciFi Channel movie yesterday that would have been a perfect candidate. It was called "Ice Spiders". Yes, even the title conjures up a humorous image of people skating around in spider suits.

Instead of that, there are some very CG-looking spiders which need more hair, romping around on the slopes - and there is a real LOL moment when 3 of them come flying off the ski jump. Wheeeeeee!!!!!!

The movie adheres to the science-mutation monster movie stereotypical formula very well, so it's easy to guess what's going to happen next. One of the stars is Vanessa Williams, who is not to confused with the OTHER Vanessa Williams, the beauty queen. This one is also a beauty, nonetheless, and plays a scientist who is gorgeous, well-endowed, and always wears very tight, bright pink clothing. If you have seen any cheesy, mutation monster flick, you already know the plot, so just sit back and watch it unfold.

I wonder if they were inspired by this line of ice footwear?
