    As the new MST3K Netflix original was being promoted I decided to expose myself to some of the old episodes available for streaming on Hulu and Netflix (there is a different random selection on each platform). Whether it is Joel or Mike watching these awful movies with the bots I do not envy the torture they are put through. Their snarky comments add some entertainment value, but my ratings are based on the movie's quality itself and not the extra material broadcast from the satellite of love. This one approaches the so bad it's good category for me. It brought some fun and laughs with its cheesy writing and effects. This German film filmed in Yogolavia is also known as Body in the Web. A manager and his troupe of sexy dancing girls being trapped on an island is nothing new. The scale of the spider puppet is confusing (and are there supposed to be many around the island?). Its bite turns him into some kind of beast (without eight legs), but when the spider or the man-spider bites the women they simply die. A low-budget horror that does not deliver on its tagline "Blood-Curdling! Hair-Raising! Spine-Chilling!"

    This movie is horrible. There is little to no plot, and it's mostly some girls fighting over guys and stuff. Where were the horrors of this spider island? Don't see this movie, it's bad.

    I watched this movie via Mystery Science Theatre 3000, so for my it was highly enjoyable. Although, it was about 5% regarding spiders and 95% scantily clad, badly acting women running around doing ridiculous things. Also the giant spider guy looked more like a werewolf. 5 stars for awesomely bad movie category and 1/2 star for actual film category, so I'll make my real rating in between...

    Each to their own, a classic made in Germany in 60`s...No comment.
