Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It sneaks up on you like a hungry tarantula with a wicked appetite for people."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"William Shatner battles spiders, and without a phaser!"
‑ Steve Crum,
"Shatner dominates ..., but he remains in character and restrains himself from completely overpowering the lesser-known supporting cast."
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Kingdom of the Spiders plays just as good and just as fun as it always has. This, as far as we're concerned, is the very first MUST HAVE horror DVD package of 2010."
‑ Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton, Dread Central
"Certainly cheesy, but it does give you the willies."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)

‑ Sean Axmaker,
"A hammy Shatner battles yucky spiders. Too bad the spiders don't win."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
