A debris from the destroyed space station (where large mutant spiders were being experimented) fell into Earth, crashing in the tunnel of a subway station. As the film progresses, the spiders which were included in the fallen debris, started building up their colony as they also grew bigger. Jason, together with his ex-wife Rachel tries to save their daughter who is stranded in their block which is now being attacked by the mutant spiders. It is soon revealed that the military was the one who created the spiders for their weaponry. In the end, the queen spider was killed by Jason by crashing a train into it. But as the final scene slowly fades, another mutant spider is seen, and the film ends.

Filming took place in Bulgaria and director Takács had to create the city of Manhattan "on a studio backlot that includes several blocks of what looks like Greenwich Village". In order to make some parts of the film more closely resemble Manhattan, particularly the subway scenes, the director brought in some extra set pieces to help enhance the scenes. The spiders were predominantly CGI created, but Takács used a 3-foot-long soldier-spider claw for some shots.
The film was panned by critics and the movie holds a rating of 14% "rotten" on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 7 reviews. Fearnet gave Spiders an overly negative review, but said that the movie would have some appeal to fans of films akin to Spiders.
