They really get under your skin
Captain Mike Sturgess and his squad is in a tough battle against Taliban soldiers in Iraq. Suddenly, the Taliban soldiers stop shooting back and are found dead. Sturgess brings the bodies of his own fallen soldiers back to the US, but it seems like he is taking home more than he wished for.
While driving a truck with the bodies in the back, a coffin falls out and a group of camel spiders are let loose to terrorize the nearby small town. Sturgess and his Sergeant Shelly Underwood starts to work together with the local sheriff Beaumont to try to fight them off and keep the locals safe.
Camel Spiders sees a collaboration between the legendary producer Roger Corman, b-movie director Jim Wynorski and of course the Syfy channel. It is actually supposed to be based on real events from the Gulf War in the early 90’s, although very loosely of course.
