TARANTULA (1955) presented by Count Gore
Giant Spider Strikes! Crawling Terror 100 Feet High! Creature-feature auteur Jack Arnold (CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE) does it again with another fun, eye-popping thrill ride. Scientists' experiments with super-sizing the food supply through radiation go awry, resulting in a giant eight-legged terror with a large appetite of its own. "One of the best giant-insect films," said Leonard Maltin, a fan of the genre if a poor arachnologist. DIR/SCR Jack Arnold; SCR Robert M. Fresco, Martin Berkeley; PROD William Alland. U.S., 1955, b&w, 80 min. NOT RATED
