 As a lover of spiders I'm torn between how cool this movie is with its portrayal of massive amounts of killer/world-conquering tarantulas and how many of said creepy-crawlies get quite clearly squashed to death by being stepped on or run over by various fleeing humans throughout the film. At least they perished for art(or in this case cheesy 70s animal-running-wild cinematic goodness). William Shatner is our heroic lead and as usual he's pretty awesome here playing a cowboy/ veterinarian, and of course he gets the ladies! Sammy Davis Jr.'s wife Altovise has a fairly big role playing the wife of spaghetti-western and 80s eurotrash staple Woody Strode. Spiders run around in packs and build big mounds to live in together just like they would never do in reality but I guess we can just blame their unlikely actions on all the pesticides which is the catalyst for their revenge in the first place. A great slice of 70s cheese that I was able to catch at the drive-in recently along with FROGS and SQUIRM on what might have been the greatest triple-feature I've ever seen.
