October Fright Fest-Kingdom of the spiders


A Small Arizona town begins to see tarantulas showing up. A farmer (Woody Strode) loses some animals to spider bites. Veterinarian William Shatner tries to find a solution with the help of Tiffany Bolling. Eventually it turns out the tarantulas are not only great in number, but very aggressive as well. Instead of finding a solution the townspeople find themselves fighting for their lives.

Favorite part-Just the fact that they used so many real spiders in this move helped it to look good. The concept is kind of far fetched, but you place real spiders all over the place and it looks like a real threat. The ending is good too.

Why you should see this film-William Shatner, tarantulas, great scenery, William Shatner, fine supporting cast and did I mention that William Shatner was in it?

If you've seen it before then you should watch it again because-The 70's was full of nature gone wild films. A few before Jaws, but many more after it's release. Kingdom of the spiders is one of the better ones from that sub-genre. Plus it holds up well under repeated viewings.
