The Rise And Fall Of Sheriff Skipper And The Spiders From Mars

If you’re arachnophobic, this picture might actually cure you…’cause it’s the most ridiculous of all the cheesy killer bug movies of the 7o’s. Alan Hale Jr and Barbara Hale (the stunning Della Street on Perry Mason. Hmm…were she and the Skipper married in real life? Bro and sis? Just a coincidence? Well, contrary to popular belief, I don’t know everything.) battle giant spiders from another dimension that came to Earth through a black hole (or was it a black spiderhole?). They start off as tarantulas, which are always creepy…but the giant versions are actually VW beetles covered in fur, with pipe cleaner legs and plastic gold eyes like the original Fly. Your grandma has hung scarier fake spiders on her porch for Halloween…

"Professor? Yeah, we're gonna need you to build a giant boot...do you think you have enough cocoanuts?"
