Monster of the Day #1150

Well, OK, this spider is slightly more upscale.

  • KRULL! One of the best moments in the film is watching this bad girl skitter about.

  • Flangepart

    KRULL…so a fan of the film is a Kruller?
    Seriously, that flick is prime riff bait, in spite of the nifty bug.

  • SteveWD

    I love KRULL, mostly for its effects. I’m a sucker for pretty much all of Derek Meddings’ work.

    Also, what other movie teaches us that the real ultimate weapon is true love….which can then be used as a big ol’ flame thrower to roast your enemies alive, burn through stone walls, etc…….

  • Rock Baker

    Yes indeed, you can be sure if it’s Meddings!

  • Acethepug

    Heh, I actually loved Krull, too.

    Looking back, when I was re-watching my DS9 DVDs, I was shocked to realize that the Maquis/Starfleet officer Eddington was the lead in Krull!

    I know, everyone else knew, but I EVENTUALLY figured it out :)

    Definitely one of my favorites growing up. Partly because I loved the tie-in arcade game long before I saw the movie! How sad is that…

  • Marsden

    I see your arcade game and raise you the Atari Home version.

  • Luke Blanchard

    I remember this as one of the film’s strongest sequence, not just for the spider, but for what happens to the man and woman.
