Sandy Petersen compared to giant spiders I’ve seen, this one ranks with Weta or Harryhausen. It actually has a spider-like face and everything. It rules. Think of Nude for Satan’s spider, which really truly had pipe-cleaner legs and googly eyes. Or Bloody Pit of Horror’s spider, which Ken and I still aren’t sure was supposed to be a real live spider even by THAT movie’s standards. John Campbell Nothing beats the Gilligan’s Island spider! Well except for birds…damn you The Professor! Tom Cathy Downs in “Missile to the Moon”. This is a classically bad SF film from 1958. Listen closely for her patented 50s scream. BeckoningChasm Oh wow, wasn’t “Missile to the Moon” actually a remake of “Cat Women of the Moon”?
