“A LIVING, CRAWLING HELL ON EARTH!”
When chemical pesticides wipe out the insect population in rural Arizona, a spider colony with no food supply migrates through a farm town, threatening everyone in its path. The town’s veterinarian (William Shatner!) will do everything in his power to survive the onslaught.
Coming late in Shatner’s decade-long break from playing Kirk (aside from 22 episodes of the STAR TREK animated series…), KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS used 5,000 real, live, shy tarantulas on set (costing an estimated 10% of the movie’s entire production budget).
“With a plot that’s part JAWS and part 1950s eco monster romp, KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS has a wonderful, suspense-filled build up to a knockout second half with enough great shocks for two movies.”DVD Drive-in
- Directed by John ‘Bud’ Cardos
- Starring William Shatner, Tiffany Bolling, Woody Strode
- 1977 | 97mins | USA | 18
