Aro Recommended Spider Baby


USA 1964, 81 minutes
Dir. Jack Hill
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Cult / Psycho, Independent


Aroview: More of a twisted black comedy than a traditional horror flick – a threesome of child monsters and their ‘uncle’ rabidly protect their rural homestead when a distant relative comes to claim the estate with a band of gold-digging townies. Sleeping over is served with old-fashioned country hospitality - cat for dinner and murder for dessert! Stands out from the pack with a great twilight performance by Lon Chaney. Jnr. and cinematography that has only recently been able to be appreciated in this ‘restored’ print.
