If you're tired of made-for-cable nature-amok flicks in which humans are terrorized by rampaging pixels, return with us to the glory days of the '70s, for a movie in which the threat is creepily real. The makers of KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS employed 5,000 live tarantulas to spin their story of a Southwestern town under arach attack after pesticides rob the creepy-crawlers of their usual food supply, and the result will have you nervously wondering what might be scurrying around under your theater seat. And who can take on the eight-legged menace? Why, it's William Shatner, of course, in the midst of his mid-'70s, pre-STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE resurgence, B- and TV-movie phase. Shatner and spiders in glorious 35mm—it doesn't get any better. (Michael Gingold)

Screening on 35mm film. Introduced by Fangoria's managing editor Michael Gingold.
