Midnight Art: Kingdom of the Spiders (1977)

Spiders … of course you’re scared of them. It doesn’t matter if they provide an important niche in nature by cutting down the number of pesky disease-spreading insects. They’re scary and you hate them.

Kingdom of the Spiders is a film that plays to that fear. Released in 1977, it stars William Shatner and hundreds, if not thousands, of real spiders.

A short description from Google:

Arizona farmer Walter Colby and his wife, Birch, have a problem on their hands: One of their cows was just killed by a creature, but they have no idea what the beast could have been. So they consult local vet Dr. Robert Hansen, who becomes puzzled and calls in scientist Diane Ashley. Eventually, the duo discovers that oversize spiders are invading the small town, putting the entire population in danger as a county fair begins.

Tomorrow we’ll have more bugs.
