The film was originally begun by Herbert Tevos as "Lost Women of Zarpa", but a variety of factors--funds running out and neither the producers nor the cast being able to get along with Tevos--resulted in the production being shut down and then abandoned. A few years later Ron Ormond bought the film, shot some new footage and released it as "Mesa of Lost Women". See more »

More fun than a beard full of dancing, baby spiders!
One of the best of the so-bad-it's-beautiful movies. MESA OF LOST WOMEN tells the story of a mad scientist (Jackie Coogan with a wart the size of a Roosevelt dime!) who creates beautiful dancing girls out of spiders. (most likely to help out the struggling Rockette industry!) I absolutely loved the scene with the mad doc's victim, a scientist driven insane by a spider-woman encounter. He goes around bars, quoting something close to the Bible, in a silly Elmer Fudd voice.
What I really loved about this movie was Tandra Quinn, as Tarantella, the mad doc's best spider to mucha-cha creation. She's something like a brunette Jayne Mansfield with a little bit of Vampirella thrown in. Ms. Quinn, you made film history with your really strange spider dance.
