In the countryside, after the death of the awarded calf of the farmer Walter Colby (Woody Strode), the veterinary Dr. Robert 'Rack' Hansen (William Shatner) sends blood samples to be analyzed by the University. A couple of days later, the scientist Dr. Diane Ashley (Tiffany Bolling) comes to the location and tells that the animal was bitten by spiders and killed by a massive dose of their venom. The skeptical Rack heads with Diane to Walter's farm and they find a huge spider nest in the field. Further, they find that the town is surrounded an enormous number of killer spiders and there is no way to run.
"Kingdom of the Spiders" is a horror trash-cult movie, with William Shatner in the lead role in a period that he was worshiped as Captain James T. Kirk of "Star Trek". The storyline follows the usual standard of this type of film (a murder; the discovery of the cause; the Mayor that wants to preserve his town for a big local fair; and so on). But the film is above the average of this type of film. In the end, it is worthwhile watching this entertaining film. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "O Império das Aranhas" ("The Kingdom of the Spiders")
