A spider bitten dance producer terrorizes his bikini clad dancers after they're stranded on an island while on their way to Singapore. Meanwhile, Crow publishes his own syndicated column in the Boston Globe, though it's not as substantial as Larry King's. In order to save money on her monkey license, Pearl has Castle Forrester moved to a nicer neighborhood though not with Observer's help, which has certain financial consequences. She later has to move back when she learns she can't dump garbage out her window. After getting caught in a giant spider web, Mike plays the role of dance producer and has Pearl and her minions audition to join his own Singapore-bound troop. Then, after recreating the plane crash from the movie to test a theory, Mike gets bitten by a giant spider and becomes one himself though the resemblance isn't nearly as apparent to Tom and Crow. In the end, Pearl has to explain the birds and the bees to Prof. Bobo. Written by Titus Yorick

Wow, television shows DID air last night!
3 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me just start off by saying that this is one of the funniest episodes of MST3K ever (second to Hobgoblins) and the host segments are the most hilarious. Again, if you can ignore the fact that the film is terrible, you will love any episode of the show. Horrors of Spider Island is in my opinion one of the worst films Mike and the Bots have riffed, and I don't think I could have survived without the madcap jokes. Some of my favorite lines: "(moaning) We've got spirit, yes we do. We've got spirit, how 'bout... ugh." "Where do you want the silverware? Well in the kitchen where it always goes!" ""Wow, television shows DID air last night!" How can you go wrong with those kinds of lines? You can't? I thought so.

Please get Volume 11 to get this episode.
