The Cobweb Hotel (1936)

**** (out of 4)

Excellent short from Dave Fleischer has a newlywed fly couple showing up at a hotel ran by a spider. The two soon realize that the rooms are made of cobwebs and that the spider is just using the place to lure in food. Yes, you have to wonder why flies would book a room at a place called "The Cobweb Hotel" but just leave logical questions out of it and have a great time. This here is a highly entertaining short that works on many levels including the creepy animation. The film starts off with a very creepy spider singing a creepy song so I'm sure this thing could scare some young kids. From here we see the spider go on the attack and then the flies eventually fight back in some very creative ways. THE COBWEB HOTEL features some wonderful animation and of course the colors also look terrific.
