The Giant Spider Invasion was one of the many 1950's type movies (giant bugs, animals etc) that was made in the 70's and I enjoyed this despite reading a lot of bad reviews.
A strange meteor lands in a small town in Wisconsin and a load of strange looking eggs are found by it. Some of the locals take them home with them and spiders and tarantulas start hatching from them. Rather small at first, these creatures grow into giants and to make matters worse, are radioactive. After eating several people including the town's Sheriff, the hole where the meteor landed is blown up and the spiders are killed.
This movie gets going after a fairly slow start and is clearly done on a low budget.
The cast includes Barbara Hale (Perry Mason), Steve Brodie (The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms), Alan Hale Jr. as the Sheriff and Leslie Parrish.
The Giant Spider Invasion is a must for all sci fi and bad movie fans. Fantastic.
Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
