  • starring: Emma Catherwood, Lance Henriksen, and Lisa Livingstone

    A group of young European explorers are guided to an Indian village, located beside a cave, decorated in massive spider webs, and inhabited with "tarantula-like" spiders. The village is presided over by a mad scientist, protector of the village ogre -- whose grusome head is covered by a mask of spider webs. The action involves drum hypnotized villagers...explorers being chased into the cave by village guards, brandishing curved swords...a young woman, draped in spider webs, being paralyzed by a fearsome, metal hypodermic needle...a courageous Indian policeman...and lots and lots of arachnids, jumping crawling and biting, with the inevetable body count mounting. Undoubtably, a screen classic!
