When an otherworldly substance with amazing cloning properties falls into the hands of the evil criminal mastermind, Captain Maximum, only the extreme powers of the Italian Spiderman can save the world.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if an Italian producer took quaaludes, stumbled into a theater, and saw the first 5 minutes of spider man 2? Well worry no more because Italian Spider-Man is here to haunt your dreams with meteors, snake men, and macchiatos. Let's do it PussyCat!Written by
Right, so...........Italian Spiderman. Where in the blue hell would I start with this one?
This Australian made 40 minute short movie plays out like a 1960's exploitation movie complete with cinematography effects. It tells the story (And I use that term very loosely) of Italian Spiderman a dumpy superhero with undefined super powers taking on his evil luchador nemesis.
Though it looks Grindhouse it's a comedy even more ridiculous than the Airplane (1980) movies. It's not so much slapstick as it is random, weird and intentionally baffling. I see what they were doing and truth be told I often enjoy that horror, but here it just failed to hit the mark.
To its credit it's such an odd movie it is undeniably memorable. From the ridiculous dialogue to the hilariously intentionally bad sfx to the deeply moronic lead.
Again I get what they were trying to do but I couldn't get behind it. If something is going to be silly then it needs to be funny and very little was here.

Most jokes miss their mark
