The movie needed Beach music, instead of the same "background-music" from a Japanese Tea ceremony for every damn scene.

As a Special FX point of reference, do you realize this movie was made only 18 months before Star Wars?

The writing in this movie makes me want to punch everyone responsible. I can see the exact kind of 'engaging cast of eccentrics banters' thing it's going for, and how HORRIFICALLY IT'S FAILING.

I find it hard to believe they didn't make a Star Trek joke with regards to the lush. She played in the TOS episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?"

In this movie I feel like there is a subplot of the lush having an affair with Dutch that we don't really get to see. Relevant? No but a conversation piece anyway.

Steve Brodie, the "star" of this gem, as Dr. Vance, had some pretty impressive credits earlier in his career. He's the guy Jane Greer shoots while Robert Mitchum and him are fighting in noir classic "Out of the Past." Too bad he ended up in this kind of dreck.

I love how much that scientist lady fails to sound intelligent. It starts with that very odd remark about how a teaspoon of super-dense matter "could only be lifted with a giant crane". Who talks like that? Are theoretical giant cranes a superlative scientific benchmark? She might as well be saying "In technical terms, a neutron star could beat up Superman."

I think the most underappreciated riff is tom saying "This can't Wisconsin there's no signs for the Tommy Barrett watershow" because anyone outside the midwest wouldn't understand. It still makes me laugh every time.

im sure someone else noticed this but horrifying blonde guy who owns the farm the spiders land on is also a witch burner in Touch Of Satan. Im actually impressed by how nauseating his portayal of this character is. Its hard to drum up that much hate/disgust/twitchtiness without pure talent. Maybe Phillip Seymore Hoffman or Crispin Glover . I mean he is just oozing with spousal abuse, lechery and incest. But, aside of that, this is one of my all time faves. The super sexist scientist guy with Barbara Hale has a lot of D bag competition.

The giant spider was a volkswagen covered in fur with legs controlled by crew inside, and they drove it backwards so the break lights would be its red eyes. Haha. Thank you wikipedia and the people who don't have lives who find that information.
