The Synopsis for Spider Baby (1967) 1080p

In a dilapidated rural mansion, the last generation of the degenerate, inbred Merrye family lives with the inherited curse of a disease that causes them to mentally regress from the age of 10 or so on as they physically develop. The family chauffeur looks out for them and covers up their indiscretions. Trouble comes when greedy distant relatives and their lawyer arrive to dispossess the family of its home.

The Reviews for Spider Baby (1967) 1080p

It's mad all rightReviewed bypoccaVote: 7/10

The film opens with one of the most horrific murders ever shown on film; the rest of the movie is never again quite this frightening or startling, but is enjoyable nonetheless as a horror-comedy of the same ilk as "House on Haunted Hill" or "Bucket of Blood." The story concerns a family of inbred Southern degenerates who were once proud and powerful but whom years of inbreeding have reduced not only to childlike idiocy but savagery; some distant relatives out for money decide to meddle with dire, predictable results. The movie, complete with a loyal retainer, cute but deadly kids, and some even deadlier aunties and uncles kept tucked away in the cellar is essentially an extended version of an Addams family episode (the drawn out dinner scene is a bit too sitcomish). However, there are enough funny-scary moments to keep things moving along: the more memorable of these being when bitchy ice queen Emily succumbs to brother Ralph's caveman charms and when sister Virginia, the spider baby of the title, gives her long dead father a good night kiss?a scene with a weirdly poetic quality like something out of Poe. Perhaps the best part of the movie is Lon Chaney Jr. in his touching portrayal of Bruno, the kindly chauffeur who is genuinely devoted to his savage and hopeless surrogate family.

A cult film that deserves its status.

At one point in this movie, Virginia (Jill Banner), the "Spider Baby"of the title, grabs a spider from the table and pops it into her mouth.Her sister Elizabeth (Beverly Washburn) quips, "Spiders don't eatspiders."

"Cannibal spiders do," retorts Virginia, and this scene sums upeverything good about Spider Baby: twisted, funny, and possessing aninternal logic that pretty much justifies anything it does, no matterhow preposterous.

Originally funded by two real estate developers and locked away foryears after a bankruptcy filing, Spider Baby hit the drive-in circuit,made its modest sum of money, and faded away--almost. Somewhere downthe line, it developed a cult status despite only being available onlow-quality, grainy video. It is now available on DVD in a restored cutthat reveals strikingly beautiful black-and-white cinematography.Low-budget it may be, but it's gorgeous to look at.

Lon Chaney Jr. stars as a butler taking care of his deceased employer'schildren (Washburn, Banner and Sid Haig). The siblings suffer from ahereditary disease that leaves them intellectually childlike but alsomakes them casual murderers, a problem compounded when distant cousins(Quinn Redeker and the stunning Carol Ohmart) arrive with designs ontaking over the estate. The plot is simple and the movie is short (only81 minutes), but it wastes no time and delivers plenty of creepythrills, among them cannibalism, implied necrophilia, and midnightchases through the woods.

The acting is a pleasant surprise as well. The entire cast does aconvincing job of bringing these oddball characters to life. There area few missteps here and there: a couple of moments, for instance, whenRedeker addresses the audience directly, and it's hard to know if thehumor is intentional or not. Overall, however, the quality of eachperformance is pretty high. Especially touching is a scene whereChaney's character realizes there will be no good end to the situation,and his obvious affection for these mad but dangerous children actuallybrings a tear to the eye.

Well worth checking out if you're into horror, grim humor, or very,very odd movies.

Completely mad!Reviewed byThrownMuseVote: 8/10

Meet the Merrye family. Elizabeth (Beverly Washburn) and Virginia (Jill Banner) appear to be teenagers, but they act like young children. Ralph (Sid Haig) seems to be a little older but doesn't speak and is disturbingly ape-like in his actions and behavior. They live in the isolated family mansion, their parents are dead, and they are taken care of by the family chauffeur, Bruno (Lon Chaney, Jr). See, the Merrye's suffer from a degenerative brain disease that causes their mental state to reverse once they hit a certain age, eventually regressing all the way back to a primal state. Bruno feels it is his responsibility to take care of the remaining members of the family. However, two distant relatives and their lawyer show up, planning on seizing custody and the family's wealth. They get more than what they bargained for.

This is movie has it all--dark comedy, creepy atmosphere, surprising scenes, and a surplus of weirdo characters. The performances are mostly stellar, but this movie belongs to the "children," who are perfect in balancing their roles with innocence and depravity. They carry movie all the way. Banner's first scene scared the hell out of me. I absolutely love this movie and recommend it to all horror fans.
