Spiders have proven to be difficult cinematically, mostly because they are so unpleasant. The thought of the eight hairy legs of a tarantula crawling over someone and then biting you is just not fun to watch. Nor is the thought of a black widow spider, which children are told are deadly. You could write fifteen Charlotte’s Webs, and talk all about how the spider is a natural part of the circle of life… you see one trapdoor spider, or think about how spiders drain the life out of their prey, it’s enough to give anyone the heebie-jeebies. But at least in Kingdom of the Spiders we get William Shatner battling these eight legged varmints. My review of Kingdom of the Spiders special edition after the jump.
