Movies with spiders always creep me out. Originally titled Earth vs. the Spider, after The Fly successfully buzzed theaters, AIP honchos decided to shorten the title to The Spider. Now that would have made a nice midnight double bill showing, don't you think? The poster art shows more verve than the movie, but it's still enjoyable: big spiders and small towns always work well together.
