Movie Info

It's The Skipper vs. the Spiders! asGilligan's Island star Alan Hale, Jr. (whose first line is "Hey, little buddy") play the sheriff of a small Wisconsin town in which a black hole has opened up a door to another dimension and dropped a bunch of geodes in back of Kester's Farm in Bill Rebane's The Giant Spider Invasioin. Kester (co-screenwriter Robert Easton) is a sight to behold, a sleazy goateed lech in red longjohns and a backbrace. He's married to a pretty lush (Leslie Parrish) and lusts after his young sister-in-law, but still finds time to romance a Swedish waitress (Christiane Schmidtmer). Kester is excited about the geodes, which contain diamonds, but they crack open to release some nasty tarantulas. One of the furballs soon grows to gigantic size and starts terrorizing the countryside, attracting the attention of scientist Dr. Vance (Steve Brodie) and local astronomer Jenny Langer (Barbara Hale).more

Audience Reviews for Giant Spider Invasion


Another fiesta de la feces from Bill Rebane, director of the infamous Monster A Go-Go. The giant monster spiders (which take FOREVER to finally show up) look like something your kid would make for a grade 4 science project. Production values are oh-so-slightly better than Monster, but it's not nearly as much fun to watch. Mediocre-bad, not hilarious bad. Yawn....

One of those 1970's giant bug movies. This one was obviously just trying to catch the wave. Not good for anything - the most horrible effects, though if you have a fear of spiders, then this might make your skin crawl.


Never want to watch this again was just horrible! Bad acting and story. What was wrong with the cameramen or director? Were they drunk? Because the camera work was terrible! I've seen black and white movies with better cinematography. The only giant spider was nothing, it looked more like a parade float. The killings were dull, VERY dull. The whole movie was dull, no mystery, no chills or thrills, no suspense, not even some romance. It wasn not scary at ALL! Worst Sci-fi movie I've ever seen, no wait, worst movie ever! It gets half a star for having real spiders/ tarantulas and a nice misleading poster.
