A man with a strangely misshapen face wanders out of the desert near a small town and falls to the ground dead. The county sheriff (Nestor Paiva) tentatively identifies the dead man as Eric Jacobs, a laboratory assistant to Professor Deemer (Leo G. Carroll), a research scientist living a few miles out in the desert. But there's something strange about Jacobs; his facial features and bodily extremities are distorted to a point where he's barely recognizable. The sheriff calls in Dr. Matt Hastings

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
The tongue-in-cheek tone would foreshadow another monster movie set in the desert, the nearly unsurpassed 1990 throwback Tremors.
... the evil unleashed on human society is the deliberate product of scientific hubris rather than atomic radiation gone astray.
One of the '50s icons of sci-fi, featuring a giant tarantula on the rampage.
ambling arachnid set against the desert dunes looks almost plausible, even as its furry feet occasionally seem to glide above-ground.
Uma boa ficção "B", com efeitos visuais que ainda se sustentam e personagens suficientemente interessantes.
Above average giant insect fear film
