Rifftrax Live: The Giant Spider Invasion (1975)

For posterity more than an entertaining post, tonight I took our son to watch Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett make fun of a deeply stupid movie called The Giant Spider Invasion, which was made in Wisconsin in 1975 (PACKERS!!!) and which I saw on Elvira’s Movie Macabre when I was twelve. The film is really not appropriate for eight year-olds, but we had a blast and laughed ourselves hoarse.

I didn’t realize they were actually broadcasting live from a couple of hours up the road, to a packed house at the Belcourt in Nashville. Our theater was barely a third full, sad to say, but maybe when they announce their 2020 shows, we can scare up some people to come see one with us.

(Huh. You can buy Joel and the bots’ take on Fugitive Alien from the Rifftrax site. That might be the only way to make that godawful movie worth a second look…)
