earth vs. the spider
Genre: Giant Monster Sci-Fi Horror
Director: Bert I. Gordon
Starring: Ed Kemmer, June Kenny, Eugene Pearson / Sally Fraser, Roger Pace, Dean ParkinIn Brief: The Thursday Horror Picture Show kicks off its fourth year with two fat slabs of 1950s cheese from the man who could give Kraft a run for their money: Mr. Bert I. Gordon. It's a double bill of the giant bug movie Earth vs. the Spider (1958) and the giant man movie War of the Colossal Beast (1958). Ol' Bert liked 'em big. (Forrest J Ackerman didn't dub him "Mr. B.I.G" just because of his initials.) On a sliding scale (the only way to judge this stuff), the former is one of Gordon's most accomplished movies. The latter is not — it's a cheap cash-in sequel to the already cheap Amazing Colossal Man (1957). Both, however, are entertaining nonsense.
