Description

Introducing FILMS WE LOVE! The best way to get to know us is through our favourite films!

First up: Cara!

"This film is truly the beginning of my love of Nature Fights Back films! There are few things in life better than watching Shatner talk-act his way through this spider-rampage. And! FUN FACT: did you know that after filming they released thousands of tarantulas on location? They were native to that area so they just let 'em go. 

It should be noted that tarantulas are shy little things and working with them was tough since they kept walking away from the action.

Don't be scared! Their venom is weaker than a typical bee's."

Kingdom of the Spiders (1977)
PG, 1h37m
Investigating the mysterious deaths of a number of farm animals, vet Rack Hansen discovers that his town lies in the path of hoards of migrating tarantulas. Before he can take action, the streets are overrun by killer spiders, trapping a small group of townsfolk in a remote hotel.
