Over at Pychotronic Reviewwe’ve created a new page for the classic German horror-girly film, Horrors of Spider Island.
If you know the film, it is probably because Mystery Science Theater 3000 featured it in their final season (10th if you don’t count the KTMA season, 11th if you have any class at all). As I’ve been working on the Psychotronic Review project, I’ve been surprised at how often I run into the show. Of course, Michael Weldon’s The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film was their bible, just as it is mine.
But the film is quite good all on its own. I wish I could find it in German. You can get a taste of it in a short clip. In addition to hearing the original language, the picture quality is fantastic — at least compared to all the English language versions online.
Anyway, head over to Psychotronic Review to check it out. The page includes the full movie from Archive.org. It’s the perfect film to watch on this rainy Friday afternoon.
