The little independent film that went through the roof and made box-office history, becoming one of the Top 50 highest-grossing films of 1975. Few movies in film history have enjoyed the success, notoriety and shelf life as this all-time cult classic - The Giant Spider Invasion. Some of the reasons for this phenomenon are known and some are not. Certainly comparisons cannot be made with iconic classics of Hollywood's golden era that will live forever. While that may hardly be the case with The Giant Spider Invasion, an independent low budget enigma, it has however held its own for 40 years, moving on, with its tall hairy legs and VW power and a constant reminder of movies before the digital age and the effects craze of the 21st century. (Description) In this hilariously cheesy throwback to the giant-monster flicks craze of the 50s, giant spiders from outer space begin to invade Earth, when a huge black hole appears in a farmer's field outside a small town in Wisconsin. A NASA scientist deduces the invasion is the result of some sort of intergalactic gateway, as he devises a plan to stop the huge, hairy, creeping crawlers from devouring the local population.
