Kiss of the Tarantula Movie Review

Kiss of the Tarantula is a 1976 horror movie directed by Chris Munger and starring Suzanna Ling and
Ernesto Macias.

Susan Bradley(Ling) is a young girl who loves spiders. Her mother wants to send her away as she doesn't like her. Her father stands up for her. The mother is having an affair with Susan's uncle, Walter(Macias). They are planning to kill her husband so they can be together. Susan hears their plans so she uses her spiders to kill the mother, who dies of a heart attack after seeing them.Cut to years later and Susan lives with her dad, who owns a mortuary. He is going away for a few days, leaving Susan alone in the house with her pet spiders. A guy called Joe Penny calls Susan and she asks him to come over to the house. A group of Joe's friends come over and mess with her. They end up killing one of her spiders. She swears revenge.

Susan follows them to the drive in and uses a box of her pals to kill them. The cops investigate. Walter is on the case. He is also coming onto his niece. She disposes of one of the gang who she didn't kill. He comes to get her and she uses her eight legged army to get him and he dies. Walter investigates and finds a spider leg at the scene. He knows that Susan has something to do with it.
He kills a girl who snoops around Susan. He tells her that he killed the girl who was snooping into her business. Susan is horrified and runs off. He chases her. She pushes him down the stairs and he can't move. She drags him into the coffin room and she puts him into it. She covers him up and puts a dead body on top of him and closes the lid, cutting of his air. The movie ends with Susan smiling.

This was a weird movie. The lead character is very weird in that she loves tarantulas and has loads of them in her basement. There is not much to this film. It is pretty simple. A girl kills her mother by scaring her to death with her pet spiders. Then she gets revenge on some louts who killed one of her beloved spiders! If this appeals to you, then watch it but beware that there are loads of spiders in it!!!I hate spiders and this was uncomfortable viewing for me!But I did actually find it a little bit enjoyable.I will give it a 4/10.

It's Ed Sr and he takes her off then he kills Mike too. The others are looking for them. They meet the beach patrol officer and tell him that they are looking for their friends. He goes on his way and ends up getting killed by Ed. Sr. The others think that Mike and Linda are having fun somewhere so they play games.

Pam and Ed get into the car but it won't start. The dad gets back up and he attacks them again. Pam burns him with the cigarette lighter and he falls off the car. The cops show up. Pam uses the car to back the dad into a wall and kill him. He manages to chop on a cop's leg before he dies. The movie ends with Pam and Ed in hospital together. They are happy that it is all over.

This was a fun horror movie. It is one that I had heard about, but had never gotten a chance to see.
I liked it and I thought that it was entertaining. There are some great kills in it and the story is good.
I enjoyed watching this and if you like slashers, then this will be for you. I recommend this one. I am going to give it a 6/10.
