Both of the films were made by the amazing Bert I. Gordon. The "I" was for Incredible. Earth Vs. The Spider (1958 - 73m) all you have to know about this film - it's big spider. This was a busy year for Bert because he also gave us War of the Colossal Beast (1958 - 69m) - (along with Attack of the Puppet People - part of MGM's Midnite Movies series). We thought we saw the last of Col. Glenn Manning, a man who grew to 60 feet tall after getting too close to an atomic blast. But now he's back and not looking too good - he really should use more lotion.
Both of these films are Psychotronic gems. I remember seeing both Colossal films on Channel 56's Creature Double Feature in Boston. Do hope the Nicholson estate gets their titles onto high quality DVD releases.
Anyway its a fun movie and its about as good, or maybe, dare I say it, even better than Universal's "TARANTULA".
It is also a shame that they couldn't pair 'WAR OF THE COLLOSAL BEAST" with AMAZING COLLASAL MAN" But those are the breaks, man.
