The Synopsis for Spider Baby (1967) 1080p

In a dilapidated rural mansion, the last generation of the degenerate, inbred Merrye family lives with the inherited curse of a disease that causes them to mentally regress from the age of 10 or so on as they physically develop. The family chauffeur looks out for them and covers up their indiscretions. Trouble comes when greedy distant relatives and their lawyer arrive to dispossess the family of its home.

The Reviews for Spider Baby (1967) 1080p

Finally Getting the Respect It DeservesReviewed bygavin6942Vote: 8/10

The Merrye family has a rare genetic disorder that causes those who have it to revert to childlike mental states after puberty and then slowly regress to an animalistic mind. One branch of the family, due to inbreeding, has the disorder to a most common and extreme degree. Looked after by the chauffeur Bruno (Lon Chaney), this branch encounters distant cousins, looking to take over the family fortune.

When horror historians talk about the memorable and classic horror films, they will cover "Dracula" and "Frankenstein" and a handful of others... the 1960s brought us "Rosemary's Baby". But it also brought us this cult classic, long overlooked and unfairly so. Jack Hill's "Spider Baby" is among the best horror films of the era, containing everything a fan could want. Even that other film released in 1968, George A. Romero's "Night of the Living Dead", while more historic, simply does not hold my attention as this one does.

Chaney runs the show in one of his final films (what Hill calls his last "mostly sober" role), and of the work I have seen I would say this is better than some of his most memorable roles. Rather than acting out a monster, he shows a sense of humanity that is hard to match. And on the other end of the spectrum, we have a young Sid Haig (now best known for "House of 1000 Corpses" -- Rob Zombie was a "Spider Baby" fan growing up), who plays the most animalistic of the Merrye children, Ralph.

The two Merrye sisters, Elizabeth and Virginia (played by Beverly Washburn and the late Jill Banner, respectively) are what will keep you hooked, as they are quite deadly when they take on the characteristics of the common spider (Virginia much more than Elizabeth). While Bruno is safe (recognized by the kids as a father figure), even cousin Peter Howe (Quinn K. Redeker) and his "pretty lady" girlfriend (Mary Mitchel) are on the menu when the instinct takes over.

The violence is tame, there is no nudity... and the gore is only implied (a before and after shot of a captured cat leaves us assuming what happened in the kitchen). But the plot is fascinating, the characters are engaging. There is a sense of "camp" to the film, but mostly just because the film is from the 1960s, not because it is poorly made.

A remake was on the way from writer-director Jeff Broadstreet, which would have by no means compared to this; it is impossible. Fortunately, it seems the film has been canceled for the foreseeable future, as Broadstreet instead made his "Night of the Living Dead" animated film that I did not see. You could step up the explicit sexiness or the violence in a remake, but that is not what made this film great. It has a feel to it that was a matter of being the right people at the right time. I am sure they will some day try to pay homage to it by casting Haig as Bruno, but the only thing I can say is this: horror fans need to snatch up this lost classic. Give the new one a chance, but do not miss the original.

Recently (2012), the film was chosen by the Academy for inclusion in its list of films to be preserved, and Jack Hill was able to make a cut he always wanted to make (it is a mere 29 frames and involves Peter and Bruno in the basement). I could not be more thrilled.

Meet the Merryes: they're like The Addams Family, only creepier, kookier, and much, much ookier!Reviewed byBA_HarrisonVote: 9/10

The last generation of the Merrye family, Ralph (Sid Haig), Virginia (Jill Banner) and Elizabeth (Beverly Washburn), all suffer from a rare syndrome that causes progressive age regression and an eventual reversion to a savage, pre-human condition. After the death of their father, family chauffeur Bruno (Lon Chaney Jr.) assumes responsibility for the 'kids', keeping them hidden from prying eyes behind the tall gates of the family home; that is, until greedy Aunt Emily (Carol Ohmart) and Uncle Peter (Quinn K. Redeker) turn up at the old house with a devious plan to get rich quick; aided by slimy lawyer Schlocker (Karl Schanzer) and his pretty secretary Ann (Mary Mitchel), the couple intend to become the youngsters legal guardians, a move that will entitle them to ownership of the house and control of the family fortune, but which might also cost them their lives.

1968 was a great year for horror: not only did it see the birth of 'yours truly' (a horror legend in my own mind) and, almost as importantly, the introduction of the modern zombie film (in the pale, shuffling, flesh-hungry form of Night of the Living Dead), but it was also the year that gave us demented drive-in favourite Spider Baby, the undoubted inspiration for Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil Rejects, all of which used the Merrye family as the blueprint for their own murderous clans.

To the casual onlooker, Ralph, Virginia and Elizabeth might not appear as immediately foreboding as either the Sawyers or the Fireflys, the boy being a drooling simpleton, and both girls being rather comely young fillies; but get them upset, or agree to participate in one of their games, and you'll eventually discover, chainsaw or no chainsaw, that they're not the sort of people you would elect to spend the night with: spider obsessed Virginia traps her victims in her rope web before 'stinging' them with a pair of carving knives; Elizabeth is no slouch with a pitch fork; and Ralph becomes uncontrollable after watching his surprisingly fit Aunt Emily cavorting around her room in her underwear. Bruno, on the other hand, is always trying to ensure good behaviour from his unruly and unhinged wards, but more often than not finds himself having to cover up for their messy mistakes.

Director Hill expertly blends his ghoulish humour with moments of genuine horror, and the film benefits immensely from some perfectly balanced and extremely memorable performances: Haig is wonderful, as always; Banner and Washburn are dangerously sexy as young women with the minds (and dress sense) of little girls; and Lon Chaney Jr. gives a brilliant tongue-in-cheek turn, providing a few laughs at the expense of his earlier career and giving the film some pathos in its explosive finale.

If you're an aficionado of weird and wonderful cinema, a rabid fan of the gruesome and macabre, or just an all round horror addict keen to expand your knowledge of the genre, and you haven't yet seen Spider Baby, do so immediately—your life won't be complete until you do.

A funny, unashamedly crazy little movieReviewed byjim-251Vote: 10/10

If you're looking for slick, look elsewhere. SPIDER BABY is a uniquely off-kilter movie that has no pretensions to being anything other than a very twisted horror comedy. It parodies movies in general, the horror genre, and itself with equal facility. There has certainly never been another film like it. This story of the revealing of all the skeletons in the closets of the Merrye House unites Lon Chaney Jr. (in the best performance of his career), Mantan Moreland, Carol "House on Haunted Hill" Ohmart, Beverly Washburn, Sid Haig, Mary "Dementia 13" Michel, Jill Banner (17 years old when she made the film!) and others in a loony stew of murder, madness and hilarious mayhem.
