About Spider Baby
Once likened to a sitcom directed by Luis Bunuel, Jack Hill’s bizarre mini-budget debut feature was barely seen until the video revolution. This one-of-a-kind jet-black comedy casts Lon Chaney as the harried caretaker of an inbred family of homicidal maniacs. Weird, dark and funny, with standout performances by Chaney, Sid Haig and the mesmerising Jill Banner, who died in a car accident at 39. Be sure to visit the official Spider Baby website.
