EARTH vs THE SPIDER aka THE SPIDER is probably one of Mr. B.I.G.'s better efforts. The "dumb broad" has caught her dress in the door of the car and in panic doesn't think to open the door to free herself before the spider is upon her. (BTW Mr. B.I.G. frequently cross promoted his films in hiw own movies; you'll see ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE on the movie marquee and in once scene the teen hero mentions wanting to see a movie about "an amazing colossal man".) The crying kid is a surprisingly poignant scene; the aftermath of the giant spider attack with most iof the town in hiding is quite well done. Gene Fowler Jr. was the son of novelist/screenwriter Gene Fowler and also the director of I MARRIED A MONSTER FROM OUTER SPACE.
