THE OUTER LIMITS / The Children Of Spider County - 1964
Welp, it's time for more classic Sci-Fi TV with Tabonga, we just do what the control voice tells us to do, here at The Dungeon!..
Eegah!! just sent over this fun lil' soundclip that even has sound effects from THE WAR OF THE WORLDS in it, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the giant cobweb, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... THE CHILDREN OF SPIDER COUNTY!
The story's kinda like VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED except this time, dad comes for a visit from space to convince his ET kids to leave Earth and go back with him to his planet to live. Of course, here, the CIA knows all about the superhuman kids since they've been monitoring them for years.
Looking down, we see that one ET kid is in jail waiting trial for murder, which was actually an accident and wasn't his fault.
Dad drops in from the void (what the Hell is he riding in, a big light bulb?) to see the results of his many manly genetic romps enjoyed years earlier. Wherever he's from, they don't wear shoes! Hey, better watch out for them hookworms, pal!
Cool composite shot with a negative effect!
This shot in the mill makes it look like the kid's still in jail! Kent Smith plays the alien dad, we also remember Kent from THE INVADERS.
Dabbs Greer plays a crusty old rifle toting farmer, but, he's no match for the superior intellect of the alien. We love Dabbs in IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE.
Space pops gives Dabbs a dose of extreme negativity... Goodnight, sweet Dabbs!
Wow, a good looking suit really makes the monster!
Anyway, a frustrated dad can't convince any of the kids to go back with him. Lee Kinsolving plays the main kid, Lee had a real classic look, but sadly, he developed a strange respiratory illness which, without warning, rendered him unconscious in December of 1974, he collapsed and died at the young age of 36.
Dad leaves in his butane powered spaceship and goes back to where he belongs!..
