TARANTULAS: The Deadly Cargo / Alan Landsburg Productions - 1977
Welp, here's a TV movie about an airplane carrying coffee beans from South America that has some creepy little stowaways, you know, the title... Tarantulas!! The plane crashes near an orange-producing town in California and the cargo of poisonous spiders escape, causing much tumult, screams and death... Like, in the poster!
I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our tarantula cage, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a little sample from... TARANTULAS: The Deadly Cargo!
Here's the classic plane carrying the deadly cargo, a good old DC-3 Gooney Bird...
But, during the flight, a bunch of the tarantulas escape from their bags and bite the Hell out of all the crew members.
The plane crashes and the locals in the agricultural community go out to survey the situation.
It stars Claude Akins, owner of the local packing warehouse. He's out there with the rest of the stars milling around... Claude played a lot of sheriffs in his career, he was also General Aldo in BATTLE FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES.
Pat Hingle plays the doctor, another familiar face from the world of TV.
This dude arrives to show off his new CAT cap when one of the little critters sez, hey!
The tarantulas are loose in the countryside and trying to get friendly with some of the girls!
Here's a shot for Eegah!! His first job back in the early sixties was working at a potato packing house... Looks like it's break time!!
Anywho, the guys risk their lives to get rid of the tarantulas from the warehouse. Get this, apparently, the little pests are rendered motionless by the transmitted sound of buzzing bees!
WILL IT WORK??!.. Tune in again on Wednesday when we submit our last post for September!
