    TARANTULA (1955) – Biochemist Gerald Deemer (Leo G. Carroll, North by Northwest) has a plan to feed the world by using a growth formula on plants and animals. Instead he creates terror beyond imagining when his work spawns a spider of mammoth proportions! Feeding on cattle and humans, this towering tarantula has the people of Desert Rock, Arizona running for their lives. Can this horrifying creature be stopped or will the world succumb to its giant claws? This classic sci-fi film from director Jack Arnold (Creature From The Black Lagoon, It Came From Outer Space) stars John Agar (The Mole People, Attack Of The Puppet People) and Mara Corday (The Black Scorpion, The Giant Claw) and features a cameo by Clint Eastwood as a jet squadron leader!

    Among my all time favorite giant bug movies. Can't wait to have it in Blu-ray.

    I have the 2014 German BD so I doubt I'll buy it again.

    Me too I am very satisfied with the german Blu Ray. I am excited for Shouts other release The Deadly Mantis. I look forward to finally seeing it in the correct ratio after the botched DVD release.

    Finally! Along with Them! this is my favorite giant arthropod-based movie. It doesn’t even need a story, really. It’s a giant, god damn tarantula slinking across the countryside. Done, I’m in.

    I remember, as a little kid, pretending my hand was the spider and my fingers would make the creepy AF pidey leg movements.

    It was the giant guinea pigs in this film that really freaked ME right out.
