Web of the Spider 2004 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
My copy of this flick is from an outstanding 10 DVD (double-sided)Brentwood compilation called “Nightmares From the Crypt” which has other cult classics like “Don’t Look In the Basement”, “Messiah Of Evil”, “Circus Of Fear”, “Horror Hotel”, “Jack the Ripper” and the like. This version is 102 minutes & not rated. I really liked this movie and is one of the most played of this compilation.
Klaus Kinski gives his usual manic, if brief, performance and is quite entertaining (as he usually is). The filming of the castle is very dark & creepy, which is perfect for a late-nite viewing. While this is not a gorefest, it is an above-par haunted house story with some kinky subplots interspersed throughout. The ending sequence where Alan Foster is escaping the vampires who inhabit the castle into the morning light in slow-motion is quite freaky & hilarious. Me & my buddies got a huge kick out of this one late late night when we watched a huge portion of this compilation enjoying our favorite tobacco. In the end, Kinski shows up & eerily looks to the sky muttering “no one will believe this”.
I highly recommend this film for fans of this sub-genre (late 60’s/early 70’s horror). I also strongly recommend the Brentwood 10 DVD compilation “Nightmares From the Crypt” (see my review on this), because it is the BIGGEST BANG for the buck & highly entertaining!!
