SynopsisPart of the "Maneater Film Series," In the Spider’s Web is a thriller that is sure to make your skin crawl and the hairs on the back of your neck rise. When a team of backpackers sets out to explore the Indian jungles, one of them is bitten by a poisonous spider. Forced to seek the help of Dr. Lecorpus (3 time Golden Globe nominee Lance Henriksen, Aliens), an American physician living in a local village, the group quickly discovers that the village has several secrets. As they learn of a venomous ritual in which a crawling army of spiders feasts on dead corpses, they unravel Dr. Lecorpus involvement in the ritual and his plans which are beyond anything any of them could have imagined. Now available for the first on DVD, with its dense jungles, marauding natives, mad scientists, screaming teens, and amassing arachnids, In the Spider’s Web is a gleefully entertaining creep-fest that’s as tough to shake loose as a tarantula in your hair.

Well…Winsor’s latest opus is also a TV movie—made for the Sci-Fi Channel. I’ll bet you can guess what kind of movie this is gonna be! That’s right—a big bug movie. …Read More
