Is there a worse death more imaginable than having a herd of blood-thirsty tarantulas slowly…..and I mean VERY slowly…..tear you apart as you lay there paralyzed after falling off of a ladder? Hardly not. Unless of course we’re talking about being strapped to a chair and forced to listen to Taylor Swift until your eardrums explode and blood pours out of your head like a leaky faucet.
On that lovely note, welcome to this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday – where I’m spotlighting tarantulas. More specifically, the incredibly slow moving tarantulas from Lucio Fulci’s classic Italian 1981 splatterfest, The Beyond. Poor Martin falls from a ladder and is rendered immobile. In come the fantastically awesome real (and fake) tarantulas to rip him to shreds. Grab some popcorn and sit down for a while, because this unintentionally hilarious (but awesome) scene runs 4 minutes long.
