Spider Baby

12/24/1967; 80 minutes

Lon Chaney, Jr. stars as Bruno, the chauffeur and caretaker of three orphaned siblings who suffer from "Merrye Syndrome," a genetic condition starting in early puberty that causes them to regress mentally, socially and physically. As you probably guessed murder, chaos and insanity ensue. This genuinely bonkers film immediately sank into obscurity upon release, but has since achieved cult status. (USA / 1968 / Color / Horror-Black Comedy / dir. Jack Hill /with Lon Chaney Jr., Carol Ohmart, & Quinn Redeker) (#35559)
