This is a pretty funny 'horror' movie. It must have been great fun to watch at a drive-in 'back when' but now it's really campy. One of the big weaknesses of this movie is that most of the 'teenage' type actors are beyond the believable age range. The main character high school boy's friend (who is also supposedly a high school student) is played by someone who is - and looks every day of - 35 years old. And did you know that spiders actually make a high-pitched screaming noise? That part was news to me. If you go for these old horror / monster type movies, you could give this one a try - but keep something in backup just in case you decide this isn't worth your time, which might possibly be the case.
