RiffTrax Live: Giant Spider Invasion

Please choose a format above.

There’s a monster in Wisconsin, and it’s going to slowly, VERY slowly, strike TERROR INTO YOUR HEART! Sure, your grandma could outrun it, but TERROR is more fun! When a fiery meteor lands in the woods, strange things begin to happen in this small Wisconsin town — even weirder than usual, and that’s a pretty high bar!

While the townspeople are picked off by spiders of varying sizes, two esteemed scientists ramble around the countryside in a late model sedan, where they find friendship, romance and a big mechanical spider built on a Volkswagen Beetle chassis! Fortunately, the local sheriff refuses to leave his office unless tempted by a big plate of prunes. 

This live show also features the short Adventures in Telezonia, considered by many to be the pinnacle of the “creepy puppets who teach boys to use a rotary phone” genre. Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for RiffTrax Live: Giant Spider Invasion!
