KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS, 1977, Park Circus, USA, 97 minutes, Dir: John “Bud” Cardos

William Shatner stars as a veterinarian who sounds the first note of alarm when animals begin dying from spider venom; soon the entire populace of Verde Valley, Ariziona is under attack from tarantulas. A low-budget but highly entertaining revenge-of-nature tale, made with thousands of real spiders.

FORMAT: 35mm

THE DEVIL’S RAIN, 1975, Shout! Factory, USA / Mexico, 86 minutes, Dir: Robert Fuest

Mark Preston (William Shatner) possesses a powerful ancient book sought by Satanic cult leader Jonathan Corbis (Ernest Borgnine) and heads for a desert ghost town to try to beat the devil in a battle of faith. Director Robert Fuest (THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES) enlisted real-life Satanist Anton LaVey as technical adviser on this occult thriller, which also features Tom Skerritt, Eddie Albert and a young John Travolta.

IMPULSE, 1974, Grindhouse Releasing, USA, 87 minutes, Dir: William Grefé

Playing like a twisted cousin of ‘Shadow of a Doubt’ this 1974 cult classic sees an impeccable William Shatner as conman and gigolo Matt Stone whose leisuresuits hide something more sinister and smarmy than just his personality – setting his eye on his latest target, he finds himself the target of the suspicion of the widow’s teenage daughter Tina. From start to finish an absolutely delight, IMPULSE is FINALLY back on the big screen in a restoration it truly deserved.
