I saw it on a lazy day in my youth - caught it on TV - and could not stop watching it. It's about a town overrun by tarantulas (and for a long time, while trying to track this movie down, I assumed it was called Tarantula). It was first broadcast in November of 1977, but I'm guessing I saw a rerun - I feel like I saw it on a Saturday afternoon..
I'm guessing that if I see the movie today all these years later, I'll find it on the cheesy side - well okay, the really cheesy, sharpest damn cheddar you can find - but sometimes cheesy is good.

It's even got the typical crazy-old-coot character.
|"I'm givin' all she's got, Jim!"|
I clearly remember the ending, too, which I won't give away, but at the time, it sent goosebumps down my spine.

So c'mon Netflix - get on it!
