Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments: Angel


Hello my wonderful visitors,

  Today’s plans are for two “Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments” postings: One for Angel, S6 and one for BtVS, S8. I’m also working on the next movie review and will be posting that later today. If you’re just chompin’ at the bit for which black & white giant critter feature we’ll be tackling - it’s 1955’s Tarantula starring Creature Feature mainstays John Agar and Mara Corday.

Movie Reviewed: Tarantula (part i of ii)



Starring: John Agar, Mara Corday, Leo G. Carroll
DIR: Jack Arnold

Blurb (imdb): A spider escapes from an isolated desert laboratory experimenting in giantism and grows to tremendous size as it wreaks havoc on the local inhabitants.


Scene 01: We open, before credits, on a windswept desert landscape. We pan across a dirt tract full of tire marks, despite the wind on the soundtrack focusing on a man shambling and stumbling in exaggerated fashion.
