We gave it a B

This isn’t just cheese, folks. This is a veritable cheese platter. William Shatner, caught in career limbo between the Trek TV show and the Trek movie franchise, hams it up mightily in Kingdom of the Spiders as a veterinarian/cowboy who teams up with a sexy entomologist (Bolling) to save a town overrun by bloodthirsty tarantulas. Preposterous and schlocky, but man, does it go down good. EXTRAS include a delightfully loopy interview with Shatner and a cool segment with the film’s spider wrangler. B
