This time, actor, inventor, filmmaker Rudolph Zehetengruber's yellow beetle is in a wacky race over the Swiss Alps to raise ta money for some sexy nuns who run an orphanage out of an old train station or something. There is a two-headed car, possibly named CA-CA, and at one point DU-DU impossibly turns into a helicopter a la Inspector Gadget.

Meanwhile, Cinema Insomnia's pit crew have some wacky exploits of their own as Mr. Lobo's co-host and houseplant, Miss Mittens, learns how to operate a motor vehicle with hilarious results. Drivers training films from Mr. Lobo's high school days, trailers, car-toons, vintage TV ads and other kitschy spare parts ar installed to help drag this loser over th finish line in the Indy 500 of late night slumber party fun! Actung Baby!

Horror Films Starring Real Spiders, Tarantulas

We here at Apprehensive Films love spiders, especially tarantulas. We even have a handful of pet tarantula's hanging around the office (which we'll post in a future blog). So we decided to take a look back at those few brave horror films that had the guts to work with real spiders in a major way. Enjoy.

  • Tarantula 1955
  • Kiss of the Tarantula 1976
  • Kingdom of the Spiders 1977
  • Tarantulas: The Deadly Cargo 1977
  • Arachnophobia 1990
  • Taranthriller 1993

Now most of you reading this blog have probably heard of most of these films with the exception of Taranthriller. Taranthriller is a Polish film that came out in 1993. It is very difficult to find and appears to have been made for Polish Television or least has had it's largest amount of exposure on Polish TV. I threw a couple of pics from that film below, just to wet your appetites.
