|Oct. 31, 1958: “The Spider/Earth vs. the Spider” and co-hit “Terror From the Year 5000” play in Los Angeles.|
(Oh come on! TFTY5K only gets two stars on imdb? Nothing gets less than six stars on imdb! And only three stars for “The Spider?”). If long, artsy junk like “The Mother and the Whore” (which, yes, I sat through, all three+ tedious hours of it, when it came out) can get eight stars then there’s no reason “Robot Monster” can’t get at least seven stars.
