kingdom of the spiders special edition DVDIt’s no secret that we love William Shatner, so it’s with much delight that we give you the heads up that his 1977 scifi-horror flick Kingdom of the Spiders will be released on Special Edition DVD tomorrow, January 19, 2010.

The movie was made at a time when filmmakers didn’t have CGI at their disposal to create scores of critters for their “creature invasion” movies. Therefore, if you wanted a spider invasion, you needed hundreds of live spiders, and Kingdom of the Spiders has just that — live tarantulas crawling all over the set and the actors!

The Special Edition DVD has an all-new anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film and comes with interviews, commentary, behind-the-scenes-footage, and more.

Check out the trailer, synopsis, clips, and bonus features information for the Special Edition DVD here below, along with a video of the Top 10 ridiculous William Shatner moments in Kingdom of the Spiders.

Synopsis

William Shatner stars as veterinarian “Rack” Hansen in this cult film about an Arizona town infested with a horde of arachnids that turn on the humans whose insecticides have depleted their natural food supply. After livestock belonging to Rack’s friend, rancher Walter Colby (Woody Strode), fall victim to a spider attack, entomologist Diane Ashley (Tiffany Bolling) arrives and tries to help Rack deal with the crisis — but with the big county fair fast approaching, Mayor Connors (Roy Engel) refuses to let them quarantine Colby’s ranch. Soon the remaining residents of the town must barricade themselves at lodge of Emma Washburn (Lieux Dressler) lodge in an effort to save themselves from the eight-legged invaders in the ultimate man versus spider showdown.

Directed by John Bud Cardos and written by Richard Robinson and Alan Caillou, Kingdom of the Spiders was released in 1977, grossing a respectable $17 million against a $500,000 budget.
