THE HORRORS OF SPIDER ISLAND (1960)
Plot Synopsis: A troupe of dancing girls find themselves caught in a deadly web when they are shipwrecked on a remote South Seas island. The lush, tropical isle seems an ideal place to await their rescue, but hidden in the jungle are giant poisonous spiders. A venomous bite transforms the girls' escort into a disfigured beast, half-man and half-insect. Consumed with lust and craving blood, the monster hunts down the defenseless girls and slaughters them one by one. The ensuing panic drives the dancers to squabble ad fight among themselves until they realize that their only hope for survival is to work together in a final stand against the monster.
