A group of people are backpacking in the jungle in India. They come across a disturbing sight--a huge spiderweb in the forest. One of the women is bitten and has a bad reaction. They are in the middle of nowhere but their guide knows of an American doctor that lives nearby. This guy, Dr Lecorpus, (Lance Henriksen) is a weirdo. He uses spiders for medication and even his hut is shaped like a huge tarantula. In fact, they learn that the whole village is part of a spider worshipping cult. There's a harrowing sequence that takes place in a spider infested cave that I found particularly creepy. Oh, and the doctor is also harvesting organs to sell on the black market.
This is a weird movie, sort of like one of those BLOOD ISLAND movies from Eddie Romero. There's not a lot of decent killer spider movies out there so I was pleasantly surprised to see this one. Recommended.
