Love these pics! The first time I saw this movie, I was so lost. But then I rewatched it and loved it. Great, wacky, fun movie. Can't wait to see it again! Thanks for posting these.

I finally got to see that film last year after years of hearing about it but finding little info on the movie it self. I was not disappointed. The beginning song is great and a bit unusual for what the movie actually is.

Hey thanks folks! I read that the Smith estate house was originally occupied by Judge David Patterson Hatch, where he wrote occult books as well as metaphysical writings after he retired from the bench. I also wish I had the mp3 of Lon Chaney Jr. singing the theme song Spider Baby.
If anyone happens upon it will you send it to me and I will add to the post.. obscurehollow[@]gmail.com
