RiffTrax Live: The Giant Spider Invasion Staff Pick

When: Thu., Aug. 15, 7 p.m. 2019
Price: $13.47
If ever there was a cheesy film made for Minnesota-based Mystery Science Theater 3000, it was the 1975 monster flick The Giant Spider Invasion. Set in Wisconsin (Minnesota's natural enemy), the film's titular stars are actually VW bugs dolled up in spider mufti. Why giant spiders? When a meteor smashes into the Wisconsin countryside, the other-dimensional spiders riding along disembark and start growing at a furious rate (must be all those cheese-fed people they eat). The local astronomer and a vacationing NASA scientist figure out a way to stop them, and a guy who looks a lot like Jim Gaffigan but with a worse haircut rambles around doin' stuff. MST3K veteran Mike Nelson returns to the scene of the crime to mock it all over again with help from old pals Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy. RiffTrax Live: The Giant Spider Invasion takes place at 7 p.m. Thursday, August 15. You can watch it as it unfolds at the Marcus Ronnies 20 Cinema (5320 South Lindbergh; Tickets are $13.47.
