Fun with GIFs: Spider Baby, or the Maddest Story Ever Told
Jack Hill’s 1968 film Spider Baby is one of my favourite films of all time! I’ve been dying to make a GIF set for this film. I made a huge step forward in my GIF making this weekend and finally figured out how to convert JPEGs/PNGs to GIFs more cleanly! This is just part one for this GIF set which focuses on the ladies of Spider Baby; Elizabeth and Virginia Merrye and Emily Howe. Elizabeth and Virginia have a million priceless moments; every single second they are on the screen is a priceless moment. It was tough choosing just a handful. Beverly Washburn and Jill Banner are perfect beyond perfection as Elizabeth and Virginia! And what can I say about lovely Carol Ohmart who plays the bitchy Emily Howe? First, I could say I wished I had been able to collect more usable images to make a gif that was befitting her awesomeness. Alas, only two were usable and they really don’t do justice to her brilliance. Watch for part 2 next week. To read my review of Spider Baby; or the Maddest Story Ever Told click here.
The opening credits for Spider Baby, or the Maddest Story Ever Told.
“I smell a bug.”
“A big black juicy…”
“Ladies and gentlemen, dinner is served.”
“I don’t know what you people are up to here but I’m going to have to call the authorities. Now there are laws. Criminal laws…”
“They’re coming, what’ll we do?”
“We’ll have to make a plan.”
“Good Evening Uncle Peter.”
“Is Mr. Bruno about?”
“No. No, he’s away.”
“Won’t you come in?”
“Yes, please do come in.”
“Ralph? Ooooooooh, Ralph?”
