If you have never seen Tarantula or The Deadly Mantis (also released by Scream Factory) you haven't lived. Why do I say that? The joys of a giant bug movie are one of the truly great gems that Hollywood has given us. TakeTarantula for example. We get tons of stock footage, forced perspectives, a regular sized Tarantula doing enormous things, and everyone once in a while you get a great cameo from someone who went out to be a legendary director and actor. Check out all the details and trailer for Scream Factory's next big bug movie release, Tarantula. #AFJ4LIFE

Feeding on cattle and humans, this towering tarantula has the people of Desert Rock, Arizona running for their lives. Can this horrifying creature be stopped, or will the world succumb to this oversized arachnid? This classic sci-fi film from director Jack Arnold (Creature From The Black Lagoon, It Came From Outer Space) stars John Agar (The Mole People, Attack Of The Puppet People) and Mara Corday (The Black Scorpion, The Giant Claw) and features a cameo by Clint Eastwood as a jet squadron leader!
