Written/Directed/Produced by Fred Olen Ray

After receiving a series of anonymous Shakespearean sonnets, Spidora (Megan Sheehan), a Side Show performer who plays the ‘Girl with the Body of a Hideous Spider’ at Dr. Grave’s (Jerry Lacy) Museum of the Weird, finally agrees to meet her secret admirer (Bobby Quinn Rice) at the urging of her fellow workers. In the dark dressing room after the last show, her true self is revealed.

While Spidora may look very strange on the surface, it is at its very heart, an eight-legged love story. A collaboration between the 1960s Dark Shadows TV star, Jerry Lacy, and cult film director, Fred Olen Ray, it’s an affectionate nod to the carnival freak shows of days gone, by where being different and finding love didn’t often go hand in hand.
