    What animal strikes more fear into the heart of man than… the banana spider?!?! Well, at least that’s the premise the creators of TARANTULAS: THE DEADLY CARGO were hoping would win over made-for-tv horror fans in 1977. This creature feature — weirdly a Christmastime release, for no reason in particular — doesn’t quite come together, but luckily actor Pip Lilly is on hand to talk with Sam about its hunky eye candy.
