A scientist creates women that are half spider, half human.  *Yawn*  The real horror is the soundtrack, because the film makers recorded fifteen seconds of music, then looped it.

"Something that puzzles me is that the people who are kidnapped pass up multiple prime opportunities to overpower the crazy scientist. Yes, he has a pistol, but his attention often seems to wander."

What bugged me was: if Aranya's lab is located on top of a mesa that's so inaccessible, how does Tarantella get into town to dance every night?

Well she is part spider. She probably just climbs down the mesa Spider-Man style.... or spins a parachute out of some webbing and sails down from the top of the mesa. My money is on the latter.  Wink

what? no memtion of the horrible sound track - a 3-4 note riff played on a classicall guitar over and over again punchuated at times by what sounds like some heavily drugged with bandages on both hands banging on an out of tune piano. I was haunted for days by that.

I mention it in the front page blurb, and the movie listing entry - just not in the review itself.  Perhaps I should.  That 10 second music clip gets on your nerves, and stays on your nerves, because they never stop playing it.

I contemplated reviewing this one for the graveyard, but I usually end up watching a film about 5 or 6 times when I review it...and I don't think my sanity could take hearing that music that much.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

two stars of note in Mesa Of Lost Women - Dr. Aranya is played by Jackie Coogan (Uncle Fester himself!), and one of the Spider Women is Dolores Fuller (Bride Of The Monster, and former girlfriend of Ed Wood).

Yeah, the avant-garde flamenco guitar gets pretty grating.

This is one of those THEY SAVED HITLER'S BRAIN style hybrid movies. The stuff in the cantina was shot for a movie with a different plot that was abandoned. Ron Ormond created the mesa/mad doctor/spider stuff to pad it out to feature length.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
