I watched it as a teenager and while I don't think I was quite like my other MTV generation I remember being bored and not liking it. Hell I barely remember any of it. So I'm curious if it is worth a re-watch or not. I faintly remember one reviewer praising it and I have no clue who it was.

I think it's an absolute classic. The atmosphere is subtle, but beyond bizarre. You were probably just too young when you watched it.

That's a great film!  Totally demented but funny, maybe even slightly touching for a moment.  I can't say anything bad about it.

It's got Lon Chaney Jr.,Mantan Moreland in a cameo (getting his ear cut off!),and an early role for Sid Haig!
Plus cannabilism!
Lon also sings the opening theme!
I love it!

I have it on DVD.  It's worth seeing, but it's not the kind of movie I will watch repeatedly.  There are other "cult classics" that I would choose to watch before this one.

Ozzymandias speaks: One of my favorites. The humor is a little strange, but that for me is what makes it fun. I also love Jill Banner as Virginia. She is also in another film I like The President's Analyst.


Ozzymandias has spoken!!!

I like this one a lot, but if you didn't like it at all then, I don't see why you would like it any better now.

Saw this movie on TCM and I love it I believe this movie is where Rob Zombie got his idea for House Of 1,000 Corpses.

SPIDER BABY walks the line of horror and comedy.
So does films like the EVIL DEAD 2-enjoy it-it is what it is.

Lon Chaney saying "There's a full moon tonight" makes it for me. Smile

    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.
