But when an accident in the lab leads to the serum infecting a tarantula, the situation suddenly becomes much more serious. Escaping into the desert, the deadly giant tarantula starts hunting human prey, and it's up to square-jawed doctor Matt Hastings (John Agar) and Reemer's assistant Stephanie (Mara Corday) to track it down and destroy it.

Special Features:
  • Super 8 version (8 minutes)
  • Normal 8 version (3 minutes)
  • Interview with Jack Arnold (26 minutes)
  • Original German opening (Deutscher Originalvorspann)

And why can't we get this wonderful mid-50s thriller available in the U.S.? (the country in which is was made.) Waaaaaaa! Guess it's time to pony up for a region-free player.

Will this blu-ray contain a commentary or featurette of Clint Eastwood discussing his role/participation in Tarantula?

I hope this opens the floodgates for many other 50's sci-fi to make their way to Blu-ray.

They also have "The Mole People" on Blu-ray in Germany! Damn you Universal, why do foreign countries get American made films BEFORE we do. Would love to see them re-release their Classic Sci-fi Ultimate Collections 1 and 2 on Blu-ray ! I am also waiting on a Blu-ray release of their entire "Legacy Collections" of their Universal classic horror films.

First day for me!! I would LOVE to see Warner release THEM! on blu ray (and finally in its 1.66 widescreen format). I am thinking this film was released just as films were transitioning to widescreen (although it works fine full frame).

i bought the german " the Mole people" and "the Monolith Monsters",both are region B and have a wonderfull transfer!
Will surely buy "Tarantula" asap it is released,plz remember that each of these is limited to only 1000 copies!
The above 2 titles come in a AR of 2:00:1 and while i had these in standard academy ratio,they were actually also in the wider format but only shown at the time at selected theatres!

"THE MOLE PEOPLE"....So happy I checked out these comments. Was hoping for the guilty pleasure to show up. Never would have thought about it being in Germany!

Thanks!
