[Update: The more one reads about this, the more suspicious the claims about this chimp seem. Obviously I’m no primatologist, but I believe that a chimp reaching the age of 80 would be equivalent to a human living well over 100, & apparently this isn’t even the first time that this claim has been made about an aged chimp in a sanctuary.]
In memory of actor & accent coach Robert Easton, also passed on last week…
Monster-of-the-Week: …the nod goes to the largest and most formidable of the title invaders in The Giant Spider Invasion, Bill Rebane’s Wisconsin-made (& thus, perhaps not coincidentally, very cheesy) drive-in fave of 1975.
This arachnid, who devours Easton as a lecherous farmer, was played by a Volkswagen in a spider suit, driven backwards—the taillights served as its red glowing eyes.
