12. Jack Hill‘s Spider Baby (1967)

AKA The Maddest Story Ever Told. AAKA Cannibal Orgy. AAAKA I Know Where Lon Chaney Jr. Sweated in the Summer of 1964. This ancestor of the American Domesticated Cannibal tradition offers a thrilling look at the later Lon Chaney Jr, early work of Sig Haig, and some deeply troubling portrayals of African Americans and rape victims. Yikes! It’s Jack Hill’s perpetually disturbing horror-canonical Spider Baby!
