The Classic Horrors Club Podcast EP 58: Back to the Drive-In Pt. 1

It's that time of year and your backyard isn't the only place where the creepy crawlies come out at night. On a hot summer night in 1958, the South 29 Drive-In in Charlotte, NC, was invaded by giant spiders, preying mantises, and crabs.


Through the magic of modern technology, Jeff and Rich travel not only halfway across the country, but also 64 years into the past, to attend the drive-in and watch big monsters on the big screen: Tarantula (1956), The Deadly Mantis (1957), and Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957.)


Will they survive? Will you, when you listen to this month's episode of The Classic Horrors Club Podcast? You also don't want to miss our video companion on YouTube, especially this month, because if you like hearing the sounds of the drive-in, you're going to love seeing the sights...
