Spyderwoman: A Modern, Totally Crazy, Miami-Made B-Movie

Spyderwoman, Spyderwoman: Does Whatever
Dating in Miami is hard enough, even if you aren't a venomous mythical jungle monster who has escaped from a laboratory. But in Spyderwoman, a new movie shot and set in Miami, this is exactly the raw deal faced by Taharai, a half-woman, half-spider (err...spyder?) hybrid from the Amazon.

So if you've always wanted to like "Skinemax," but felt that the plot and the sex scenes would get in the way, have we got the movie for you!

Here's the trailer:

"Mario...get the darts!"

The movie is based on a novel by Teresita "Angela" Terga. Or should we say two novels. Though the novels have yet to be published, there is this description on Terga's website:

"There are two versions of Spiderwoman Taharai. One is dystopian in which the tale of Taharai is told in the future when the survivors are building a neo world based on the principles of Shambala. The non-dystopian version only tells the story of Taharai."

The closest we could come to tracking down a copy of the novel(s) is issue one of Kill of the Spyderwoman, an erotic comic book from 1995 that probably has little to do with this particular motion picture:

Smoking (and Spyderwomen) Kills
So, on which version of the novel is the film based? Let's look for signs of dystopia in the trailer:

Nothing definitive yet. The trailer isn't clear on if this guy has just dropped on his foot the abundant rations provided to him each week by a caring utopian state or if he is being hunted down by a bloodthirsty beast in heels like whoa.

Who knows where Spyderwoman got this bloody piece of meat or what she plans to do with it? Eat it? Give it to the hungry? Either way, George Bernard Shaw once asked, "While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered beasts, how can we expect any ideal conditions on this earth?"

This FBI person (she has a badge and everything) is showing where the Spyderwoman's victims were found. As if traffic on the causeways weren't bad enough already.
