The Spider Woman (1944)

The Spider Woman (1944)

Directed by: Roy William Neill

Starring: Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce, Gale Sondergaard

More Sherlock Holmes! WOO HOO! FUCK YEAH GUYS SITTING AROUND IN PARLOURS TALKING ABOUT EXOTIC POISON!

Holmes is confused by the most recent series of murders, where the victims all apparently committed suicide… after they had gone to bed for the night. He dresses up like sheikh to try and trap the lady mastermind behind the deaths so he can figure out how she does it, and they play a deadly game of cat and mouse. Also, there’s a scene where Dr. Watson makes duck noises and calls an old man rotting meat. Oh, Dr. Watson, you idiot manchild you.

I’m gonna go ahead and spoil the ending of this movie, so if you really care, stop reading. Okay, is everyone else gone? Good. So the way she kills people is she sends a rare spider through people’s windows, who’s venom makes people jump in front of busses. I don’t know how that’s supposed to work, but that’s the plan. Also, she uses a pygmy from the circus to drop the spider in. Yeah. Pygmies and impossible spiders. I love Sherlock Holmes.
