The 50 Worst Special Effects In Movie History

46. Attack of the Spider Woman

Movie: Spookies (1986)

Everything about the botched 1986 horror flick Spookies simultaneously reeks of stupidity and awfulness. Take your pick: There are the muck monsters that inexplicably fart like they've eaten nothing but beans for a month, the climactic Grim Reaper that's little more than a prop you would've seen in a Halloween store back in the '80s, or the buffoonish, comic relief character Rich, a jackass who wears a T-shirt with his own picture on it and plays with a hand puppet.

At least Rich gets killed off in a grandiose, albeit horribly staged, manner: The Spider Woman, one of the film's various monsters, sucks Rich's life clean out of his body, leaving only a deflated dummy, not actor Peter Iasillo Jr., slumped against a large web.
