HOW TO MAKE A GIANT SPIDER
Sure, you can buy any number of spiders, large or small, funny or frightening, in any store selling Halloween goodies right now.

Don Dohler (b. 1946 - d. 2006), one of the original Monster Kids who went on to make professional low-budget monster movies like NIGHTBEAST and THE GALAXY INVADER, edited this magazine that covered the art of amateur imagi-movie making. Many articles were how-to's. This one shows you how to -- in detail -- make your own spider . . . any size you want!
