Lon Chaney, Jr. "Spider Baby"

Ever heard Lon Chaney, Jr.’s opening credits performance in the 1964 oddly weird cheapie, Spider Baby? The song is actually kind of catchy, in a real dumb way, but the wolf howls and overall ridiculousness expose how low rent the production is. Lon actually “sings” better than he’s ever acted, though he wasn’t bad in this one. You might be able to watch the whole movie in segments at YouTube. It’s a must-see for Sid Haig fans.
