I am sorry but this movie was "God awful" I really get tired of people justifying their bad purchases with positive remarks like, “It is psychedelic, man” I have watched two Jess Franco movies and I will agree he is crazy I will not say he is a good or creative director. He is a bad director and I have no earthy idea why anyone would let him direct after this disaster. I bought this and the other Franco movie for the nudity but this one was even worse than the other. Bauer’s rockets in no way saves this mess..

"If you are tired of the same old same old, take a look at director Jess Franco's Mari-Cookie and the Killer Tarantula! I had tried some of Franco's movies from the 1970s (the ones with Christopher Lee as Dracula and Klaus Kinski as Jack the Ripper) but this is nothing like that. This is one psychedelic trip to a new world of wry comedy and unbounded imagination. Michelle Bauer is more beautiful now than she ever was -- even better than she was in Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers -- and Linnea Quigley is exquisite. Lina Romay proves that she is best acting talent that Eurotrash has exported in the last 35 years. This simply has to be seen to be believed. This is not for the weak-hearted though. There's a lot of nudity and some creepy spiders but what's wrong with seeing a lot of beautiful women in a very funny film?"
Wow! Psychedelia for a new century! Great Franco/Bauer Team

"I am a late-comer to the world of Jess Franco. I had only heard bad things about his films. When I came to the United States I was suprised to find out that he was still making films. I though he stopped in the 1980's. But I find his new production company is still making them fast and furiously. "Mari Cookie" is very funny and sexy and it has wonderful music by lots of cool Spanish bands. "Mari Cookie" must be like a 90 minute trip on LSD with the rock music blaring in the background. I hope that Franco works more with Michelle Bauer because she is an exciting find. Many people probably think that Franco and Bauer are relics from the '80s but both are still vibrant and Michelle is more beautiful and talented than ever! I highly recommend this sarcastic sexy comedy!"
Flawed, but not entirely so!

"I paid full price for this video, not the $9.99 Amazon is asking, so I think those of you purchasing this DVD are getting a much better bargain that I did. Basically this is a story about a lesbian spider woman who preys mostly on other women. Some of it is surprisingly erotic and very creative. A lot of the humor is lame, and I wasn't impressed with the overall production quality. Still, it's got its good moments, and you really can't go wrong for a mere ten bucks! It's campy, but if you like campy-erotic then this one's well worth it!"
