Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me
When I was a kid I heard about a movie called 'Kiss of the Spider Woman' and thought it was an awesome fifties-era noirish thriller about some sleek sexy seductress killing off wealthy old men while they slept. I imagined it'd be one of those kitschy over-dramatic black and white flicks you caught on Saturday afternoons on your local UHF station, playing right after the weekly Vincent Price and Godzilla movies.
Then someone told me what the movie was really about. Turns out it has absolutely nothing to do with a sleek sexy seductress killing wealthy old men while they slept. Nothing at all.
I still feel robbed to this day.
