"We've been informed by a tipster who wishes to remain anonymous that a remake for Jack Hill's Spider Baby could be in the cards. Apparently the remake, which was scripted by Adam Turner, has been shopped around since all the way back in 2004, but word has it that the film could very well still be in the cards - let's hope not. The original from 1954, which pretty much inspired films like Texas Chainsaw and House of 1000 Corpses, starred Sid Haig, Lon Chaney Jr., Carol Ohmart, Quinn K. Redeker, Beverly Washburn and Jill Banner. In a dilapidated rural mansion, the last generation of the degenerate, inbred Merrye family lives with the inherited curse of a disease that causes them to mentally regress from the age of 10 or so on as they physically develop. The family chauffeur looks out for them and covers up their indiscretions. Trouble comes when greedy distant relatives and their lawyer arrive to dispossess the family of its home."
