No. 23 – Tarantula!

Simon Davis’ Sinister Dexter cover for prog 1344 (2003) v Tarantula (1955) theatrical poster by Reynold Brown (1917–1991), who also painted the posters featured in HoH No. 24 – Ben-Hur and No. 189 – Attack of the 50 Foot Woman!

The poster, featuring a rather shortchanged spider with only two eyes instead of the usual eight [a detail not lost on Mr. Davis] and carrying a woman in its fangs, does not represent any scene in the final film.
