Spiders, Part 1: The Golden Lake (Die Spinnen, 1. Teil - Der Goldene See)

Filled with excitement and adventure, it tells the story of a brave explorer who is questing for the fabulous Incan diamond. To get it though, he must keep ahead of the powerful Spider cult, who want it for their own evil purposes. The episodes were originally titled "The Golden Lake" and "The Diamond Ship." Many of the techniques and production designs Lang experimented with in this aborted series, he later refined in his classic Dr. Mabuse films. ~ Sandra… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's apparent that Lang was enjoying himself on this production, and the fact that he returned to the genre forty years later is also telling."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Inventive silent adventure."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"Lang made the story exuberant and exotic."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
