After 20 years in a hospital for the mentally ill suffering from schizophrenia, Dennis ‘Spider’ Cleg is released to live in a boarding house for recovering mental patients on the outskirts of London. Returning to his childhood haunts, Spider starts to relive the events that led to his madness.
An un-cinematic film from an un-cinematic novel, Spider is a highly skilled piece of filmmaking that seems determined to leave its audience frustrated and unsatisfied.
