Along with Aron Eli Coleite, Jesse Alexander has written what are arguably the two best episodes of Star Trek: Discovery thus far, "The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry," and "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad." But before his turn at Trek, Alexander's very first movie was the B-Movie homage, Eight Legged Freaks.

In this episode of Stage Nine, Mike and John take a look at Alexander's first movie, which he co-wrote with director Ellory Elkayem. We discuss the film's light-hearted tone, the contributions of the cast, and John's fear of spiders.
