Spider Baby

Spider Baby (aka The Maddest Story Ever Told, 1968, directed by Jack Hill). "...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."

I saw this on Turner Classic Movies (yes!) a while back. An amazing film. Besides Lon Chaney, the stars include Sid Haig and Mantan Moreland.
