A woman finds out that she is a black widow spider on her wedding night?

I saw this movie at a Halloween party in 1988. It was not a high budget affair, and it's possible that it was a segment in a TV series, a la " Alfred Hitchcock Presents."

The setting  was contemporary (1970s-80s).  The only detail I remember is that at the end, a woman wearing a wedding dress covered in blood confronts her mother, screaming, "Why didn't you tell me!?" Apparently, mom knew that the women of her family were black widow spiders, and the bride ate her husband on their wedding night.

I have searched high and low all over the internet 4 years... Can anyone help?

"Tales from the Darkside" (TV anthology series) Season 3, Episode 6  
episode: "Black Widows" (Nov. 2, 1986)

From IMDb review:
In this episode, we meet a poor girl and her mom living in a trailer park. The girl wants to get married, but her mother never approves. When she does get married, she learns the secret of her family and why she never met her father: She's a black widow spider (and I suppose a Black Widow). Once she marries him and consummates her love, she kills him but has a pregnant stomach to show for it.
