A giant, deadly poisonous spider hitches a ride (inside the coffin of a deceased photographer) from its home in the jungles of Venezuela to a small California town, where it finds a home in a barn and starts to breed hundreds of tiny poisonous spiders. The barn happens to belong to Dr. Ross Jennings (Daniels), a big city guy newly arrived in "Canaima, California." Scientific Dr. James Atherton (Sands) helps Jennings discover the truth, and the local exterminator Delbert McClintock (Goodman) has a go, but ultimately Jennings alone must face the threat and protect his family and the town -- no small task, since he suffers from arachnophobia (fear of spiders). This 1990 comedy-horror film is more entertaining than scary, unless the viewer happens to have a virulent case of the phobia that more Americans reportedly suffer from than fear of death.
