PG-13 07/20/1990 (US) ComedyHorror 1h 49m

Eight legs, two fangs, and an attitude.


A large spider from the jungles of South America is accidentally transported in a crate with a dead body to America where it mates with a local spider. Soon after, the residents of a small California town disappear as the result of spider bites from the deadly spider offspring. It's up to a couple of doctors with the help of an insect exterminator to annihilate these eight legged freaks.
