Very funny film from Melies has a man in bed trying to go to sleep when a large bug (perhaps a spider) walks over him so the man has to battle it. This is a very funny short, which lasts just a minute but most of that time you'll find yourself laughing. The ways the man tries to kill the bugs changes from one bug to the next and they keep getting funnier. That weird, fantasy like world of the director is certainly on display here and fans of the man will certainly want to check this one out.
