When a man doesn't come home one night his daughter and her boyfriend go out searching and encounter a giant spider in a cave near the man's wrecked car. Coming back with the Sheriff, the spider is seemingly killed by DDT spraying, and the body then hauled for storage in the high school gymnasium. However, a loud dose of rock music by a teenage garage band revives the arachnid and sends it rampaging through the town. Written by

When the exterminators are shown spraying DDT at the spider in another split-scene shot, the men are on the left and the spider at the right, with the two scenes separated by a painting of a stalagmite. But the heavy spray of DDT stops at the split screen, though in real life the spray would have been seen shooting past the stalagmite into the right-hand portion of the scene. See more
[to a deputy after finding a desiccated body in a cave
Uh, you get back to town and make up a coroner's report. Just put down Jack Flynn as the name and the cause of death... uh...
It was a spider drained all the liquid out of his body.
Just put down "cause unknown" and let the coroner worry about the rest. That's the trouble with you eggheads - you jump to conclusions! I know what I see and I see a dead man, but, uh, I don't see any spider.
