A black hole hits North Wisconsin and opens a door to other dimensions. Giant 15 meter spiders emerge from it, who have an appetite for human flesh! Dr. Jenny Langer and Dr. Vance from the NASA try to save the world. Written by

Filmed on the kinda budget that Ed Wood might have envied (but not too much), half of this film is devoted to the mini-Spider Invasion, and there are a few mildly chilling moments. Why they're coming out of a black hole is anybody's guess, but no doubt it made sense to someone at the time. But then the giant spiders/badly-disguised cars start pouring forth, and you find yourself not-so-inexplicably cheering for them to chow down on the bunch of Wisconsin "rednecks" that infest this film more thoroughly and foully than the poor aggrieved spiders. Only for those with a strong stomach. Not for spiders, but for poorly sketched one-dimensional characters.
