50,000 dollars of the movie's budget went towards spiders. The producers offered to pay ten dollars each for live tarantulas, and handlers collected 5,000 of them. See more »
The stunt driver who hits Mayor Conner misjudged his speed and hit the brakes just as he made contact. Instead of the car taking out the mayor and then careening into the water tower, you can see it stop briefly and then accelerate again to get enough speed to take out the water tower. See more »
Scariest mainly because I am an Arachnophobe. Still this is a classic horror film. It drags a bit at the beginning but once the spiders organise into an army...this thing really takes off baby. Shatner is pretty entertaining as usual.
Things to watch for: -The spider siege on the town. -Shatner's line "She's smooth as a gnat's ass ain't she?" -Defending the Hotel. -The half eaten people. -The different ways the citizens die. -The Attack Shatner scene. -The classic ending.
