While there really are species of spiders that live in colonies, none of these are male-dominated colonies, nor do they have a singular "queen" like ants or bees. Another point in this favor is that the reason common arachnids and other creatures that use an exoskeleton are not the size of houses is that they would collapse under their own weight. The scene at the beginning where the scientists use a numbing agent to collect specimans, would have resulted in quite a few spider bodies that were missing legs. Dropping a tarantula a distance of more than two feet causes it to shatter. These spiders fell from a tree easily one hundred feet tall. In short, none would have lived. Also, insects and other bugs breathe through their skin. Only in the distant past was there sufficient oxygen for giant insects to exist. The General is only about the size of a goliath bird eater, one of the largest known Taratunla species, only beat by the huntsman in leg span, look up pictures. See more »

Dr. Ross Jennings is a renowned doctor from the big city who relocates to a small town in the country. Not only does he not fit in with the local residents, but he also has an uncontrollable fear of spiders which are prevalent in the surrounding area. To make matters worse, a new, lethal breed of spider has made its way from South America to their hometown, and produced a far more deadly breed that's slowly taking over their once peaceful little community. Exciting, creepy thriller with first-rate special effects, hair-raising chills, and an excellent cast. Not for the squeamish or anyone with the titular fear, especially at the film's nail-biting finale. ***
