Spiders have been known to cling to grapes when they are removed from their tropical climate. Sometimes these resilient spiders make it all the way to the final vendor. In this case, they end up inside John's head!
A young jogger named Jason is out doing what he loves, running cross- country. Unknown to him, the runner trespasses into a private property, and is soon lured into a self-sense of security... See full summary »
John hates his job. He works long-hours for little pay, and is waiting to receive his bonus and finally quit. Problem is he works for Dave. Throwing around buzzwords to appear competent, Dave spends the rest of his time playing bad music, reading fake emails and eating grapes. As a token of appreciation, Dave offers his grapes to John who brings them home not realizing a spider is clinging onto the bunch. Unfortunately for John that night the spider crawls into his head. With time ticking until his bonus is owed and a head full of spiders, it's only a matter of time before John gets an eye-opening experience.Written by
Spider scenes were originally slated for shooting during May but were pushed 3 months because the cold spring in Toronto made finding enough spiders difficult. See more »

Siman Chang was credited as the location manager but was actually the son of the Dewey College building manager. He was very helpful in finding a Sushi Restaurant to cater for the last day of the shoot. See more »

This deeply unpleasant little short is a huge no no for arachnophobes!
It tells the story of John, a long suffering employee working under a horrific boss (We've all had at least one like him). After an unpleasant encounter with a spider he begins to experience some nasty symptoms.
This short is very well shot, extremely atmospheric and does exactly what it sets out to do. It gets under your skin, makes you feel for the protagonist and hate the antagonist successfully.
Even as someone with no fear of spiders a couple of sequences were very uncomfortable. Just imagine seeing through the eyes of someone with spiders in their eyes! Nuff said.
Very watchable and damn fine effort.
Very well made
Finale is a bit of an anti-climax
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Peeling grapes is surely a sign of a serial killer
