Hell, I can live with that.

It's the little ones that crawl into bed with you and give you some flesh eating illness that scare the crap out of me!

I can shoot at those big ones!

I didn't know you had hobo spiders in California.

Picture of a (small) bite:

So back in the 1950's one of the football coaches from my small Texas town went to Hollywood to try his hand at acting.  Coach Dooge.  The only screen credit he got was being eaten by a rather large spider (ant?) in the movie "Them".  I remember sitting in the audience at the old-timey movie theater laughing and yelling "Look out Coach Dooge!!" just as the creature got its jaws around him.  I fervently pray this movie should be better...

I feel so robbed, I had an idea for a movie like this.

Basically eco terrorists and tree huggers allow uncheck evolution in the rainforest that allows the development of huge spiders.

Either hippie tree huggers or south american drug smugglers, I hadn't decided which, inadvertantly introduce them to Kalifornia. I also had a illegal immigrant introduction.

Anway to baby critters fully mature in their new liberal surroundings and begin wreaking havoc on the local Berkeley populous, who of course banned any practical means of personal protection long ago.

Scenes in my mind:

Berekley elite blasting huge spider with 10 rounds to no avail and screaming "Damn 10 round clips" as he attempts to flee.

House full of hippies under Aracnid seige, "Hey what happen to all those army guns we voted to get rid of?"

South Central Crips and Bloods spraying 10 foot hairy critters with Tec 9s to no avail.


The "slightly eccentric" former military guy up in the mountains with SHTF stores who is piling up dead spiders with serious firepower.

Coulda been good.
