A Part of MUSIC BOX OF HORRORS 2021 

A movie that's a proven favorite with those deathly afraid of our eight-legged friends the arachnids, Arachnophobia is a creepy, crawly comedy best watched with a can of bug spray at the ready. When a giant Venezuelan spider discovered by entomologist Dr. James Atherton (Julian Sands) finds its way to a rural California town, it draws the residents into a web of hair-raising horror. The new town doctor, Ross Jennings (Jeff Daniels), deathly afraid of spiders, is the lucky host to the foreign arachnid, who takes up residence in his barn and mates with a local female spider. And when their offspring hatch it'll be up to the idiosyncratic bug slayer Delbert McClintock (John Goodman) to save the day...
