Did you know?

  • Mustard packs were crushed underfoot for the visual effect of squashing spiders. To achieve the sound of a spider being crushed two potato chips where crunched together.
  • Frank Marshall, long-time producer of many Spielberg films makes his directorial debut with this film.
  • Since spiders cannot be trained to act a certain way, hairdryers were used to get them to move in a specific direction.
  • The small spiders used in the film were a harmless species from New Zealand. However the giant spider was a bird-eating tarantula which can give a nasty bite to humans. Therefore the spiders were handled by famed entomologist Steven R. Kutcher.
