|Notable appearances:||Spiders (2000)|
Arachnids, commonly referred to as spiders, are a class (Arachnida) of joint-legged invertebrate animals in the subphylum Chelicerata. All arachnids have eight legs, although in some species the front pair may convert to a sensory function.
Various breeds of spiders, particularly tarantulas and orb-weaver spiders were featured in the 2002 film Eight Legged Freaks. In the film, a canister of toxic chemicals spills into a lake, affecting the local wildlife. Arachnologist Joshua Taft unwittingly fed these crickets to his spiders at Taft's Exotic Spider Farm in Prosperity, Arizona, and as a result, they grew to prodigious size. As the spiders continued to grow, they terrorized the town, killing dozens of citizens. Sheriff Samantha Parker put out an emergency broadcast alerting everyone in town to take shelter at the Prosperity Mall. The spiders attacked the mall as well, forcing the survivors to make their way underground into a vein that led to the McCormick Mines. Here they found the queen spider, who was three times larger than the others. Owner Chris McCormick got the others to safety then baited the queen into following him, at which point he set off a spark, igniting the methane fumes from the mine. The explosion killed the queen spider, as well as any others that were still inside the mines.
