** There's a reason for this: The movie was filmed in Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, but only if they didn't use any studio lights, as that would accelerate the growth of microscopic organisms that would deteriorate the cave's structure much faster.

* GenreSavvy: Averted. You'd think Mike would be this, given that he seems to be a movie buff, but that doesn't happen.

* FollowTheLeader: 1950s and big bugs and giant arachnids kind of go together once ''Film/{{Them}}'' came out. And on all the ads the film became "The Spider" once TheFly saw success.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassNormal: Mr. Kingman as he always maintains a cool head and has a logical scientific explanation for every circumstance. He proves to be the real hero of the film in not only being willing to fight the spider and being the one who devises the solution to permanently kill it.

** Unusually for a movie of this type, Cagle ''does'' take the appropriate actions for a giant spider outbreak - even calling in a tanker truck of [[=DDT=]] and gas masks - on the say-so of the kids' science teacher Mr. Kingman. Neither he nor the half-dozen deputies and insecticide techs take it seriously, until one of them dies...

* PassingNotesInClass: There's a pretty typical example between the two teenage leads during a tedious physics class. The teacher catches them, although he doesn't ask them to read it out loud.
