He eventually realises that [[spoiler:it's somehow the same spider that started his arachnophobia when he was a child]].

In reality, more people are killed each year by champagne corks or falling vending machines than spiders. A rather unimpressive record compared to, say, {{bears|AreBadNews}}, [[NeverSmileAtACrocodile crocodiles]], [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes venomous snakes]], or even canines or sharks. However, those animals all have two eyes, internal skeletons and red blood. When it comes to narrative effect, otherness is always scarier than practical threat.
