** Speaking of the spider webs in the movie, it should be noted that the squared orb webs (named like that since the main part is more like a square than an actual orb) found both in the Venezuelan jungle AND Dr. Jennings' barn respectively are nearly the size of an adult Human... and this was BEFORE the discovery of the Darwin's Bark Spider in Madagascar!

** The General actually hitched a ride in the coffin of the photographer, which means it had to feed itself in order to survive the trip to the mainland while sealed in the coffin. Combine that with the knowledge of HOW spiders feed in general...

* There's something incredibly messed up about the insinuation that the General's venom is so powerful that it [[BodyHorror rapidly speeds up]] the decomposition of victims of its bite. Sure, Manley the photographer was annoying, but for his body to be shipped back home looking like THAT?? Brrrr...

* Should I mention that the killer spiders are also capable of jumping, much like the common Jumping Spiders?

** Talk about the Ultimate Spider; the General's the size of a tarantula, they can jump like Jumping Spiders and also has their eyes, they can build webs the size of a full grown adult and their venom is so potent it makes the venom of the Black Widow, the Sidney Funnel-Web and the Brazilian Wandering Spider look like a harmless sting from a wasp in comparison. Couple that with the aggression...
* When the entymologist investigates the spider's nest in Dr. Jenning's barn, he is amazed at the work they put in building up the webs. Cue a shot of a few dead animals stuck in the spider's webs which the spiders have fed on, including a rat... and a cat!

* At one point, the main characters find a couple dead in their couch in front of their TV with a bucket of popcorn. One leans in to inspect the faces of one of the corpses.... AND A SPIDER CRAWLS OUT OF THE SKULL'S NOSTRIL. Jesus, talk about a grossout.

* The spider's first victim has the large spider crawling into the tent of the photographer and underneath the blanket. When he tries to investigate the creeper by grabbing it, the General spider immediately bites down before retreating back out of the tent.

* '''[[BigBad The General]]''', period. The main spider that's roughly the size of a baseball mitt, and has an extraordinary lethal bite. The General is equal in size to the largest Tarantula specimens found in South America!
