* FollowTheLeader: ''Film/KingdomOfTheSpiders''.
* {{Narm}}: The climactic battle with the queen. Where to begin? The fact that the spider somehow manages to tackle the hero onto his back MULTIPLE TIMES? The fact that the spider survives countless injuries, any one of which should've killed it? The fact that the hero rigs together a flamethrower to battle it and it still manages to thrash him? The way the spider clearly toys with him, leaving him pinned under debris and ascends his leg just so it can stare him down, eye to eye? The fact that, once defeated, it explodes kaijin-style? Or maybe the fact that the climax is simply a man with severe arachnophobia battling a spider in his basement, and the screenwriters used every contrivance in the book to make it dramatic.

* NightmareRetardant: If you don't actually have arachnophobia, the movie can come off as remarkably dumb.

* SpecialEffectFailure: In the shower scene it's extremely obvious that the actress is wearing a fleshtone bodysuit as one shot is from above clearly showing the fastening at the back of her neck.

* TearJerker: Margaret's death. The fact that her last moment was speaking to a picture of her deceased husband, wishing he'd been at the party earlier in the day, before getting bitten.

* NightmareFuel: The game over screen for the game adaptation. A picture is displayed of your character where he's basically been overrun by spiders, and has webs in his nose. It's pretty freaky as a kid.
** There are two versions of the poster for the film - one with a small spider dangling in front of a full moon, seen on the main article, and one without the spider (as seen [[http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2497616896/tt0099052 here]]). The reason for the latter version is that the former ''freaked'' people out with it's subtlety. Well done!
