* Scott's battle with the spider. Even though the film was made on a shoestring budget, the scenes with the spider are very, very creepy. It is indeed very scary even over fifty years later. However, the whole appearance of the spider was very, very creepy. From when it first appeared crawling out of the crate to when after the basement floods, it tramples on top of the matchbox that Scott now lives in.
