Hailing from the film with the same name, the Tarantula was the already oversized pet of Professor Deemer. In a fire accident, the spider eats a radioactive hormone, and escapes into the western countryside. It manages to kill and devour many people, including Professor Deemer. After a period of disbelief, the army finally comes to and tries to fight the villainous arachnid. They shoot it, and as ever, to no avail. They even try dynamite, but nothing seemed to work until the air force comes and bombs the creature, literally blowing it to pieces in a tragic death.
- The actually tarantula was a real live tarantula, it was moved along with small air jets.
- The air force commander was played by none other than Clint Eastwood in one of his earliest acting careers.
