Earth vs. the Spider

Synopsis: A shy, obsessive comic book fan gets injected with an experimental serum of a lab that is studying how to give humans the abilities of spiders. At first he develops minor abilities such as increased strength, which allows him to fight local criminals and bullies, thus living out his dream of being a superhero, and impressing his attractive next-door neighbor. Things start to get more odd when he is able to shoot webs out of his abdomen. Then he loses control over the force with which he applies his increasingly deadly abilities, as well as his judgment to discern between criminals and jokesters. His dream becomes a nightmare when he starts growing large spider body parts, he's in constant pain, and he develops a nearly insatiable hunger. A detective with a traumatized wife begins investigating when bodies covered in cobwebs and spider venom start piling up.

You're a good security cop

at an important lab.

You're good at your job.

If she doesn't like that,

that's her problem. You're a good kid.

I'm damned proud of you.

-So any action today?

-Oh, yeah.

A tech is selling plutonium to Arabs

in lab 5. I got illicit meth in 7.

And in 9, Dr. Carson's taking

the longest dump in history.

Poor little bastards. Every day

getting sliced and diced. For what?

Hey, hey, hey. There's Hairy Larry.

Hairy Larry. Nick, you kill me.

That baby's new.

They must have installed that

last night.

I wonder what it's for.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

That has got to hurt.

-What did they do that for?

-I don't know.

-Larry must have something special.

-Yeah, makes him invincible.

That's why they pump the others

with his mojo juice.

Quentin. Hey, Quentin!

-What time is it?

-Almost 6.

We kept the place safe

one more day.

What is with you and these comics?

My kid used to read that crap,

but he was 1 0.

I don't know.

I guess they're like dreams.

Colour dreams.

There's one guy in the whole world

that has something different.

And there comes this moment when

someone needs exactly what he has...

...and he saves them.

He stops the killer and he's a hero.

When you read it,

you can imagine you're the guy.

I mean, if you had something special.

-Don't you have dreams?


Not about guys dressed up like bugs.

They're about Stella Stevens.


-Before your time.

They're at it late in Lab 1 0.

Are you ready for one last round?

You mind finishing up?

l'll meet you here.

No problem, Nick.

Attention all personnel.

We are closing in five minutes.



Nick! Turn around! Turn around!

-Let the real cops handle this.

-My partner's in there.

-Take no prisoners. Go!


No! Nick! No, no, no. Nick.
