Are you terrified of spiders? Most people are. There’s something about those eight-legged creatures crawling on our faces and into our ears that scares the living daylight out of us. Some are even poisonous, which only heightens our anxiety.
Aside from the fact that there’s a psychological condition for the fear of spiders, there’s also a movie that came out in 1990 with the same name about South American killing spiders that hitch a ride in a coffin and start to multiply by the time they get to the U.S. When the movie came out, a lot of people’s nightmares began.
The Eight-Legged Project
Joshua Slice, an animator who has worked on films like Zootopia and Big Hero 6, decided to create a short animation about a spider named Lucas, and he got his nephew, also named Lucas to help him out with the voice acting.
