Leaving the coffin, it mates with local spiders, and the resulting new breed of spider starts killing off the residents of the town, one by one. Dr. Jennings suffers from arachnophobia, as does his son, making his investigation into the deaths of most of his patients difficult and uncomfortable. Delbert McClintock suffers from other issues, but not fear of spiders. The two investigate the deaths, eventually discovering the nesting place of the spiders.
