Giant spiders have netted a web of fear over a small village in northeast India, with two people, one of them child, reportedly killed by their poison.
The hairy monsters, locals say, attacked them out of the blue during a local festival. Witnesses recall that swarms of eight-legged insects “suddenly descended from nowhere and started biting people.”
“The festive mood turned into panic,” local resident Jintu Gogoi told the Times of India. “People bumped into each other and tripped over empty benches trying to escape.”
The residents rushed to the local hospital. A middle-aged man and a teenage boy died right away, despite treatment by doctors.
Dozens of villagers suffered strong pain, nausea, and shock. One of the locals told The Times of India that after the bite his finger was black and swollen.
The villagers are now monitoring their mud-and-thatch huts round-the-clock. The spiders have not yet been identified so doctors cannot use anti-venom in treating bite victims. Scientists say the spiders resemble a previously unknown species of tarantula.
Officials advised locals to stay indoors and are considering spraying the town with insecticide.
Health officials, meanwhile, insist that people died rather due to improper medical treatment than because of the spiders’ poison.
Local witch doctors, they say, used razor blades to drain the wounds which triggered infection. Another seven people, timely treated by antibiotics, survived, Dr. Anil Phapowali at the local Sadiya town hospital told AP.
Other researchers doubt the victims were actually bitten by “monster spiders.” The bodies of both the people who died were traditionally cremated, so an autopsy was impossible. The scientist also pointed out the venom of tarantulas indigenous to the region is not fatal.

Yeah, great idea to piss off a massive angry spider by poking it with a stick!

Toxicity and aggression

Like practically all spiders apart from the Uloboridae, Sparassidae use venom to immobilise prey and to assist in digestion. They have been known to inflict defensive bites, but are not widely regarded as dangerous to healthy humans.[6] Huntsman spiders are widely considered beneficial because they feed on insect pests such as cockroaches.
There have been reports of members of various genera such as Palystes,[7] Neosparassus (formerly called Olios) and several others, inflicting bites. The effects vary, including local swelling and pain, sometimes with nausea, headache, vomiting, irregular pulse rate, and heart palpitations, indicating some systemic neurological effects, especially when the bites were severe or repeated. However, the formal study of spider bites is fraught with complications, including unpredictable infections, dry bites, shock, and nocebo effects. An investigation into spider bites in Australia, in which Sparassidae figured prominently, did not note any severe or unusual symptoms resulting from confirmed bites from some of the most notorious genera, particularly Neosparassus.

Man, that is fucked up, I can't believe they are considering spraying poison to kill them... humans always fear what they can't understand.

To answer your . It was "Kingdom of the Spiders" starring William Shatner... Movie was released in 1977.
