Trivia: This film has some notable connections to the comic-book company Marvel. To start, is was released the same summer as the 2002 film "Spider-Man." The Sheriff's family has the last name "Parker," which is the same last name as "Peter Parker", aka Spider-Man. At one point, the mayor asks what attacked, to which another character replies "A spider, man!" as a cheeky reference to the character. And Scarlett Johansson plays a fairly major role in the film... and she would later go on to play Natasha Romanov in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, who goes by the codename "Black Widow " which is a breed of spider.

Question: Do the spiders grow big because of the food that they are fed, or because of the chemicals spilled in the water?

Answer: Both! The owner of the spider farm was feeding the spiders bugs from the water that had the chemical spill in it. The bugs were contaminated with the chemical, thus contaminating the spiders. Note: The man who owned the spider farm had no idea about the contaminated water.
