Trivia: If a tarantula were to ever grow to the gargantuan size that it does in this film, it would resemble a huge furball. The filmmakers were aware of this, but for obvious reasons decided to tone down the amount of hair. (00:56:35)
Trivia: The film originally featured the working title "Arac Attack." ("Arac" being a shortened version of "Arachnid", a class of animals that spiders belong to) However, following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and rising tensions in the Middle East, the original title was dropped in many countries because producers felt "Arac" sounded too similar to "Iraq", and they didn't want to have any social or political implications in the title. (However, the film was released with the original title in some territories).
