          "In the Arizona desert, Professor Gerald Deemer is experimenting with
      growth hormones in the hopes of finding a way to increase the world's food
      supply. His partner in the project was recently found dead in the desert,
      suffering from a disease that normally takes years to advance but in his
      case seems to have afflicted him in only a few days. The local doctor, Matt
      Hastings, is puzzled by the strange case and with Deemer's recently arrived
      - and very pretty - assistant Stephanie Clayton tries to figure out what is
      going on. When cattle remains are found in the countryside, the evidence
      points to a giant tarantula as the culprit."
