We have no doubt the insect world teems with unsettling images, at least when you’re up close or deep in the dirt. But spiders? Hell, you see those monsters in the corner of your bedroom! And forget the fact that they’re handy neighbors to have around, chewing up mosquitoes, flies, and other pests with ease.

The Fact Is a Spider Doesn’t Tell the Difference Between Your Skin and an Insect

Brown Recluses, Black Widows, Wolf Spiders, they’ll attack you if you give them a chance to. It’s that simple. And the fact is a brown recluse could easily kill you if you’re not quick to get your feet going, get into a car, and head for the nearest emergency medical center. Their saliva’s pretty close to the acid blood of Ellen Ripley’s Aliens (no joke).

So it’s no wonder that some of the worst and vile horrors of yesterday’s golden cinema monster movies still ring true today, especially when you check out these latest viral videos of some of the freakiest real spiders (well, one of them is a clip from a video game!) you’d ever not want to see:
