Horror film: a truck carrying toxic waste crashes near a small Arizona mining town. Its contents contaminate a pond, creating mutant grasshoppers born to the insects that feed there. These in turn are fed to various arachnids at the nearby 'Exotic Spider Farm', whose inhabitants grow to a terrifying size and begin feeding on the local population.
