At a poultry farm just outside New Orleans, something has been stealing chickens, and a dim-witted Cajun farmer named Roux thinks a fox is to blame. His fellow farmhands make jokes about Roux’s ragged appearance; he looks even dumber than usual. Roux claims he was bitten by something in the night, and his back is itching badly. The source of the itch is a massive boil, but he’s afraid to tell the others about it for fear of further ridicule. Farm overseer jean Jacques, crusty but fair, comes to his defense and tells the other men to load up the delivery truck with eggs for its weekly run into the city. He sends Roux home to get some rest, but Roux’s got a better idea. He grabs his shotgun and heads out on his tractor looking for the fox.
Roux comes across a small fissure in the ground that’s emitting four-smelling gas. As he gets off his tractor to investigate, his boil starts to throb. Suddenly it bursts open and a blind albino spider emerges like a botfly. It squeals a high-pitched call, and as if in response, the earth begins to shake. The quake opens up an even larger crevice in the ground, and Roux hears a bone-chilling chittering sound: something much, much larger has answered the baby spider’s summons. Whatever made the sound yanks Roux and his tractor underground.
Back at the farmhouse, a baby spider slips into an egg carton moments before it’s loaded onto the delivery truck. The truck, packed with eggs, sets out for the city…
This might just be the Megashark vs Giant Octopus of next year.
