Sven is a factory worker who is charged with the task of keeping his workplace free of spiders. Unfortunately, Sven suffered a harrowing incident as a child and is deathly afraid of them. As an adult however, he manages to overcome his fear and takes great delight in killing every spider he can find. After work, he meets a woman at a bar who pays him ten dollars to clean the spiders out of her parlor. When he arrives at her house, he realizes that the lady is actually a spider-woman who traps Sven inside of a gigantic web.
