120-second video pitch for "Spider Eaters"
In a last-ditch effort to save their failing relationship, Allison and Bobby embark on a spider-eating adventure into the remote Australian Outback, accompanied by a "Strange Foods" television crew.
Their trip coincides with the arrival of a mysterious and eco-conscious spider fanatic, as well as the spiders' own violent retaliation -- turning the "tables" on the hapless tourists.

"The snack that bites back..."
"This is a unique idea set in an interesting locale that weaves a distinctive lore throughout the narrative."
"The very familiar sub-genre of nature revolting against man has not been explored in some time, and this script does a great job of updating familiar tropes."
"This script was well plotted and paced with organic uses of lore
coming out of the Australian setting."
"The world of extreme eating has not been explored in horror
and seems poised to be exploited."
"Good set pieces like the bus crash and climactic explosion give the film scope, while imagery like the cocooned spider fields can bring KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS-like imagery into the modern day."
"Preying on the fear of spiders, the writer sets up several great scares, like getting spiders in your mouth or being attacked on the toilet."
"Professionally written, the imagery jumps off the page;
this is a strong contender."
