Lake Vistonida is home to a unique ecosystem and the local climate can be described as mid-Mediterranean. Although this really is a freak phenomenon, I’m willing to bet you can’t buy a can of Raid for miles.

Locals claim the massive thick web was built virtually over one night. They just woke up and it was there, an entire coast line and everything along it, completely blanketed.
Birds fly over a 1000m long spider web near Xanthi in Greece today. Warmer weather conditions in Greece and an increase in the mosquito population are thought to have contributed to the rise in the number of spiders. Jo pic.twitter.com/KOH9FMOMhE

This movie is the reason I had to check my bed for spiders every night for a large part of my childhood (and don’t get me started on the trauma of entering cobweb-filled sheds!) Still ❤ it though. And John Goodman is f-ing awesome in it 😊 #currentlywatching #arachnophobia #comedyhorror #spiders #arachnophobia1990 #arachnophobiamovie #johngoodman #jeffdaniels #90shorror #90smovie #early90shorror #1990 #nostalgia #childhoodfears #horror #horrormovies #horrorfans
