Exclusive clip from Camel Spiders, the movie inspired by the Iraq Spider Email Hoax

Every year the infamous Camel Spiders email always pops up, claiming evidence of a spider so big it can inject venom into a sleeping victim and chew away a pound of flesh. Sadly, these giant spiders do not exist — until now! Take a look at our exclusive clip from the Camel Spiders movie and learn how one should approach a camel spider. CAMEL SPIDERS!

Here's the official synopsis:

During a routine desert patrol, an U.S. Military unit head by Captain Sturges (Krause) is ambushed by insurgents. Just when they seemed to be outgunned, the attack suddenly stops...and their would-be assassins are dragged off by what a native liaison calls "the devils of the sand." Wounded in the battle, Sturges earns a ticket back home to the more hospitable deserts of the Southwestern United States.

Bringing back one of his fallen comrades, Sturges doesn't realize that a couple of camel spiders stowed away and now have access to an environment where they can breed at an exponential rate, freely hunting for prey and unafraid of any predator - including man. No place is safe, no one is beyond their paralyzing sting. In the end, a small band of hearty fighters are forced to make one last stand against the creatures.

On a somewhat related, spider-ish note:

This gif, which I saw earlier on Gawker Crosstalk, is said to be a Sydney Funnel Web spider. I saw it this morning and have been freaked out ever since. Someone tell me it's fake, please!
