BLASTERMIND Creepy-Crawly Quiz

Spider-Man? Bugs? Get it? With Spidey once again in our minds this week – as Andrew Garfield squeezes into the red stripey leotard – it’s time to take a trip down memory lane in this week’s Blastermind as we try and find where each of these horrible, multi-legged beasties are from.

Out of the 15 pictures of arachnid/insect/mutants below, how many of the films and TV shows that they came from can you identify?

For that matter, how many of them give you the willies?

Usual request: please don’t put answers in the comments section below (though feel free to use it to boast/bemoan how well/badly you’re doing) but the folks on this thread are quite happy for you to post and discuss answers if you follow the golden rule of only posting answers in invisible text (if you don’t know how ask somebody there – they’re very friendly).
