Press Release: A creepy-crawly creature feature based on the centuries-old poem, Itsy Bitsy weaves a sinister web of family drama, personal demons, and a horrifying monster. When a family moves into a secluded mansion, they soon find themselves being targeted by an ancient entity taking the form of a giant spider in the skin-crawling horror film, which makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut October 1st, 2019, from Scream Factory. This release also includes a bevy of bonus features including an audio commentary with writer/director Micah Gallo, featurettes on the creation of the spider, behind the scenes featurettes with the cast and crew, storyboard galleries, and more!

In Itsy Bitsy, Kara, a private nurse and single mother, moves from the big city to the quiet countryside with her two children, 13-year-old Jesse and 8-year-old Cambria, to live with and take care of an elderly man with multiple sclerosis. Things seem normal enough until Jesse discovers a mysterious old relic in the old man's house, leading to unexpected and horrifying things coming to life
