Police in Fulshear, Texas shared dash cam video that looks like it came straight out of a horror film.

In the video taken on October 10, an officer can be seen speaking with a driver of a stopped vehicle. As the video continues, a giant spider can be seen creeping slowly toward the officer.

Despite the fear-inducing quality of the video, that ‘giant’ spider is actually normal-sized. Positioned perfectly on the windshield of the patrol car, the spider looks as if it’s walking on the ground and headed straight for the unsuspecting officer.

The Police department says in their Facebook post that the clerk reviewing the video received “quite the Halloween scare.”
