Hanns Heinz Ewers was a German horror writer, and the introduction notes that much of his work has a decadent feel to it. Yet what strikes one immediately about this story is that it seems more like a detective story. From the outset there is something odd about this person who sits in her window, across the street, spinning. The reader, alerted by the title of the story, will probably already be suspicious of Clarimonde, particularly when it has been noted that a spider was associated with the corpse of the dead police sergeant, although Bracquemont himself does not know this.

Here are the walking dead, the fetid pools of slime, the howls in the night that you thought you had confined to your more unpleasant dreams.

The Spider is perhaps the strangest and most disturbing of all the stories written by Hanns Heinz Ewers, the German author and occultist who also wrote novels such as Alraune before falling victim to the Nazis. Like Alraune, The Spider is the story of a femme fatale whose charms seem to derive from more than natural sources; it has been described as one of the best psychological horror stories ever written.

For Madame Dubonnet, the owner of the small, cheap guesthouse whose clientele was composed almost completely of employees in a nearby Montmartre vaudeville theater, this second curious death in the same room had very unpleasant consequences. Already several of her guests had moved out, and other regular clients had not come back. She appealed for help to her personal friend, the inspector of police of the ninth precinct, who assured her that he would do everything in his power to help her. He pushed zealously ahead not only with the investigation into the grounds for the suicides of the two guests, but he also placed an officer in the mysterious room.

I’m seriously wondering how this story is not more widely known or recognized. I found it quite happenstance, but I’m glad I purchased it as it is quite cheap on Amazon Kindle. I can’t vouch for H.P. Lovecraft, as I have not read him yet (but I hopefully will), but I hear many people comparing “The Spider” with his works.

I have read Blackwood, though, and “The Spider” did remind me a bit of Algernon Blackwood in its “weirdness” and atmosphere. It is a story that really goes from a mild Point A, to a concerned Point B, to an unsettling Point C, to a creepy and unrelenting Point D. There comes a time when there is an all-consuming element to this story that grips you as much as it does the resident of Room #7. Once in, there is literally no turning back.

I think what really sells any scary, horror type story is either the atmosphere or the feeling one gets afterwards upon reflecting on the said story. If a story stays with you, and you think about its terrible possibilities or implications, it has done its job. If it “gets under your skin” so to speak, it has done its job.

And, “The Spider” does, and then some.

This is a creepy little tale, probably best reserved for Halloween night or something similar. I can honestly say that I’m sure this story has been the source or inspiration for many modern horror tales, horror films or other supernatural stories. In those twenty-three odd pages, Ewers really creates a memorable and chilling tale that is one of the better horror tales out there. I’m just glad I read it during the daytime.
Read this if you like classic horror!

As another writes, completely predictable. Maybe novel at the time but not really worth reading.
Extremely predictable, really. A man notices a male spider wooing a female spider and being consumed after mating. Soon after, he begins a strange hand gesture game with a woman across the street. In the end, he finds himself caught up in her web.

I'm sure, at the time of writing, this was novel and shocking, but for a modern reader, it's just barely adequate. Luckily, as it is so old, it is in the public domain and you can find it free online. I listened to the Librivox recording.
