The Spiders Part I: Like the serial work of Louis Feuilladeit is made up of an irregularly long series of films, each around an hour in length.
Lang only made two of the four films he planned in this series: The Spiders are a mysterious gang, who are up to no good throughout the series.
Visually, their costumes are influenced by Feuillade: Plot wise, such gangs remind one of the 's prose fiction of Harry Blythfounder of the Sexton Blake stories.

Packard's The Adventures of Jimmie Dale has his gentleman thief leave behind small gray seals to sign his crimes; the thief is known as The Gray Seal to the press. This device clearly spread, as Sampson pointed out, from Packard to other pulp writers.
The opening of the film, showing the noble American adventurer Kay Hoog arriving at his club, reminds one irresistibly of Keaton's Sherlock, Jr. Hoog enters the film in white tie and tails. His clothes, gestures and body postures while taking off his top coat remind one exactly of Keaton's while he makes his entrance as the Great Detective Sherlock, Jr in that film.
