I was always terrified of being in cold dark basements as a kid. As I would run up the stairs after turning the light off, I always felt like there was something there and I would get a tingle down my spine as if that something was about to grab me. I am terrified of spiders, so I wanted the creature to have a spider look to it, with very long arms and multiple joints.
