Stern, 58, played bumbling burglar Marv in the big screen hit which propelled child star Macaulay Culkin to fame.

In the 1990 movie, a scene showing Culkin's character Kevin McCallister putting a tarantula on Marv's face and his resulting scream became a hit with fans.

The actor recently posted a video on Facebook commenting he had "received a visit from an old 'friend' this weekend".

The video shows him covering up a red bucket with white paper, commenting: "Guess what I just got in the bucket? I hope I can show you without killing myself."

"Let's take a peek inside the bucket," he says, showing the camera a huge spider in the bucket.

"Ahhhh," he screams while laughing, adding: "Just like in the movie, huh?"

Delighted fans posted photographs of him with the spider on his face from the film.

One commented: "If you asked anyone to name a scene from home alone I bet that most would name 'that scream', closely followed by 'keep the change ya filthy animal'."

Another wrote: "Looking good, Daniel. Won't forget that scream ever. By the way, you are the reason why I have seen Home alone lots of times".

Stern's character Marv was the sidekick to Joe Pesci's character, Harry Lime.
